Yutan sinks Sutton in C-2 opener

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.

Thursday afternoon’s Class C-2 state tournament opener at Lincoln Northeast High School will mark the first time in basketball that the Sutton Mustangs and Yutan Chieftains will square off on the hardwood.

Sutton’s history in Lincoln runs much deeper, having qualified for the state tournament 29 times, while Yutan has advanced 12 times.

Sutton has been void of the big dance since 2014, while Yutan has only qualified once since 1994, that being last year when the Chieftains finished fourth in the Class C-2 tournament.

Sutton owns four state championships and Yutan, one, as the Mustangs took titles in 1919 in Class B, in 1922 in Class A and more recently, Sutton owns a C-1 title in 1989, along with a C-2 title in 2003. Yutan’s lone state title came in 1924, winning the Class E state title.

Alma edges Cougars in C2-9 sub-districts

JORDYN HULINSKY | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

Freshman Josh Shaw had eight points and a team high 12 rebounds in the Cougars’ 50-47 season ending loss to Alma in the semifinals of the C2-9 Sub-District tournament, played at Adams Central Feb. 19.

The Alma Cardinals, with a strong second half run, would erase Sandy Creek’s 21-16 first half lead, going on a 34-26 second half scoring spree to edge out the Cougars from advancing in the C2-9 Sub-District basketball tournament at Adams Central High School, Feb. 19.

Sandy Creek opened play on an 11-6 first quarter run, before both teams hit for 10 second quarter points to give the Cougars the five-point, 21-16 first half lead.

It would be a 13-9 third quarter run by Alma that brought the Cardinals back to within one point, trailing Sandy Creek 30-29. The second-seeded Cardinals then went on a 21-17 fourth quarter run to rally for the three-point, 50-47 win, ending the Cougars’ season with a 5-18 record.

Sutton holds off Centura

Sutton players and fans alike celebrate their breathtaking 47-45 win over Centura in the C2-3 and Garrett Nuss embrace after Sutton held on for the win to advance to the state tournament District Final at Grand Island Senior High Monday night. In the foreground, seniors Seth George for the first time since 2014.

With big wins over BDS and Tri County in Sub-District play, the Sutton Mustangs needed to take one more step toward their dream of playing in the 2019 Nebraska State Basketball championships Monday, and that was to beat Centura High School.

The Mustangs, who hadn’t advanced to state since 2014, seemingly had the right scenario in place to make that dream come true, playing the Centurions, a team in which Sutton dismantled earlier in the season, whipping the Centura boys 73-42, back on Dec. 20 in the Sutton Dome.

This time, however, Centura coach Dave Oman and his squad had a little plan up their sleeves, that seemingly caught the Mustangs off guard on the Grand Island Senior High floor.
