Longhorns finish regular season with 47-16 win over Sutherland PDF Print E-mail

The Chase County Longhorns finished the regular season in strong fashion Friday, defeating Sutherland 47-16.
The win gave the Longhorns a 10-13 record going into the C1-11 subdistrict Tuesday where they faced 7-10 Gothenburg.
Coach Carl Zuege said there was a different atmosphere for Friday’s game. The varsity game was played first at 5 p.m. followed by just two quarters of jayvees.
“The guys did a good job of creating their own energy,” he said, because of the early start and no crowd warm-up from a jayvee game.
The Longhorns held Sutherland to two points in the first quarter while posting 10 points, including seven from Isaac Sorensen.
By half, they led 23-11 and opened up the lead even further in the third. Paced by a pair of treys from Travis Luhrs, the Longhorns posted  another 13 points while holding Sutherland scoreless in the quarter.
Zuege said they tried some different defensive schemes they planned to use in the subdistricts against Gothenburg.
In the final quarter, the Longhorns added another 11 points while holding Sutherland to five for the 47-16 win.
Luhrs led the scoring with eight with a total of 10 players scoring.
Zuege said he felt good about his team going into subdistricts.
He said they’ve had three weeks of really good practices. The test will be whether they can translate that into game situations.
