Chassup Richmond is a different animal when it comes to the amount of people. Creek can't pack them in here like the Raiders or even Marlboro County. They'll be at least 2 games attended more than this one at Scotland this year.

Hey cc14 I knew the footsoldier was coming 2 months ago.

ITS GETTING CLOSER DAILY.

Couldnt disagree more. If it was a Friday night game maybe but it will be the only game in the state. Dillon has been standing room only both times MC was there and it was friday. It wont be the Creek fans that make up the difference. It will be the surronding area including the Richmond fan base. You will also pull from South Carolina and up into Raleigh.  

 

Creek draws when they travel like this and it will be for many the only time they get a chance to see the best RB in the country. There is a reason MC agreed to play this game.. It was $$$

I agree with Wrigley. Big gate due to all the factors. Hope I am not proven wrong.

Scotland Homer here and I have to agree with Wrigley on this one.  This game is the only game going on in the state that night. I myself will be coming in from Raleigh.  I'll go a step further and say we break any attendance record that has previously been recorded. I know Richmond and Marlboro are "money grabbers" for us, but this game will be on another level.  

 

Can't wait, should be fun!

Due to being the first game of the year I do not think it is an all time Pate attendance record.  If the weather could be perfect that would get many more people to come out.  Can't wait to see how the crowd is and how the game plays out!

Since I see I'm off from work that day I'm going to make every effort to go. Anyone have an idea time wise from Mooresville area to Scotland? I know I will need to leave early.

I'd plan on 2.5 hours. 74 through Monroe or 601 through concord can back up quick

Unless you've increased seating you won't set any attendance records ( other than for a Thursday maybe).  The Fire Marshal stopped fans from coming in a few years ago for a Richmond v Scotland game. Said the stadium was over capacity. Turned fans away before half time.

Doesn't Richmond still have that "underground pipeline" to SC???  I remember some studs back in the day that came in from Wallace, SC ...

Don't touch 74 until Wadesboro or you'll stuck in traffic....Take 73 to 85s to 485s to 218 in Mint Hill. Brings you out in Polkton right outside Wadesboro...You'll miss all Monroe/Wingate/Marshville traffic.

 

152E to 52s to 74 in Wadesboro is not a bad option either, just a little slower and longer.

I hope so.  It's not everyday that you get to see one of the top running backs in America go up against a juggernaut like Mallard Creek.  

 

I just hope the bugs aren't as bad at Pate as they were at Richmond last year.  I've never seen an influx of insects that big in all my life.  I was expecting to see a few dinosaurs roaming on school grounds as I exited the stadium.

Are they pre-selling tickets or is it first come, first serve?

What area do you guys think is the most important aspect in deciding who wins this game? Typically in a big game it's who wins the turnover battle. I'm thinking special teams might be the deciding factor. Both teams have size on both sides and speed. Both teams have unknowns at QB. Scotland may not even have a legit kicker, not one listed on the maxpreps roster. Not looking for smack talk just a legit assessment from the experts.


Might be cliched but imo the winner of this game will be the team who dictates play at the LOS. I'm not overly familiar with Scotland County-- so I'm not sure what they bring to the table as far as line play goes-- but for as long as I've known MC, that has always been a very reliable strength for the Mavericks.

Bugs aren't usually a problem. 

 

Great game no doubt. Cant wait to see this matchup. 

The size of MC maybe unlike what Scotland has seen,

and with it that line play talked about above. No doubt the

pressure is on here with how last year ended, but hard not

to take the team with many players coming back with a chip on. 

. It is thought that Scotland will have to throw it or

at least do it to a degree when you meet that team that can

actually stop your run game, as good as it maybe. 

All that is to be figured out. I generally think Scotland will do

what they do. Third and 3 final drive, hard for me not to go down

with what you do best, even if that leads to 4th and 2.Then ?

   I think about something I heard coach say one time. Everybody

has a play call when youre moving the ball and things are just going great,

but you can hear the crickets chirp on that 4th and 2.

I stay in Forsyth County (2 hours away), if I show up 2 hours before the game, do you think tickets will be sold out?

No, I think if you arrive by 5 you'll be there just in time, before the visitor line swells.
