A game that was very similar on both sides of the ball saw several lead changes with the final result Sutton edging out BDS 40-35.

In the forth quarter Sutton led the rest of the way for the “W”.

Both teams came into the night at 3-0, but only one would remain undefeated. That was Sutton.
It was a rough night for the BDS Eagles. The Sutton Mustangs broke out to an early lead and never looked back in this one. They led the entire game and ended up winning 58-26.
At one point Sutton led by 17.
A combination of Sutton’s potent offense and pesky defense was more than BDS could handle.
Sutton Junior Jacob Haight led the way off the bench with 11 points. He was the only Mustang in double digits.
BDS didn’t help their cause by missing open shots, and several missed passes.
Kyle Ardissono led the Eagles with only 7 points. He was also 1 of two from the stripe.
Sutton just played a man to man defense that never really let up all night, and when BDS did have a chance to shoot the ball, they missed on most occasions, or they turned it over.
Sutton didn’t miss many shots all night. They had 5 from beyond the arc.
That is the least amount of points BDS had scored all season.
