SULLIVAN — The Sullivan Eagles wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.

Rolling over longtime nemesis Borgia, 52-14, the Eagles completed a perfect regular season and secured the top seed in the Class 4 District 3 playoffs.

The Eagles will host Pacific next Thursday at 7 p.m. in the opening round of the Class 4 playoffs.

Meanwhile, Borgia likely will be hitting the road. The Knights didn’t help their seventh-place district standing with the performance. District standings will be finalized by MSHSAA this weekend with assignments for next Thursday’s games being posted soon after.

Sullivan relied on Clayton Mayer in the first half and he scored three touchdowns for the Eagles.

Mayer’s first touchdown from four yards out came just 37 seconds into the game, came as the Eagles pushed down the field rapidly after taking the opening kickoff.

Jake Lochner’s extra-point kick made it 7-0.

Borgia’s lone first-half highlight came soon after that. John Baumstark hit Robbie Vossbrink for a 32-yard touchdown pass with 9:33 to play in the quarter. Luke Schriewer’s kick made it 7-7.

Things went Sullivan’s way from there. Lochner hit a 27-yard field goal as the Knights struggled to contain Sullivan after the Eagles were hit by multiple penalties. The kick, with 5:03 to play in the quarter, gave Sullivan the lead for good, 10-7.

Sullivan made things happen on defense as well. Vossbrink went up to catch a high pass and was hit. He did not return to the game with a bruised sternum.

Meanwhile, Sullivan added to its lead in methodical style during the second quarter.

Mayer scored on a 17-yard run with 11:49 to play in the half. He added a three-yard run with 9:31 left in the half. Justin Biermann scored from five yards out with 5:17 to play in the half.

Then, Adam Tiefenbrunn hit Seth Mesey in double coverage and the Sullivan end shrugged off both tacklers to score a 60-yard touchdown with 1:23 left in the half. Lochner was successful on extra-point kicks on all of the touchdowns and the Eagles held a 38-7 lead at the intermission.

Sullivan activated the running clock in the third quarter when Biermann scored on a 60-yard punt return with 10:19 left. Lochner’s kick made it 45-7.

Sullivan’s reserves added another score with 6:44 left in the game. Lochner’s kick made it 52-7.

Borgia picked up one final score late in the game. Baumstark rolled out and hit Tyler Breckenkamp with a five-yard score on the right side with 2:33 to play. Schriewer’s kick made it 52-14, which was the final score.

One of the bigger crowds in the area to see a football game was at Sullivan High School as school officials made a point to have a number of promotions for the fans and the community responded in a big way.

The game featured fireworks after every Sullivan touchdown. A fireworks show also took place after the game.

Fox Sports Midwest recorded the game and it can be found on its website.
