Sutton one win away from first state title since 1988

SUTTON, Neb. (KSNB) - The Sutton football team is a playoff regular. This year marks the tenth straight season the Mustangs (11-1) made it to the postseason.

Sutton huddles up during their C-2 Semifinal win over BRLD.

The Mustangs haven't been to the C-2 title game since 2012 though, and haven't won one since 1988.

That can change on Tuesday, as the top seed in C-2 will square off with the second seed Oakland-Craig (12-0) Tuesday at 2:45 p.m., at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln.

The Mustangs have been the cream of the crop all year long. With a lethal run game that has racks up over 350 yards a game, and a stout defense that allows just 13 points per game.

A recipe that has worked for Sutton all season long, and will be put to the test one final time Tuesday.

"It would mean everything, just all the hard work we put in for four years, all the dedication we put in for four years." said senior Jarvis Smith. "It would just mean everything to the town if we won."

"It feels great, I mean it's been our dream since elementary growing up," said Jackson Perrien. "So finally getting to that goal, especially in my senior year, it feels great."

"To put in all that work and finally have the results that we've had, it's just a great feeling to have," said junior Cade Wiseman. "So for the championship we want the same outcome, a W."
