SUTTON — The ball always bounced Sutton's way Friday.
The Mustangs recovered three Southern Valley fumbles, all of them leading to touchdowns, to lift Sutton to a 46-14 win over the Eagles in the opening round of the state football playoffs.
Sutton travels to Battle Creek Wednesday in a Class C-2 second-round matchup.
"Sometimes you need a little luck, the ball bouncing your way," said Sutton coach. "We got them tonight and then we took care of business."
