SHS football loses a tough one to Sutton
October 14, 2021
It was a tough loss to take for the Superior Wildcats. Their road trip to Sutton resulted in a 28-21 loss to the Mustangs.
The teams played each other even with the score tied at 14 all when the half arrived.
Sutton managed to take a 21-14 lead into the fourth quarter but the Wildcats did not give up. Sutton scored a touchdown and took a 28-14 lead. Superior kept up the pressure and scored with two minutes remaining. The on-side kick was successful as they recovered the ball to take possession with good field position.
This is where that intangible element introduces itself. A less that stellar call by an official robbed the Wildcats of their momentum. To compound their error, the officials started the clock running when it was not supposed to. As their is no mechanism to challenge this, the Wildcats coaching staff could only stare and silently rain their displeasure on the officiating crew. With no time left to complete their comeback, Superior was left with a loss when they could have at least had a decent shot at going into overtime. The loss left Superior with a 4-3 season record.
