Yutan sinks Sutton in C-2 opener

TORY DUNCAN | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

Above: The Sutton student body gets into the action during the Mustangs battle with Yutan. The “whiteout” condition seemingly fit the day, as snowfall in the overnight hours Wednesday night into Thursday morning left a blanket of snow in Sutton and Lincoln. At the right: Kyle Baumert has the look of determination during the fourth quarter of Sutton’s opening round loss to the Chieftains in the Class C-2 tournament. Baumert ended the game with seven points to close out his high school career.

Quenton Jones takes off down court early in the Mustangs first-round loss to Yutan. Sutton struggled early with their offensive production in the 55-45 loss to the Chieftains at Lincoln Northeast. Moving up the court with Jones is Seth George,

(23) and Garrett Nuss.

TORY DUNCAN | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

Senior Seth George goes in for two of his 11 points, which led the Mustangs against Yutan Thursday afternoon at Lincoln Northeast High School. Looking on, to the left of George, is senior Kyle Baumert who added seven tallies to the cause. The 10-point loss to the Chieftains ended the Mustangs season at 24-3.

Coming off a thrilling 47-45 win over Centura in the C2-3 District Final Feb. 25, the Sutton Mustangs had big plans for their next step, the Class C-2 state tournament, but in an unlikely way, Sutton’s opening round game against the Yutan Chieftains would start off on an ice cold streak, which left the Mustangs in catch-up mode throughout the opening game of the tournament at Northeast High School in Lincoln.

The March 7 battle with Yutan would see Sutton open the game making just three of 16 shots from the floor in the first quarter.

While Sutton was shooting just under 19 percent in the opening eight minutes, Yutan, who at one point led 12-2 in the first, had to hold off a five-point run by the Mustangs late in the quarter to claim a 12-7 first quarter edge.
