Mallard Creek’s 2017 football schedule won’t be quite as difficult as the Mavericks embarked on last season, but features two marquee games to start the season:

▪ On Aug. 17, the Mavericks will play at Scotland County, which features running back Zamir White, a top 10 national recruit. Scotland County was 14-1 last season, losing in the fourth round of the N.C. 4A playoffs.

▪ On Aug. 25, the next week, the Mavericks will host rival Butler, in an annual meeting of two of the state’s top N.C. 4AA programs.
