Simonsen, line play leads Sutton past Aquinas 46-21

Sutton’s football Mustangs put together one of their biggest performances of the season this past Friday night in David City, as the Mustangs, behind powerful offensive and defensive line play, and a record setting rushing night for senior Brett Simonsen, barreled through the Monarchs of Aquinas Catholic 46- 21 in the quarterfinal round of the Class C-2 playoffs. It marks Sutton’s first win over Aquinas, dating back to a 35-20 loss to the Monarchs in the 2012 Class C-2 state championship game, as well as a tough 55-16 loss in David City to the Monarchs in 2015. This night belonged to the Mustangs, and it started from the onset of the opening kickoff.

Cards route Cowboys 70-37

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

Prior to the third consecutive battle between Harvard and Cody-Kilgore, Head Coach Scott Trimble felt confident in his team, “I feel like we had a good week of preparation. The guys are pretty focused on what they need to do,” he said. “In three years of six-man football, the field we’ve played on the most besides our own is this one, so I think we feel right at home and we’re ready to go.” Although the Cardinals secured a 33-point win over the Cowboys, the first quarter started out rocky for Harvard, with a back-andforth of touchdowns and faulty plays. C-K pushed forward quickly, after successfully grabbing the kickoff from Harvard, making their first touchdown at the 8:53 mark; with a poor kick, the scoreboard read 6-0, C-K up.

Fillies trip Sandy Creek, fall to Superior in C2-3 sub-district tourney

BY TORY DUNCAN

The season for the Sutton Fillies and Sandy Creek Cougars came to a close Monday night for both teams in action at the C2-3 Sub-District tournament, hosted by Adams Central High School, west of Hastings.

Sutton, however, would rebound from a three set loss to Sandy Creek just a week ago, as the Fillies, before a straight sets, 25-9, 25-14, 25-21 loss to second ranked and top seed Superior, would avenge a 25-23, 20-25, 17-25 loss to the Cougars on Oct. 23 and take down the Cougars 25-16, 25-15, 19-25, 25-21, to advance to the bout with Superior Monday night.

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.

Bottorf: The voice of Sutton football

BY TORY DUNCAN

You might run into Bill Bottorf on the street and you might get into a comical discussion, and yet at other times, that talk might be about local happenings. Bottorf is a man that seems to be in the know.

If you put Bottorf behind the microphone, sky high above Sutton’s football field, you’ll always get that light hearted, well informed man.

It was evident that the Cardinals wanted control of the game, as the team posted 38 points on the scoreboard by the end of the first quarter, via touchdowns by juniors David Rezola and Noah Okraska, and seniors Cory Marshall and Hunter Wilkerson.
