Mustang defense plays big

Sutton improves to 9-1 with 22-7 win over Battle Creek in C-2 opener

BY TORY DUNCAN

It didn’t take long to figure out that the opening round of the Class C-2 state football playoffs was going to be an old fashion battle out by the woodshed when the 14th seed, Battle Creek Braves, showed up to challenge third seeded Sutton Oct. 26.

Sutton’s defense would be the difference maker in a 22-7 win over the Braves, as three interceptions to stop three strong Battle Creek drives by Cade Wiseman, Dusty Stone and Jordan Davis, along with a monster night from the Mustang defensive line and line-backing group, held the Braves to a mere 99 rushing yards and 87 passing yards in the Mustangs 15-point win.

Sandy Creek, Sutton students attend National FFA Convention

BY KARLA FEHR

A little over 700 miles and 12 hours, nestled in a vehicle full of blue jackets, the Sandy Creek and Sutton FFA Chapters embarked on a convention they will not soon forget.

Six students and two advisors from Sandy Creek and 12 students, one advisor and one sponsor from Sutton took the trip to Indianapolis, IN, last week, Oct 24-27, for the 91st National FFA Convention.

Each school also had one member selected to be part of the National FFA Choir. Sutton senior Megan Fehr and Sandy Creek senior Rami Hinrichs were both selected for the prestigious, 85 member National Choir.

SC students attending the convention included juniors Connor Crumbliss and Neika Buschkoetter, sophomores Jason Brockman and Hunter Cox, and freshmen Caitlin Rempe and John Brodrick. They were accompanied by new co-advisors Mattison Sullivan and Jacob Goldfuss.

Time for a change in Nebraska’s playoff system?

By Tory Duncan

Nebraska in many ways, regarding high school football, is very unique in some aspects...in other ways, we’re just like most other state’s playoff systems, but something really made me think after the first week of the NSAA playoffs for all six classes.

First off, the D-1 and D-2 playoffs with still having 32 teams advance to the playoffs is far too many teams. This isn’t the first time I’ve mentioned this, especially after the C-1 and C-2 playoffs backed off from 32 teams to 16.

Class C-2 was the only class this year that didn’t have a team with a losing record advance.

Halloween is a haunting time

By Ashley D. Swanson

Loetta and I spent Saturday in Clay Center preparing for the community club’s second annual haunted house.

This year our mission was to scare people worse than last year, which sounds mean, but it was all in good spirit.

A majority of the day was spent setting the 4-H building up—with the amazing help of the Piper family. Then 5:30 p.m. rolled around, which meant it was time for makeup.
