Cardinals finish strong, post 5-3 record

The drive to finish strong in 2020 led the Harvard football team to their fifth straight winning season under the direction of head coach Scott Trimble.

It looked as if it was going to be tough to break even on the year after the first four weeks of the season, as a 38-0 road win over St. Edward proved to be the lone win for the Cardinals in the opening four weeks.

Harvard fell to Spalding Academy (47-40) and to Mc- Cool Junction (50-6) during the first two weeks, then after the 38-point blanking of St. Edward, fell on the road to Red Cloud 49-26 before going on a four-game winning streak to close out the season.

Harvard took down Silver Lake 50-14 after the Red Cloud loss, the gained a 67-7 win over Elba, before posting an 83-51 win over Wilcox-Hildreth and a gutsy 50-39 win over the Franklin Flyers in the season finale.

Bergan ousts Sutton from playoffs

Friday’s quarterfinal round of the Class C-2 state football playoffs took the Sutton Mustangs to Fremont to challenge the top-seeded Archbishop Bergan Knights.

The first 24 minutes of the game, a span covering the first and second quarters, the Mustangs held their own, as Sutton trailed just 7-0 at the half.

It would be the opening three and a half minutes of the third quarter, however, that put the Mustangs on the back of their heels, with the Knights taking the opening kick-off 80 yards in the first 3:21 of the quarter, combined with a fumbled kickoff return by Sutton that quickly took the Knights to a 21-0 lead with 7:47 left to play in the third stanza that led Bergan to the quarterfinal round win.

The loss ended Sutton’s 2020 season with a 7-2 record, while the Knights advanced to the state semifinal round against the Yutan Chieftains Friday.
