Sutton remains perfect

The Mustangs improve to 3-0, defeating St. Cecilia 24-6 at home Friday

BY JORDYN HULINSKY

Sutton’s football team’s undefeated season remains alive and well as the Mustangs, behind a 16-point third quarter performance, improved to 3-0 with a 24-6 win Friday night over the Hastings St. Cecilia Bluehawks.

The Bluehawks kicked off to begin the game, deferring to the second half. Sutton, in turn, went on an 11-play drive with six first downs. Junior Brett Simonsen took the first five rushes for two first downs. The Mustangs initial drive, however, ended with an interception on the first pass play of the game.

St. Cecilia quickly handed the ball back with a threeand- out. Sutton earned another first down in the next five-play drive, which ended in a senior Chandler Stone punt.

BY JORDYN HULINSKY

A low-scoring battle resulted in Sandy Creek’s second loss of the season, as the Cougars dropped a 7-0 decision to the Panthers of Fillmore Central in Geneva Friday.

Sutton maintains, conquers

Sutton earned the “W” during the first game of the football season, blanking Doniphan-Trumbull Friday night, as the Mustangs shutout the Cardinals, 14-0 on their home field.

Sutton scored once in the second and again in the fourth quarter, while adding two bonus points, following the second-quarter touchdown. Sutton was stopped on the two-point shot in the fourth period.

The game started a little rocky. Doniphan-Trumbull kicked an on-side kick to start the game, which Sutton downed on the 50-yard-line. But Sutton fumbled on the fourth play of the drive and the Cardinals recovered.

Friesen continually ropes in success

Adilynn (Adi) Friesen earned much success in her year of horse showing, again. Friesen, who said her goal for the year was to do better than last year and to simply make it to the AQHYA show, succeeded her goal and is now striving for even more.

At the AQHYA in Oklahoma City Aug. 4–12, Friesen competed in her best three classes and was happy with qualifying for the event, she said. But then when she was called back for finals, she was so excited she “skipped down the halls,” Friesen said.

6 county athletes continue careers

Three Sutton grads will return to the gridiron this fall as Doane Tigers. No. 8 Cole Wiseman, 2014 graduate, will be playing his senior year for the Tigers. He was an honorable mention All- GPAC player his freshman year, followed by a First Team All-GPAC his sophomore year as defensive back.

Wiseman scored his first touchdown off a punt return in that game when he ran for 62 yards. He also grabbed an interception in that game and led the team with 10 tackles. He led the team in punt returns last season with 17 for 211 yards, with the longest being his 62-yard touchdown.
