Senior Cory Carlson (23) had a monster night on defense with eight solo tackles and six assists, as well as two sacks in the Mustangs 16-point win over Battle Creek. Here, Carlson and Joe Hinrichs bring down Braves quarterback Payton Frederick in the third quarter of the win.

Sutton’s home field clash with the Battle Creek Braves in the Class C-2 playoff quarterfinal round wasn’t for the queasy, as after the Mustangs took an 8-6 first quarter lead, the visiting Braves put Sutton in a hole at halftime, as a 15-0 second quarter run by Battle Creek left the Mustangs reeling in a quarter of turnovers and mistakes, as Battle Creek led 21-8 going into the final 24 minutes of the playoff tilt.

Sutton turned up the heat to a boiling point in the second half, as the Mustangs pulled a Houdini magical act like no other. Sutton outscored the Braves 36-7 in the second half to record an incredible turn around, claiming a 44-28 win to keep the Mustang season alive and well.

With the win, Sutton improved to 10-1 on the year, while Battle Creek ends the 2019 season at 9-2.

Set for the semifinals

Friday, Nov. 8, will be a night that Sutton and Harvard football fans won’t soon forget. The Mustangs erased a 21-8 first half deficit, outscoring the Battle Creek Braves, 36-7, in the second half to get into the Class C-2 state semifinals for the second straight year.

In contrast, Harvard fans had to hold their breath in the second half to ensure that their Cardinals qualified for their fourth straight appearance in the six-man state semifinal round. The Cardinals, who at one point held a 32-6 lead early in the second quarter of their clash with the Warriors of Sioux County (Harrison), watched on as the Warriors outscored Harvard, 66-46, in the final 28 minutes of the 40 minute battle, falling short in their comeback bid, as the Cardinals perched on top of a 78-72 victory and maintained its perfect record, improving to 10-0 on the year.

Sutton routes Yutan

Sutton’s football team opened the C-2 state playoffs with what many people thought could be a dangerous first round challenge in the Yutan Chieftains.

In 2017, the Chieftains went into the C-2 state playoffs as the No. 16 seed and ran the table to claim the C-2 state title.

This year, after a year away from the playoffs for Yutan, the very same scenario stood, as the Mustangs, the top seed in the post-season, hosted the No. 16 seed Chieftains.

A determined and powerful running game, however, made sure that history wouldn’t repeat itself, as the Mustangs, behind a strong stable of backfield mates, rolled up 462 rushing yards on 52 carries and crushed Yutan, 46-7, to advance to the quarterfinal round of the playoffs.
