Middle Creek didn’t seem bothered by the fact that, going into Friday, Wake Forest hadn’t lost a regular-season game since November 2013.
The two-time defending state champion Cougars got just about all they could handle, but they managed to pull away in a 22-9 to keep their streak rolling.
Middle Creek senior Sherrod Ray hauled in two interceptions in the second quarter, helping to set up a Mustang field goal that gave the home side a 9-8 lead.
Wake Forest took over from there, though. Mateo Sudipo went coast-to-coast on a 90-yard kickoff return to kickstart a flurry of 14 unanswered points.
