Sutton battles to claim ‘chess match’ over Hawks

Two teams with contrasting seasons went head-tohead at Duncan Field in Hastings, Sept. 9, as the Sutton Mustangs and Hastings St. Cecilia Bluehawks provided fans from both sides more of a chess match atmosphere in much of the annual battle between the two rivals.

The Mustangs improved to 3-0 on the year with a bruising 18-7 win over St. Cecilia (1-2).

Mustangs Hold off D-T in Thriller

A classic barn burner during the opening week of the 2016 high school football season would see Class C-2, fourth ranked Sutton use a healthy dose of hardnosed running and a stealthy defensive effort to hold off ninth ranked Doniphan-Trumbull 40-34 in Doniphan. In the early going, it looked as if the Cardinals might take full control of the Mustangs, outscoring Sutton 14-6 in the first quarter. Nearly four minutes into the game, the Cardinals hit paydirt with a 20-yard pass play to post an early 7-0 lead on Sutton.
