STC Downs Fillies in Three

For the third time this season, the Sutton Fillies and Hawkettes of Hastings St. Cecilia would meet up, this time, for a much bigger reason, to earn a trip to the 2015 Class C-2 State Volleyball Championships. In the early going stretch of the match, it appeared the Fillies would set sail on their second win over the Hawkettes, as the Fillies held a 20-15 lead over St. Cecilia in the first set. That lead, however, was quickly reduced, as the Hawkettes battled back into the set and eventually gained a 25-23 first set win.

Class C2-7 Sub-District First Round Highlights

Sandy Creek Survives Opener with Titans

First round action at the C2-7 Sub-District volleyball tournament held at Friend High School was a breathtaking outing for the Sandy Creek volleyball team. It was nearly breathtaking in the wrong way, as Sandy Creek barely survived a first round upset loss at the hands of the 13-17 Thayer Central girls Monday night. The Lady Cougars dropped the first two sets of this soon to be five set survival run for Sandy Creek, as the Lady Titans shocked the Lady Cougars and fans alike, beating SC 25-20, 25-21 in the opening two sets.

Sutton Holds Off Irish in C-2 Opener

In their sixth season under the direction of head coach Steve Ramer, the Sutton Mustangs produced the program’s sixth playoff win, with Ramer at the helm. Ramer, along with assistant coaches Chad Wiseman, Craig Rafert and Zach Parrish, devised a strong defensive plan, while staying with their typical “punch you in the mouth” bulldozing type offensive scheme, as the Mustangs welcomed in the North Platte St. Patrick’s Irish Oct. 30, to open the 2015 Class C-2 State playoffs in Sutton. The eventual 18-15 win over the Irish, to set Sutton’s playoff record at 6-5 under Ramer and his staff, didn’t come without some hold your breath moments, however.

Bluehawks Down Sutton 36-22

Friday night’s trip to Duncan Field to take on the Hastings St. Cecilia Bluehawks, in the end, wouldn’t be the final result that the Sutton Mustangs had hoped for. In the grand scheme of the season, a 36-22 loss at the hands of the Bluehawks, which dropped Sutton to 7-1 on the year, keeps the Mustangs in the top five of the Nebraska School Activities Association’s Class C-2 points standings, with one game to go on the regular season this week. The Mustangs opened the Friday night battle in Hastings with a clock chewing pounding drive, as Sutton burned up five minutes en route the endzone.

Mustangs Hold off D-T 16-13

The Sutton Mustangs, coming off their opening C2-7 District win over Sandy Creek Sept. 25, would see another big challenge entering the Sutton sports complex this past Friday, as the once beaten Doniphan-Trumbull Cardinals would do battle with the Mustangs. Two contrasting styles of offense, with Sutton’s “punch you in the mouth” running game and D-T’s hurry up shotgun style offense, made for an interesting night for players and fans alike.
