CCC's Upset Bid of Hutch Falls Short

 

Coffeyville Community College falls short in their upset bid over Hutchinson losing 14-9.

 

The Red Ravens made a change out quarterback for their matchup with the #2 Blue Dragons as JR Martin got his first start of the season. Despite the change at QB, the offensive struggles continued with CCC not scoring an offensive touchdown in now two straight games. Martin was also benched in the third quarter for Isaiah Velez, who had started the previous three games.

 

The Red Raven defense continues to look good holding a Hutch offense that averaged 47 points a game to just 14, forcing and recovering four fumbles and scoring a touchdown on one of those fumbles. The loss puts the Red Ravens at 2-2 on the season and 2-2 in Jayhawk Conference play. CCC heads on the road to take on Ellsworth.  

Nado Ground Game too Much for Indy

 

Field Kindley improves to 4-0 with a 42-13 win over rival Independence on Homecoming Night.

 

The Bulldogs would strike first and take a 6-0 lead on a Camdon Julian touchdown pass. Indy had some tricks up their sleeve and would follow the touchdown with an onside kick that they recovered. The Nado defense would step up, intercepting Julian and giving the offense good starting field position. Coffeyville struggled to find any offensive rhythm early in the game until backup running back Lamarcus Allen would capitalize on his first carries of the season scoring on 4th and 2 from the five-yard line. After another Nado interception, Allen would score his second touchdown of the season and give Coffeyville the 16-6 lead. FKHS would add one more touchdown in the first half with a halftime lead of 24-6.

 

It was all Jeremy Colbert to start the second half for Coffeyville as he had all fifty-five yards on the opening touchdown drive. The Bulldogs would respond on their first drive of the second half stopping the 30 unanswered points by Coffeyville and cutting the lead to 30-13. Colbert would add two more touchdowns for Coffeyville putting an end to Indy's comeback hopes. The Nado didn't attempt a pass on the night having over 350 yards rushing. Colbert finished with 192 yards and four touchdowns. Allen added over 100 yards on the ground himself with two touchdowns. Coffeyville travels to Wamego next week in a battle of unbeaten teams.   

Caney Valley Defeats Cherryvale in Tri Valley League Action

Caney Valley's ground attack was too much to handle, as the Bull Pups improved to three and one on the season by defeating the Chargers 54 - 20 in Tri Valley football action Thursday night. 
 

Cherryvale started strong, as their first drive of 58 yards ended in a touchdown. With the two point conversion, they quickly took an 8-0 lead. For the rest of the first half, it was all Caney, with the one-two running combo of Jackson Griffin and Aston King providing the offense. Quarterback Garrett Watson also got into the end zone with a rushing touchdown. 
 

The second half saw the Chargers special teams unit try and spark their team, as they recovered the on-side kick to start the half, and it did, temporarily. Once again, the Caney running game took control, with the Bull Pup defense holding up until late in the game. 
 

Jackson Griffin ended up rushing 15 times for 162 yards, with three CVTD's; Astin King rushed twelve times for 82 yards and a TD. Quarterback Garrett Watson only had to pass the ball once; it was complete to Gavin Stimpson. 
 

Caney Valley improved to 3 - 0 at home; they'll travel to Neodesha for week five action Friday, October 30th. 
 

 

Colbert Rushes for Over 200 as Nado Beat Columbus

 

Field Kindley picks up their third win of the season to stay undefeated beating Columbus 34-19.

 

After five consecutive run plays to start the game, the Nado offense and Axel Ernie would catch the defense off guard connecting with Amir Luten on a 47-yard catch and run touchdown. Coffeyville would extend their lead on Jeremy Colbert's first touchdown of the game for a 12-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. Columbus would trim the lead to 5 as Titans QB Brett Hamilton connected with Landin Midgett for the score. The Nado would add another score to extend the lead to 20-7 heading into the half.

 

Ke'Shawn Hayes got the scoring started in the second half with a 57-yard touchdown run on a jet sweep from the WR position. The Titans cut the lead to 13 at 26-13 after a pick-six. In the 4th quarter, Coffeyville forced the turnover on downs and took over at the Columbus 29-yard line. Colbert would punctuate his night with his third rushing TD of the game. Coffeyville runs for over 300 yards as a team, with over 200 coming from Colbert on 27 carries. Homecoming next week for the Nado as they take on rival Independence.  

Caney Falls to Humboldt

The Caney Valley Bullpups fell to the Humboldt Cubs Friday night.  Playing on the road the Bullpups lost 24 – 0 to the Cubs.

The final score did not tell the real story however as Caney actually played well on both sides of the ball just a couple of big plays by Humboldt made the difference.  In the second quarter the first score of the game came when a Humboldt defender broke through the line and picked off a pitch by the Caney quarterback and ran it into the endzone.

Caney is now 1 - 1 on the season and heads back out on the road next Friday night when they play Eureka.  You can hear that game and all Bullpup games on KGGF 104.1FM.     

Nado Need Overtime to Beat Mulvane

 

Field Kindley needed more than four quarters to get their first win of the season against Mulvane winning 8-0.  

 

The game was scoreless through regulation as both defenses came to play in this week one matchup.  The Nado forced six Mulvane turnovers and Mulvane turned Coffeyville over five times.  Penalties hurt both teams erasing big plays for Mulvane and a touchdown for FKHS.  With both teams held scoreless through four quarters the game went into overtime.  Coffeyville got the ball to start OT and with four straight runs by Aaron Tunstall they found the endzone for the first time.  The defense came to play in OT as well for the Nado as Dede Shobe sacked Mulvane's QB to force a third and fifteen and after a half two more stops the Nado came away victorious.

 

Tunstall finished the game with 19 carries and 130 yards rushing.  Coffeyville heads on the road next week to face Winfield.  

Red Ravens Start Season with Victory

 

Coffeyville Community College football starts the season 1-0 with a 37-0 victory over Highland.

 

It was the Red Ravens' special teams that got on the board first with a blocked punt and a safety. With just over two minutes left in the first quarter, CCC scored their first touchdown of the season. QB Isaiah Velez would find Mario Sanchez in the corner of the endzone extending the lead to 9-0. Velez would strike again early in the second this time on the ground and then added another through the air right before halftime for a CCC lead of 23-0.

 

It stayed all Red Ravens in the second half as Velez would throw for his third touchdown of the night. RB Jacquez Barksdale would add one on the ground for the final of 37-0. Velez, in his Red Ravens debut, was 24-34, with 289 yards and four total touchdowns. Joseph Young had 5 catches for 98 yards and a touchdown. The Red Ravens' defense held Highland to just 130 yards of total offense in the shutout. CCC is on the road this Saturday taking on Dodge City.

NFL Punter Hosts Camp for Chetopa Football

 

An NFL rookie hosts a football camp in Chetopa. Miami Dolphins Punter Tommy Heatherly says it has been quite the journey from Grove, OK to NEO to FIU and now the Dolphins.

Heatherly says he wants to not only teach high school athletes about punting and kicking but also how it can relate to life.  Dolphins rookies report to training camp on July 19th. Heatherly will compete for the starting job throughout camp and the preseason. If he doesn't make the 53-man roster there is still a chance for him to end up on the practice squad.

KSHSAA Schools Approve Private School Multiplier

 

Member schools of the Kansas State High School Activities Assocation voted to approve new rules that add a multiplier to private schools for classification purposes.

 

Private schools have won a disproportionate amount of state championships in recent years. The multiplier would seek to "even out" the playing field by accounting for geographic population, socio-economic population, and a "championship factor."

 

Schools from Class 1A (74-43), 2A (43-21), 3A (46-18), and 4A (30-6) voted in favor of the change. Classes 5A (17-19) and 6A (6-30) voted against the new rules, meaning the total vote was 216-139 in favor of the multiplier.

 

The measure will now be sent to the Kansas State Board of Education. If it is approved there, the state legislature will need to propose, and then enact, a bill making the change.

Ravens Drop Game One of Round One

 

Coffeyville will need to win two games in a row if it wants to keep its season alive, following a 13-2 loss to Butler on Wednesday.

 

Yesterday's game was the first of a BO3 series, also the first round of the Region VI playoffs. Although Coffeyville lead 2-1 after 3 innings, the wheels seemed to come off in the 5th and 6th innings, when Butler would score 12 of their 13 runs. Starter Chat Hayes, who had given up just the 1 run to that point, was pulled after 5 innings of work, giving up 5 runs total. Relievers Alex Galvez, Jayden Quarles and Korey Aytes could do little to stop the bleeding, giving up the other 8 runs that Butler would need to force a run rule by the end of the 7th.

 

The Ravens remain in El Dorado for the next game in the series, but will need to win this one and a potential third game on Friday if it wants to keep playing. The winner of this series moves on to Manhattan, Kansas for the Region VI Championships.

Nado Baseball Sweeps Baxter Springs

 

The Field Kindley junior varsity and varsity baseball teams complete the sweep of Baxter Springs.
The varsity team took the lead in the 6th and held on for the 2-1 victory and the JV walked off with a 6-5 victory. The pitching was strong on both sides, with the Nado's Greg Frazier striking out two and Baxter Springs pitchers striking out nine. Baxter Springs got on the board first scoring one in the second before the Nado tied things in the fifth inning.
Axel Erne gave the Nado the go ahead run in the bottom of the 6th. Joseph Hernandez led the Nado going two for three on the afternoon. Strong defense helped the Nado hold the Lions to just one run as they committed no errors. Alex DeAnda hit the walk off for the JV with a single to left field.

Ravens Baseball Ends Regular Season with Split at Fort Scott

 

Coffeyville baseball will hit the road for its first round matchup in the upcoming Region VI playoffs.

 

The Red Ravens split its season-ending series with the Fort Scott Greyhounds, dropping the first two games but turning things around and winning the final two.

 

All four games were played in Fort Scott due to field conditions at Walter Johnson Park. To secure a home playoff series, the Ravens needed to win at least three of those four. Coffeyville had put itself in position to at least give itself a chance to do so, carrying leads into the later innings during both games Friday. Unfortunately, a offensively-focused Greyhounds team was able to score runs in bunches, securing come-from-behind victories at 9-5 and 6-5.

 

Saturday, however, was a different story. The Ravens utilized great starting efforts from Christopher Spry and Kinson Michel to hold back a team that entered the weekend batting .360, giving up just 6 runs across both games. Meanwhile, the Coffeyville offense had just enough moments of its own to sneak by. Both games ended in favor of the Ravens, 3-1 and 9-5.

 

Although Coffeyville turned things around over the weekend, they'll still have to travel for the first round of the Region VI playoffs. As the 5-seed in the Jayhawk East, the team will be traveling to El Dorado, KS to take on Butler, the 4-seed in the Jayhawk West. The two teams will play a Best of 3 series, comprised of a single, 9-inning game on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of this week. The winners of the first round will travel to Manhattan for the Region VI Championships.

The game will not be made up. Coffeyville will wrap up its regular season with double-headers on Thursday and Saturday against the Fort Scott Greyhounds.

Ravens Take Two Back From Neosho

 

The Coffeyville Red Ravens got their revenge Saturday, taking two games back from Neosho County on the road with finals scores of 8-5 and 11-4.

 

The first game was, for the most part, a back-and-forth affair. For every couple runs that Coffeyville managed to put across, Neosho were able to do the same the next inning. A small 2-0 lead in the 2nd was matched by a 2-run homerun in the 3rd. A 3-run homerun for Coffeyville's AJ Craft in the 4th was matched by 3 more Panther runs in the 5th. Fortunately, the Ravens were able to get the last laugh. Tied at 5 in the 6th inning, Coffeyville found RBIs on three consecutive at-bats; a single for Drew Cates, a single for Austin Gonzales, and finally, a groundout for Jackson Mannix added 3 runs. Ravens starter Christopher Spry went the distance again, shutting down Neosho in the bottom of the 7th to take the first game of the doubleheader.

 

Coffeyville bats continued to shine in the second game. Facing Neosho starter Dax Sharp, the Ravens batted around en route to rattling off 6 runs in the 2nd inning. After a scoreless 3rd and 4th, Coffeyville would add another 2 runs on a double by second baseman Quentin Platt. He'd finish with 4 total RBIs in the game, going 3-5 at the plate. Defensively, the Panthers found themselves unable to take advantage of their baserunners, a big difference from the rest of the series. Coffeyville starter Marcos Lopez worked himself out of several jams, keeping Neosho off the board and keeping the lead rather large. The Ravens added 3 more runs in the game's final few innings, giving Coffeyville an 11-4 victory and a the split of the series.

 

Coffeyville improves its record to 29-20, 13-15 in Jayhawk Conference play. They'll wrap up the regular season this week, with a trip to El Dorado (weather permitting) on Tuesday, a trip to Fort Scott on Thursday, then a home matchup on Saturday against that same Fort Scott team.

 

 

Coffeyville Drops Two to Neosho

 

The Coffeyville Red Ravens dropped its first two games against the Neosho County Panthers on Thursday, losing 9-4 in the first game and then 9-7 in the second.

 

The Ravens fell behind early in the first game and were never really able to recover. Starter Chat Hayes gave up 4 runs in just the first inning, and although Coffeyville was able to get 2 runs in the 3rd and 5th innings, Neosho was there to answer each time in the very next half inning. The Panthers scored the game's final three runs in the 6th and 7th innings to run away with the 9-4 victory.

 

Coffeyville put up more of a fight in the second contest of the afternoon, but still were forced to play catch up for a majority of the game. After falling behind 3-0, the Ravens scored 3 runs right back to start up a whole new ballgame by the top of the 5th. However, Neosho would blow the game open again with a 3-run homerun in the 6th, and added 3 more in the 7th on a bases-clearing double. Coffeyville got hits here and there, and even put themselves in a situation with the go-ahead run on base in the top of the 7th, but a double-play ended any hope of a comeback as they fell 9-7.

 

Coffeyville drops to 27-20 on the year. They'll get another chance at Neosho this Saturday, playing in Chanute.
