A few plays later, Sumpter the running back ran in a tough 3-yard touchdown to give Santa Fe a 15-point lead that seemed like it might be enough to put away the pesky Broncos.

“I love doling out the punishment,” said Sumpter, who also scored on a 20-yard reception from Justice Hansen in the third quarter.

“It’s different, but I try to make the punishment instead of taking the punishment on both sides.”

But Mustang fought back to tie the game at 35 with just over five minutes remaining when gritty quarterback Frankie Edwards tossed a 23-yard touchdown to Colton Hadlock and then ran in the 2-point conversion.

In overtime, though, Edwards was picked off on second down by the Wolves’ Eric Davis.

After Santa Fe advanced to Mustang’s 1-yard line, Manning went back to Sumpter, who bulldozed his way into the end zone to give the Wolves an important District 6A-4 win.

“He did everything tonight,” Hansen said.

“Defensively, offensively. Even when yards aren’t there, he’s someone who can grind it out, put his head down and get a few yards.

“That’s what he did. That’s how he got in the end zone there at the end.”
