Cougars fall in heart breaker to Bluehawks in C2-7 district bout

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

When the rain started coming down on Duncan Field in Hastings Friday night, where the Sandy Creek Cougars took on the St. Cecilia Bluehawks, there was no stopping it.

Despite Mother Nature’s wrath, SC fans watched as the Cougars battled close to their first win of the season, falling just short of three points at the end.

Continued efforts by Sandy Creek’s offensive side resulted in the first touchdown of the evening at the 2:36 mark, when junior Dylan Schweer rushed to the end zone, taking the 7-0 lead, with the kick.

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.

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.
