Sumner lost at home to Cascade Christian 42-27 Saturday and beat Lincoln 15-10 in a mini-game Dec. 1 at Curtis High.

Against Cascade Christian Jordan Bone was the top scorer with 12 points.

“I was pleased with the team’s effort,” coach Brett McDaniel said. “The kids are getting a lot better. Everyone is buying in and now it is a matter of the kids just playing.”
