The Sudan Hornets were shutout in a playoff loss to top-ranked Wellington Friday night by a score of 48-0.
Sudan’s run game could not create the big plays they needed to put points on the board. This forced Trent Wilson to throw more than usual leading to three interceptions in the contest.
The offense was held to under 200 yards of offense in the game and was 0-4 in fourth down opportunities. This forced the defense to be on the field for an extended period of time leading to wearing down and the scores mounted.
This loss ended a turnaround season for the Sudan Hornets. This year marked the first time Sudan reached the area playoff game since 2019. The Hornets finished the year 9-3 overall after going 2-8 the year prior. They claimed a share of the district championship with Ralls and sole possession of a bi-district championship after a blowout win over Ropes.
