For the first time this season, we have a new #1 team in the FFN Top 10 driven by Town and Country Ford.
Mallard Creek is the new #1 team after beating previously unbeaten Hough 38-21. The Mavericks got the first place vote on the fan ballot as they got nearly a thousand votes. That is a key factor in why they leaped over Northwestern to take the top spot.
The Trojans come in at #2 with Burns, South Point, and Charlotte Christian rounding out the top 5.
Davidson Day jumped up 2 spots to #6 while York held steady at #7.
The new #8 team is the Concord Spiders.
Positions #9 and #10 are occupied by 2 new comers to the poll.
For the first time is school history, North Rowan is in the FFN Top 10. They come in at #9. The 7-0 Cavaliers are making the move from 1A to 2A and they are making it look easy thus far.
And rounding out the top 10 is Hibriten at #10 The Panthers are making their first ever appearance into the poll in program history. They too are undefeated at 7-0, but have very tough games in the next 2 weeks as Friday, they are at 6-1 Hibriten and next Friday, they are at 6-1 Freedom.
Hough and South Iredell fall out of the top 10 after tough losses last Friday.
Here is the complete FFN Top 10.
1. Mallard Creek
4. South Point
5. Charlotte Christian
6. Davidson Day
9. North Rowan
Others receiving votes include South Iredell, Hough, Butler, Maiden, and A.L. Brown.
