The Red Ravens will have many more eyes on them next fall as they look to make the leap to championship contenders.

The Circle Is Unbroken; The Nado's Season Comes To An End

The Nado's 2022 Football season came to a close Friday night, with the weather, ironically playing a factor in the loss. Towanda Circle relied heavily on their running game in the second half to defeat Field Kindley 34-6. Circle jumped out to an early lead with an 86-yard TD catch by Ty Smith; Cooper Chadwell was 4-6 for 128 yards with 2 TDs and an interception in the win. He also added 126 yards on the ground on seven carries, with a touchdown. For the Nado, Jeremy Colbert led the way with 139 yards rushing on 23 carries, with a touchdown. Rain and temperatures in the upper 30s caused slippery turf, which hampered the Nado's ground game. Field Kindley ends the season at 6-4.

Red Ravens cruise against Ottawa JV

 

The Coffeyville Community College Red Ravens women's basketball team came soaring out of the gates to start to the 2022-2023 season, winning 93-43 over the Ottawa JV Braves.

 

A team that struggled to shoot the basketball a season ago (39% from the field, 26% from 3PT), the Ravens shot 52% from the field in the game, as well as hitting 12 three point shots. This step forward was a great sign, according to 4th year head coach Tony Turner.

 

The Ravens were led by Jordan Snyder, scoring 18 points on 8-9 shooting. Other leading scorers were Bailey Layman with 15, Makenzie Davis with 13, and Jordynn Conner with 9. All 15 members of the CCC roster layed at least nine minutes in the game.

Preview: Bullpups battle Council Grove in playoffs

 

The Caney Valley Bullpups continue their quest for a 2A state football championship, with a game Thursday night against Council Grove. Both teams enter this matchup with a 7-2 record on the season.

 

Caney enters fresh off of a 44-16 win over the Eureka Tornados in the opening round of the postseason, while Council Grove had no problems with Fredonia, winning 48-8 over the Yellow Jackets.

 

The Bullpups, all season long, have showcased a ground and pound style of offense, designed by coach Criss Davis, and primarly executed by the two-headed monster of Jackson Griffin and Aston King. The two star running backs have combined for 300+ rushing yards in six different games this season, including last week against Eureka.

 

On the defensive side of the ball, Ben Matthews has become a massive presence off the edge for Caney, rushing the quarterback and sealing off the edge, not allowing running backs and receivers to get to the sideline. Another key piece of the Bullpups defense is Drake Stapleton, a senior who plays a large role in making sure each member of the defense is in the correct spot.

 

The Council Grove Braves offer talented players at both quarterback and running back, according to Davis. The defense is also stout, only giving up more than 16 points twice this season.

 

Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Thursday night, with pregame at 6:15. You can catch the Bullpups this week with the voice of Caney, Chris Freund, on the mighty 690 KGGF AM.

 

Coffeyville CC MBB starts tonight

 

There always seems to be great excitement surrounding the start of Coffeyville CC Red Raven basketball season, and the 2022-2023 edition brings no exception.

 

The Red Ravens will open tonight at 7:30 p.m. facing off with Southwestern JV. CCC is coming off a season where they finished 18-13, and 14-9 in conference play.

 

Although the roster is very inexperienced with 12 freshman, there is outstanding size, speed, and athleticism across the floor, particularly at the wings. Six players open the season listed at 6'6" or taller.

 

It is impossible to talk about Coffeyville basketball without mentioning head coach Jay Herkelman. Now heading into his 28th season at the helm of the Red Ravens, Herkelman is the winningest coach in NJCAA history, as well as a 2018 NJCAA hall of fame inductee.

 

A challenge presenting CCC this season is discovering who will emerge to help fill the void left by star guard Love Bettis, who transferred to North Carolina A&T. Bettis averaged 18.1 points per game last season, and Herkelman will experiment with different rotations and looks from his team to see who can become the top scoring option.

Coffeyville CC WBB tips off

 

The official start of the 2022-2023 basketball season is finally upon us, and the Coffeyville CC Red Ravens women's team have sky high expectations heading into tonight's season opener with Ottawa JV.

 

The Red Ravens are led by Tony Turner, who enters his fourth season at the helm of the program. The team has experienced consistent success in Coach Turner's regime, having a record of 19-11 a season ago, including 10-6 at home.

 

This season presents new challenges, however, with only two returning players averaging more than 3 points per game from last season (#12 Kennady Roach, #42 Cheyenne Banks). There is good size and speed on this roster, with eight players listed at least 5'9".

 

CCC will look to improve their shooting in the new season, after struggling to a 39% clip the previous campaign. A new opportunity to build a new legacy starts at 5:30 tonight in the season opener.

Colbert's Five TD Night Advances the Nado to Round Two

 

Field Kindley advances to the second round of the playoffs with a 40-30 win over El Dorado. After a scoreless first quarter, the Wildcats would strike first capitalizing on a short field after a Nado fumble taking an 8-0 lead on a Gannon White touchdown run. The Nado answered right back in three plays punctuated by a 33-yard touchdown run by Jeremy Colbert, his first of five on the night. Coffeyville would strike again before halftime on a 37-yard touchdown run by Colbert taking the 14-8 lead into halftime.

 

El Dorado opened the second half by recovering their onside kick and need one play by QB White, who took it 50 yards for the touchdown and the 16-14 lead in the third quarter. Nado QB Axel Erne and the offense would answer right back as Erne hit Colbert on a 24-yard touchdown pass taking the lead back for Coffeyville 20-14. After an El Dorado fumble, Colbert would find the endzone for the fourth time on a 38-yard touchdown run. The Nado found the endzone one more time before the end of the third on a four-yard touchdown run by Colber, his fifth touchdown of the night.

 

El Dorado would keep it close in the fourth cutting the lead to a two-possession game but the Nado had the answer holding on to their lead and advancing to the next round. Both teams had great games on the ground. Coffeyville had 342 yards rushing on 36 carries with five rushing touchdowns. Colbert run 19 times for 191 yards, Josh Shobe had 7 carries for 64 yards and a 17-yard touchdown and Lamarcus Allen had 7 carries for 68 yards. El Dorado had 415 yards rushing on 61 carries and four rushing touchdowns. The Wildcats were led by their QB, White, who had 18 carries for 146 yards and three rushing touchdowns. Coffeyville will head on the road to take on Towanda-Circle in round two.

Preview: Fredonia battles Council Grove in State Playoffs

The Fredonia regular season was strong enough to ensure a trip to the postseason, and the Yellow Jackets will make the trip to Council Grove and battle the Braves on Friday night. Fredonia comes in with a 4-4 record, and Council Grove has a 6=2 record.

 

The Yellow Jackets were able to snap a three game losing skid in Week 8, defeating Eureka 16-8 on the road. Although a win was most important, Fredonia coach Marc Savty knows his team must find ways to finish drives and not leave points on the field if they wish to have playoff success.

 

Council Grove is coming off of a tough loss in Week 8, but Savty knows this team has dynamic weapons and are well coached. The Braves' defense is the biggest strength, allowing 6 points or fewer in five games this season, including four shutouts.

 

Friday's game is at 7pm in Council Grove, and a recap will be posted to the website following the game.

Preview: Independence squares off with Towanda Circle in Playoffs

Week 9 of the high school football season brings us the first round of the playoffs in SE Kansas, and the Independence Bulldogs draw a matchup with the Towanda Circle Thunderbirds on Friday night. The Bulldogs enter with a record of 1-7, and the Thunderbirds enter with a record of 6-2.

 

The game results do not tell the full story of the last few weeks for Independence. The offense has been much more consistent, tallying 23 and 33 points in their prior two games, respectively. The run game for Indy has also been much more of a consistent presence since the midway point of the season.

 

The x-factor will be if the defense of Independence can the key 3rd down stops and turnovers they've been looking for all season. The offense has stabilized, and if the defense can give the offense extra possessions, it may just be enough to think upset Friday night.

 

Towanda Circle brings a high-powered offense that scores early and often, hanging 35+ on each of their previous four opponents. The Thunderbirds are led by upperclassmen on both sides of the ball, with senior QB Cooper Chadwell and senior WR Ty Smith connecting for 10 touchdowns on offense, and junior Cannon Mccormack leading in tackles and sacks on defense.

 

Friday's game will be at 7pm in Towanda, and a recap will be posted on the website following the game.

 

 

CCC Rolls Past GCI

 

Coffeyville Community College picks up the shutout victory over Georgia Christian Institute 59-0.

 

GCI fought the wind in the first quarter setting up good field position for CCC and they were able to capitalize scoring on their first four possessions leading 24-0 early in the second quarter. Red Ravens QB Isaiah Velez's day would end early after those first four scores finishing 6 for 8 with 39 yards and a passing touchdown. CCC used the wind to their advantage in the second quarter recovering back-to-back kickoffs after scoring touchdowns. The Red Ravens would lead 45-0 at the half holding GCI to -43 yards of offense in the first half.

 

With the big lead, the third and fourth quarters would be shortened to ten minutes each instead of the normal fifteen. CCC added two more scores in the second half. Ozzario Smith led the way on the ground for CCC with 103 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 11 carries. Coffeyville would hold the Knights to -23 yards of total offense for the game.

Cherryvale controls Neodesha in Week 8 GOTW

Few things feel better than entering the postseason playing your best football of the season, and that's exactly the case for the Cherryvale Chargers, after shutting out rival Neodesha 38-0 on senior night.

 

The defense was tested early, with Neodesha having four first-quarter possessions starting across the 50 yard line, courtesy of a pair of onside kicks, an interception, and a 4th-down stand. But the Charger defensive line created penetration in the backfield all night, and completely neutralized the option offense of Neodesha.

 

The star of the night for the Chargers was junior utility player Stetson Schafer, who lined up as a receiver, tight end, linebacker, safety, and punter throughout the night. Schafer finished with a pair of interceptions, a long 68 yard TD catch, and outstanding athletic displays all evening long.

 

The Chargers run game also showed up in a big way, led by senior Trevin Elam. As the night went on, Elam continuously found ways to fall forward and drive his legs, turning plays that appeared to have no hope into consistent six and seven yard gains.

 

Neodesha's season comes to an end after failing to qualify for postseason play, while the Cherryvale Chargers earn the 2-seed in the District 1 portion of the bracket, and will host the Humboldt Cubs in the first round of the playoffs on Friday night. Humboldt defeated Cherryvale 46-0 in the two teams' earlier matchup this season.

Coffeyville Falls in Last Game of Season

 

Fort Scott pulls off the upset in double overtime beating Field Kindley 50-44.  

 

The Nado started strong on their first drive of the game taking an early 8-0 lead.  Fort Scott answered right back tying the game up at 8-8 and then forcing a Nado fumble to take a 14-8 lead.  After giving up 14 unanswered the Nado offense woke up a bit and would answer back with 22 unanswered points of their own.  Field Kindley headed into halftime up 30-14.

 

Things would slow down for Coffeyville offensively in the second half as they did not score a second-half offensive touchdown.  Sophomore Running Back Lamarcus Allen was coming off a 44-carry game and was already up to 44 carries in the third quarter.  After Fort Scott tied it up a 30, the Nado returned an interception for a touchdown to retake the lead 36-30.  With 1:30 left in the game, the Tigers drove down the field to tie it up with 22 seconds left and into overtime we headed.

 

Both teams scored touchdowns and 2-point conversions in the first OT. Fort Scott scored first in the second OT but failed the conversion.  Coffeyville only needed a touchdown and the conversion to win.  The Tigers would force a fumble on second and goal from the four to walk away with the upset.  

 

With the loss, the Nado fall to the sixth seed on the west side of the 4A bracket and will face El Dorado in the first round of the playoffs on Friday.  

Caney Rams Riverton In Regular Season Finale

A slow game offensively in the first half for the Caney Valley Bull Pups turned into a blowout, as the Bull Pups blanked the Riverton Rams 36-0 in the regular season finale for both teams. The only score for Caney in the first half came on their first drive, as they marched down the field through the rushing of Jackson Griffin and Aston King. Caney's defense held the Riverton offense to less than 10 yards rushing in the first half; Caney lead 8-0 at the half. The second half produced more of the same, with consistent rushing by Griffin and King; the duo ended up with over 300 yards rushing for the fourth time this season. Ben Matthews, Garrett Watson, and Tanner Hobson also joined in on the rushing attack, Matthews and Hobson added rushing TD's, while the defense pitched the shutout. Caney finishes the regular season 6-2, and 1-0 in the Tri Valley. Caney starts the playoffs with a week three rematch, taking on Eureka Friday night at Caney Memorial Stadium. 

Preview: Caney Bullpups head to Riverton

The Caney Valley Bullpups put a bow on a very successful 2022 regular season tonight on the road against the Riverton Rams. The Bullpups are a very respectable 5-2 on the season, while Riverton has struggled to a 1-6 record.

 

Although the records seem to favor the Bullpups, Caney Valley head coach Criss Davis is still taking no chances in this matchup, and highlights the talent the Rams have at key positions.

 

The Caney Valley defense has given up 12 points or less in four different games this season, and with the Rams averaging just 13 PPG offensively, that figures to be a key storyline to follow.

 

Tonight's game, along with all Caney Valley Bullpups action, can be heard on KGGF 104.1 FM.

 

 

Preview: Field Kindley takes on Fort Scott in Week 8

There is hard-nosed, physical football on the menu for the Field Kindley Golden Tornado in Week 8, as they travel to face the Fort Scott Tigers tonight. The Nado come in at 5-2, while the Tigers are 1-6 on the season.

 

Both teams implement a run-first offensive scheme that is sure to take center stage in this matchup. The Nado have dealt with numerous injuries at the running back position this season, but sophomore LaMarcus Allen stepped up to the plate a week ago, running for 204 yards and 3 TDs on 44 carries. He explains how he prepared for his opportunity to contribute for Field Kindley.

 

The Fort Scott offense has struggled mightily all season long scoring points, tallying more than 10 in a game just once on the year. The Tigers defense will look to slow down the rushing attack of the Nado to keep the offense close enough to potentially play spoiler.

 

Tonight's game, along with all Field Kindley games, can be heard on KQQF 98.9 FM

Preview: Cherryvale Chargers battle rival Neodesha Blue Streaks in Week 8 GOTW

Our Week 8 edition of the High School Football Game of the Week brings us to Neodesha as the Blue Streaks welcome the rival Cherryvale Chargers to hostile territory for bragging rights on the last Friday night of the regular season.

 

Cherryvale has encountered a roller coaster regular season en route to a 4-3 record heading into Friday's matchup, while the Blue Streaks have struggled to get going offensively in a frustrating 2-5 campaign.

 

However, Chargers head coach Daniel Vaughn knows that during a rivalry week, all records are thrown out the window. 

 

Neodesha will hope that senior linebacker Chad Babcock will be able to lead the Blue Streaks defense to their best performance of the season and upset the Chargers on senior night.

 

Game coverage of the High School Football Game of the Week can be heard at 6:50 p.m. on the mighty 690, KGGF AM.

Preview: Independence battles El Dorado

The Independence Bulldogs take the field for the final time in the 2022 regular season Friday night and will battle the 1-6 El Dorado Wildcats. 

 

Both teams have struggled on the defensive side of the ball this season, with Independence surrendering 30+ points in five of their seven ballgames, and El Dorado giving up 37 PPG to their opponents.

 

The intriguing storyline with this contest is which of the two struggling defenses will make enough plays to give their respective team the boost needed to end the season with a win.

 

A recap of the battle between the Bulldogs and Wildcats will be posted to the website following the conclusion of the game.

CCC Volleyball Falls to #3 Cowley

The Coffeyville Red Ravens wrapped up their 2022 regular season home slate with a Wednesday evening matchup with the #3 Cowley CC Tigers. The Red Ravens were playing from behind most of the night, and Cowley was able to snap CCC’s 8 match winning streak with a straight sets win 25-15, 25-16, 25-16.

 

It was Pink Out night for the Red Raven supporters, and the crowd delivered the energy and atmosphere needed for an upset. But, according to head coach Deardin Kelley, the Tigers brought a speed element that hasn't matched up with Coffeyville yet this season.

 

Coach Kelley was proud of the team’s will to hang with a top tier program on this night, and proud of the team’s growth over the course of the season as a whole. 

 

 

The Red Ravens will travel on the road for their last two regular season matches, facing Metropolitan CC on Friday evening, before wrapping up the regular season against Fort Scott on Wednesday.
