Multiple Teams · North Dallas stopped by Creekview defense

Carrollton Creekview has the best defense in District 11-5A and it was evident Friday night as the Mustangs rolled to a 31-0 victory over North Dallas at Couch Field.

The Bulldogs were limited to 36 yards and six first downs, and also punted 10 times. North Dallas also had 12 penalties for 80 yards.

Senior Running back Geovani Manning took over at quarterback for KeVon Price, who was injured in the first quarter, and then went to the sideline with a shoulder injury in the third quarter.

The Bulldogs are now 3-3 overall and 0-3 in District 11-5A. Creekview is 4-2 and 3-0. North Dallas plays Newman Smith next at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 15, at Carrollton’s Standridge Stadium.

Manning finished with 38 yards rushing on 22 carries, and now has 1,082 yards rushing this season.

North Dallas punted on its first possession, but the ball sailed over the punter’s head, and Creekview took over at the North Dallas 3-yard-line. Creekview scored two plays later for a 7-0 lead.

The Bulldogs’ defense played well at times, holding Creekview scoreless when it had a first down at the ND 9-yard-line in the first quarter and also holding Creekview to a field goal in the second quarter for a 10-0 halftime lead.

The Creekview band was impressive at halftime, but the Oklahoma University band also gave an excellent performance.
