My­ers Park foot­ball coach Scott Chad­wick was wor­ried about his team be­ing rusty in the first round of the N.C. 4AA play­offs Fri­day. The Mus­tangs hadn’t played since Oct. 26.

It didn’t take too long for My­ers Park to show Chad­wick that he didn’t have to worry.

The Mus­tangs won 55-7 over Prov­i­dence and ended the five-game win­ning streak of the tri-cham­pi­ons from the SoMeck 7 con­fer­ence.

Trey Bly re­turned an in­ter­cep­tion 75 yards for a score on the game’s first pos­ses­sion. And af­ter the Mus­tangs grabbed a 14-0 lead, Cameron Rose­manSin­clair in­ter­cepted an­other pass, re­turn­ing it 33 yards for a three-score lead.

“We had a lit­tle bit of rust there at the start,” Chad­wick said, “and we knocked it off pretty quickly.”

In prac­tice re­cently, glad we had the op­por­tu­nity to play.”
