Cory Carlson (23) and Joe Hinrichs work together to bring down an Oakland-Craig Knight. Moving in on the play for Sutton is Maury Bautista (16).

Work ethic. That is what Sutton Head Football Coach Steve Ramer shared after the Sutton Mustangs fell short of the ultimate goal, the Class C2 State Championship Tuesday afternoon at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln.

“I tell you what, I couldn’t be more proud of our kids. The way they battled and worked their tails off to get where we finished today,” Ramer said. “Sure, a state title would have been great, but these kids have nothing to hang their heads about.”

Sutton, for the first time in 2019, was held scoreless in a game that was dictated by Mother Nature and challenging defenses on the part of both teams Tuesday afternoon.
