On a classic night for high school football, Class C-2 No. 6 St. Cecilia and No. 7 Sutton squared off and played a classic brand of football. Kick-outs, halfback isos, tosses and fullback traps galore.
But it was a long touchdown reception and a kickoff return provided by sophomore Noah Johnson that would help Sutton knock off the Bluehawks 14-6 Friday at Duncan Field.
"When you come here and play (St. Cecilia), we just want to win. They don't want to be the ones to lose two at home, and we knew they were going to be healthy. We had some execution errors, but when you come out with a win, you can improve and you'll be alright," said Sutton head coach Steve Ramer, whose team improves to 5-0. "I think both teams were pretty set on stopping each other's run and that it was going to be a tight ball game. We knew it wasn't going to be high scoring. We thought we needed to get to 20, but 14 ended up being enough."
