Parkview 41, Meadowcreek 0

NORCROSS - Parkview's defense shut down Meadowcreek almost to a standstill Friday night, blanking the Mustangs 41-0.

The Panthers' defense held the Mustangs to 25 yards of total offense and minus-two yards rushing.

Parkview (3-1, 2-0) head coach Cecil Flowe praised his defense for its work, but said the offense needs to work out some problems.

"The defense did a good job, no complaints from start to finish, you played great," Flowe told his team following the game.

Flowe said his players were apathetic on the offensive side, however.

"The offense here is my point of concern was total madness. You've got to be able to fix things that they throw at you," he said. "You're not playing to your ability and we look like we don't want to be here."

Meadowcreek (0-4, 0-2) was never really in the game as the Panthers struck early with senior Jay Davis' lightning 45-yard TD run back on a Mustang punt in the first period.

A few minutes later sophomore Raphael Kirby plunged over the goal line for the Panthers' second score after a 9-yard scamper from A.J. Carroll.

The first-half scoring ended when Parkview quarterback Kalik Barnes scored from two yards out and added the two-point conversion to make it 20-0 at the half. Barnes was 10 of 19 for 182 yards and two TDs.

Barnes took to the air in the third quarter, finding receiver Davis for a 32-yard touchdown with 4:24 left in the period. Davis led the receivers with three catches for 52 yards. Newsome had three catches for 48 yards and Dominique Jefferson had three for 60 yards. The Panthers received great field position when Kamau Brown intercepted a pass, carrying it down to the Meadowcreek 32.

The Panthers stuck early in the fourth period. With 11:47 left, Christian Newsome ran it all the way from 36 yards out and kicker Matt Johnson PAT made it 34-0.

Marquis Webb scored the final touchdown on a seven-yard run.
