Field Kindley Stuns Nowata

 

The Griff Walker era got off to a huge start as the Golden Nado beat Nowata in the first round of the 2021 Ty Hewitt Memorial Tournament.

 

Coffeyville got out to a 15-10 at the end of the first quarter and still held a tight 24-20 lead at halftime. After allowing Nowata to get within one at 26-25, Coffeyville went to work by going on a 13-0 run to make the score 39-25 punctuated by Caden Herring.

 

Nowata would then go on a 13-0 run of their own that covered the last part of the third quarter and the first minute of the 4th quarter to tie it at 40. The 4th quarter moved along and neither team was able to shake the other but JazavierLogan was able to shut the door on Nowata.

 

Coffeyville will return to action Thursday at 8:30 pm to square off against the winner of the Oklahoma Union – Fairland game tonight at 8:30 pm. You will be able to listen to Thursday's game on Sonshine 98.9 KQQF.

Lady Nado Drop Opener

 

Field Kindley was unable to shake off a slow start as they dropped a 55-28 decision to Oklahoma Union in the first round of the 2021 Ty Hewitt Memorial Tournament.

 

Both the Lady Nado and Lady Cougars got off to a slow start as neither team netted a basket nearly halfway through the first quarter. After two free throws from the Lady Nado to tie the game at 2 apiece, Oklahoma Union went on a 7-0 run to push their lead to 9-2 and the closest the Lady Nado would get the rest of the night was at the end of the first quarter where they trailed 11-4. Field Kindley struggled from the free-throw line going only 7-21 from the charity stripe.

 

The Lady Nado were led in scoring by Olivia Ransom who started her first varsity game with 7 points while Makayla Strickland added 6 points and Taiylor Caron chipped in 5.

 

The Lady Nado start the season at 0-1 and will move to the consolation side of the tournament bracket where they will play Chelsea, who dropped a 61-34 decision to Mannford earlier in the evening, at 4 pm Friday. You can listen to the game on Sonshine 98.9 KQQF.

Coffeyville Football Comes Up Short in Bowl Game

 

The Coffeyville Red Ravens came up short in its bowl game on Saturday, losing 28-7 to the Tyler Apaches.

 

Throughout the game, Coffeyville found it hard to move the football. The Raven offense could only gather 180 total yards, compared to Tyler's 390. The lone touchdown came in the second quarter, a 12-yard pass from quarterback Jakson Thomson to tight end Andrew Schnackenberg that capped off a 57-yard drive. The latter was named Coffeyville's MVP for the game.

 

Coffeyville ends its season at 6-3 and as the regular season Jayhawk Conference champions.

 

 

Coffeyville Splits with Barton

 

The Coffeyville men and women split against Barton Saturday, the women victorious at 78-72 and the men defeated at 74-48.

 

Both offenses were clicking in the women's game, with the two teams deadlocked for the first 14 minutes of game time. However, the Cougars would eventually go on a 13-0 run, building an 11-point lead, meaning that Coffeyville once again needed to find their way back from behind. A small Coffeyville counter-run before the break led to just a 7-point deficit before halftime at 37-30.

 

Despite briefly trailing by double digits in the second half, things went Coffeyville's way in the second half. Passes inside that had been previously unavailable opened up, and assists leader Dariauna Carter found it much easier to score herself in this particular contest. After cutting the lead to just 2 points by the end of the third quarter, Coffeyville would finally take back the lead with just under 6 minutes to play on a Nakia Cullom jump shot. Although Barton continued to threaten, never letting the Ravens get comfortable with their lead, consistent free throw shooting left the game just out of reach. The clock eventually expired, giving Coffeyville the win at 78-72.

 

Carter led all scorers with 18, a season-high for her. She was joined in double digits by Cullom (13), Faith Simpson (11) and Cheyenne Banks (11). The Raven women are now 10-2 on the season and 4-2 in Jayhawk Conference play.

 

------

 

The men's game was never in any doubt, and featured just one lead change at 3-2. The Red Raven men put up their worst shooting half of the season in the first, going just 4-32 from the field for a percentage of 12.5%. Meanwhile, the Barton offense seemed to be able to hit shots on command, going 62.1% from the field and 50% from behind the three-point line. That combined led to a staggering 32-point deficit at the half, 46-14.

 

Out of the break, Coffeyville found it much easier to score, and even won the final 20 minutes at 34-28, but a 32-point comeback was not in the cards, as the Raven men dropped their third straight.

 

Jordan Williams led all Red Ravens with 13 points off of the bench, all of which came in the second half. Love Bettis also reached double figures with 11. The Raven men are now 5-6 and 2-3 in conference play.

 

Both teams will be back home on Wednesday, as the Ravens play host to the Hutchinson Blue Dragons. Pregame will start at 5:00 PM, with tipoff at 5:30 on US98.1, KUSN.

Fredonia Wins Thriller over Neodesha

 

Another exciting chapter was added to the Wilson County rivalry as the Fredonia Yellowjackets beat Neodesha Blue Streaks 63-56 in overtime Friday night.

 

Neodesha started off the game with a 9-0 run that was followed up by a 10-2 run for Fredonia and the team would trade score until Bryson Harvey buried a 3-pointer from the right corner to make it 13 all at the end of the first.

 

Both teams had trouble finding their footing in the second quarter but Neodesha looked like they were going to end the quarter with a six-point lead until Fredonia's Zach Ramsey wowed the entire gym.

 

The teams would trade blows in the 2nd half with neither team getting more than a 3-point lead at any point and nothing was solved after 32 minutes as the score was deadlocked at 54. In the overtime, period Fredonia outscored Neodesha 9-2 on the strength of solid free throw shooting to earn the win.

 

Fredonia was led by Zach Ramsey who had 17 points followed by Jermiah Couch with 14 points. Neodesha was paced by Maddux Johnson who had a game-high 19 points with Tristan Arnold adding 15 points from the bench.

 

Fredonia hosts Douglass Tuesday at home while Neodesha will participate in the Wildcat Classic beginning on Monday at Yates Center.

West Elk Wins Two Over Oswego to Begin Season

 

The West Elk Patriots opened up their basketball season in style, taking both the girls (38-23) and boys (64-22) contests against Oswego in our first Game of the Week on Friday.

 

West Elk led the entirety of the boys game. Coming out of the gate, it was clear that the Patriots would attempt use their size advantage to dominate inside the paint. Seniors Garrett Toon and Wesley Young were an effective one-two combination, crashing the boards and finding many opportunities for second chance points. The Patriots led 16-0 after the first, 40-11 at the half, and 56-20 in the third quarter. Running clock would end the game a little early, with West Elk claiming its first victory with a final score of 64-22.

 

Meanwhile, in the preceding girls' game, the Patriots overcame a 10-7 first quarter and 17-15 halftime deficit to overcome the Indians, 38-23.

Coffeyville Drops Both to Butler

 

Neither Coffeyville team found its way into the win column Wednesday, as the women were defeated by Butler 82-51 and the men 61-52.

 

The Coffeyville women were looking to pick up the upset over a favored Butler team, ranked #7 in the latest NJCAA polls. However, the team found itself trailing for the vast  majority of the contest, and struggling to put the ball through the basket. Coffeyville shot 14-for-59 for just 23.7% from the field, a season low. The defense held out for awhile, limiting the Grizzlies offense to just 32 points in the first half, but a 29-9 third quarter blew the game wide open. That allowed Butler to coast the rest of the way, despite a much more solid fourth quarter effort from the Ravens.

 

Faith Simpson led all scorers with 19 on 5-of-11 shooting. She was the only Raven to reach double digits. Coffeyville is now 9-2 on the season and 4-2 in Jayhawk Conference play.

 

--------

 

The Raven men, meanwhile, have continued to battle injuries and sickness through the start of the 2021 campaign, but still looked to have a chance to defeat the 15th-ranked Grizzlies. With both teams struggling to get going offensively, and a lax whistle that only resulted in eight first half free throws, the Ravens led by a paltry score of 23-22 at the half. Unfortunately, that slim lead wouldn't last. After trading blows, and building their lead to 42-38 with only 8 minutes to go, Coffeyville would embark upon a long scoring drought. It proved to be costly, as Butler took over, and eventually pulled away, for the 9-point victory.

 

Noah Butler was the only Raven to reach double digits in the men's game, picking up 10. The men are now 5-5 on the season, 2-2 in conference play.

 

----

 

Both teams will look to gain back some momentum this Saturday, as they travel to Great Bend to take on the Barton Cougars. Pregame will start at 1:30 PM, with tipoff at 2 PM, on US98.1, KUSN.

Coffeyville Women Defeat Colby in Triple Overtime

 

The Coffeyville women's basketball team needed four quarters and three overtime periods, but still got the 82-78 win against Colby on Saturday.

 

The Ravens, as they have done a few times this season, fell behind early on. After being outscored 18-15 in the the first quarter, Coffeyville only put up 4 points in the second quarter, failing to make a single basket in the process despite solid shot selection. Trailing 32-19 at the half, another comeback was needed. It started out modest, with Coffeyville pulling back to within single-digits and trimming the Trojan lead to just 6 entering the final quarter, and finally tying things back up at 60 with just a minute to go. Neither team was able to convert its final attempt at ending things in regulation, sending Coffeyville to its second overtime game in a row.

 

The first two overtime periods came and went, with neither side able to get an advantage. However, foul trouble started to dog some of Colby's key players, while Coffeyville was able to mostly keep theirs spread out. With free throws again becoming more and more important, it was the Ravens who were finally able to pull away in the third overtime period. Nakia Cullom scored 8 of her 14 points in the decisive period, while Faith Simpson added several points from the free throw line. A Colby triple to trim the lead to 4 would make things interesting, but the Ravens ran out the rest of the clock for the 82-78 victory.

 

Simpson led the way in scoring, picking up 22 points and 13 rebounds for the double-double. Scott recorded a season high 21 points. The Raven women are now 9-1 on the season and 3-1 in conference play. A tough matchup awaits both the Raven men and women Wednesday, as they'll travel to El Dorado to take on the Butler Grizzlies. Pregame starts at 5 PM, with tip-off at 5:30 PM on US98.1, KUSN.

Ravens Split at Home Against Dodge City

 

It was a mixed bag in Coffeyville's return to Nellis Hall on Wednesday, as the women claimed a 60-58 overtime victory over Dodge City while the men dropped a 76-53 contest.

 

The Coffeyville women were fresh off of a 12-point loss to Garden City, but seemed to shake that off quickly. Despite a slow offensive start, the defense kept the game under wraps. Eventually, Coffeyville's shots started falling, and a 21-8 second quarter would give the Ravens a 27-16 halftime lead.

 

Unfortunately, it wouldn't be a runaway victory. Dodge City came out of the break with a 21-10 third quarter of their own, tying things back up for the final quarter. After going even in the fourth thanks to a couple of last minute Amiya Josey free throws, it would be overtime once again for a Red Ravens squad, tied up at 49.

 

Later in overtime, tied at 58, and with a chance for the final shot in overtime, Coffeyville's Faith Simpson was fouled to get to the line with just 3.4 seconds remaining. Both shots fell, and a last-gasp Dodge City heave wouldn't come close, giving the Ravens their eighth win of the season.

 

Simpson led all scorers with 17 points and 9 rebounds. Amiya Josey finished with 10 points and 7 rebounds. The Red Raven women shot 88% from the free throw line, while Dodge City shot just 47%. The team is now 8-1 on the season and 2-1 in Jayhawk Conference play.

 

-----

 

The men also faced a tough Dodge City team, and were doing it down several men. Sickness kept starters Dayshawn Wiley and Oluwatimisola ToluOgunokya out of Wednesday's games, and would-be starters Blaise Keita and AJ McBride are still out due to injury.

 

Things started slowly, with both teams unable to create open shots. However, Dodge City got things going for themselves, utilizing its bigger, more athletic players and forcing Coffeyville to guard inside. With just one player over 6'8" available for Wednesday's game, it was a tall task, and Coffeyville slowly fell behind.

 

Dodge City built a 13-point lead heading into the locker rooms, and while Coffeyville would fight for quite awhile into the second half, even cutting the lead back down to 9, the disadvantages were just too much, and the much healther team would eventually pull away and claim the 23-point win.

 

Coffeyville has lost three straight at home, and are now 5-4 on the season. They are 2-1 in Jayhawk Conference play.

 

-------

 

The Raven women will be alone for our next broadcast, as they play host to the Colby Trojans this Saturday. The Colby men have postponed both of their games this week due to health and safety protocols. Pregame will start at 1:30PM, with tip-off at 2 PM on US98.1, KUSN.

Coffeyville Basketball Splits at Garden City

 

It was split fortunes in Garden City, as the Coffeyville women suffered their first loss of the season 58-46 while the men won 106-104 in double overtime.

 

The Coffeyville women saw a solid defensive effort spoiled by massive struggles on offense. Shooting just 31 percent from the floor and committing 22 turnovers, the Ravens found themselves unable to executive their usual gameplan for much of the afternoon. Meanwhile, Garden City's Kealani Neves came quickly out of the gate, shooting lights out from 3-point range and creating a lead early on. Although Coffeyville wouldn't let the game get too far out of hand, the Broncbusters slowly expanded their advantage to 15 points before eventually settling for a 27-17 lead at the half.

 

Things wouldn't get much better in the third quarter. Garden City chewed up the clock and Coffeyville continued to play into the hands of the Broncbuster defense. Despite figuring things out for a solid fourth quarter in which the Ravens would outscore Garden City 19-13, the Ravens would still fall 58-46.

 

Coffeyville's Faith Simpson led all scorers with 18 points. The Red Raven women are 7-1 on the season and 1-1 in the Jayhawk Conference.

 

------

 

The men's game featured two teams looking to continue their success despite recent setbecks. Garden City was without its leading scorer due to suspension, while Coffeyville has been plagued by injuries. The teams were virtually even throughout regulation, although the Ravens were the quicker team out of the gate. Taking a 26-16 lead, Coffeyville would see that lead shrink to just two points by halftime, 45-43.

 

Things got interesting in the second half. Garden City at one point pulled ahead by 13 at 70-57, but a 17-4 run for Coffeyville tied things right back up. The lead never grew to more than a few points after that, but both teams being in the double bonus meant both teams had plenty of chances to add points at the free throw line. With neither team willing to miss from the line, Coffeyville went up 82-79 with under a minute to play in regulation. However, it was not a lead meant to hold as a Garden City 3-pointer sent the Ravens into their second overtime game in a row.

 

Free throws continued to be important in the extra periods, as the officials showed no signs of laying off the whistle. In total, 28 fouls were called in Saturday's game, leading to 72 shots taken from the charity stripe. The first overtime period game and went, with Garden City missing an opportunity to seal the game after a missed last-second shot. In the second overtime period, it was Coffeyville who ultimately got to the line last, as Dayshawn Wiley sank both to give the Ravens its 106-104 lead. A last-gasp, half-court shot for Garden City fell just short, and the Ravens emerged victorious for their second straight victory.

 

Wiley put up a season-high 30 points, leading all scorers. Love Bettis scored 20, while Deng Mayar and Jules Bikoy added 17 and 15 respectively. The Ravens are now 6-3 and 2-0 in the Jayhawk Conference.

 

Both teams will return home on Wednesday, playing host to the Dodge City Conquistadors. You can catch both games on US98.1, KUSN.

Coffeyville Basketball Sweeps Cowley On the Road

 

Coffeyville opened up Jayhawk Conference play in the best possible way Wednesday, the women earning a 69-62 victory over Cowley and the men following suit at 80-76.

 

The Red Raven women got off to a slow start, letting the Tigers pull out to an early 13-2 lead. Missed opportunities further allowed Cowley to hold onto its lead, but Coffeyville stayed within striking distance for the majority of the first half. Bouncing between low double-digits and just a few points, the Ravens took advantage of early Cowley foul trouble to pull itself close again and again. Coffeyville trailed at the half by 3 points, 32-29.

 

In the second half, the lead would never grow again to lengths seen in the first two quarters. Continuing upon its approach in the first half, Coffeyville kept looking inside, allowing players such as Faith Simpson and Nakia Cullom to take high-percentage shots and further make up for an off-night from outisde the arc. After getting back to within 1 by the end of the third quarter, the Ravens dominated the fourth quarter 21-13 to take the 7-point win back home.

 

Simpson led the Ravens with 19 points, while Cullom provided 18 off of the bench on 8-of-12 shooting. The Raven women have extended their winning streak to 7-0 and start out conference play at 1-0.

 

-----

 

The Red Raven men, much like the women before them, fell behind early on. The Tigers used a full court press to frustrate Coffeyville, and shot well from outside to create a large deficit. After falling behind 14-4, Coffeyville began its long climb back into the ballgame, chipping away with mid-range jumpers and second chance efforts. The team eventually earned its first lead at 25-24 following a deep Dayshawn Wiley three-pointer. By halftime, the Ravens had built their slim lead to 2 points at 35-33.

 

The two teams continued to trade the lead early in the second half, but Coffeyville eventually built a double-digit lead of its own at 57-47. Holding that lead proved to be difficult, however, and things evened out once again in the final few minutes. Leading 67-65 with 16 seconds to play, Deng Mayar had a chance to put the game out of reach with two free throws. However, he would sink only one of the two, allowing Cowley's Raishaun Brown to hit wild 3-pointer from the corner to force overtime.

 

Despite the setback, and the blown lead, Coffeyville proved themselves to have the tougher mental in the extra few minutes. A small lead once again emerged, allowing for slower play that chewed up time off the clock. Cowley would have chances to bring the game back to within one possession in overtime, but missed free throws en masse allowed the Ravens to eventually come away with the 4-point win.

 

Love Bettis led all scorers with 22, while Mayar and Noah Butler turned in efforts of 15 and 14 points respectively. The men are now 4-3 on the season and 1-0 in conference play.

 

Both teams will again be on the road Saturday, traveling to western Kansas to face Garden City. Both games can be heard on US98.1, KUSN. Pregame will start at 1:30 PM for a 2:00 PM tipoff.

Coffeyville Women Enter Top 25, Men Receive Votes in Latest Poll

 

A hot start has pushed the Coffeyville Red Raven women's basketball team into the NJCAA Top 25.

 

Coffeyville came in at #25 in the latest NJCAA poll, published Monday. The Ravens defeated Bethany JV and Connors State last week, both by double-digits. The 6-0 start also saw Coffeyville earn a win over then-ranked Eastern Oklahoma.

 

Meanwhile, the Coffeyville men fell out of the rankings after a 3-game losing skid, but are still receiving votes. Two of the Ravens' three losses have come NEO A&M, a ranked opponent. Southern Arkansas University Tech, the only other opponent to have bested the men this season, also defeated Independence last weekend.

 

Conference play starts this week, as the Ravens travel to Cowley on Wednesday and then Garden City on Saturday. All of this week's games can be heard on US98.1, KUSN.

Sedan Falls to Canton-Galva in State Sectionals

 

A great year for the Sedan Blue Devils football team has sadly come to an end after a 52-6 loss to Canton-Galva in the state sectionals.

 

The Blue Devils had no answer for the Eagles' offense, led by senior receiver and Kansas State commit Tyson Struber. The 2019 state champions only saw two of its drives end in a result other than a touchdown.

 

Meanwhile, the high-scoring Sedan offense that most teams in the area have come to know couldn't get themselves off the ground. The Blue Devils did pick up one touchdown, a 25-yard Brec Long run in the second quarter that briefly brought the score back to 16. However, it was all the team could muster, as the game was eventually decided in the third via mercy rule.

 

Sedan finishes its season at 10-1. Canton-Galva moves onto the semi-finals, where they will face defending state champion and district rival Little River. With the Blue Devils' loss, that will conclude our Game of the Week coverage for the football season. Up next is basketball season, starting next month. Stay tuned for further updates and broadcast schedules.

CCC Men Fall to SAU Tech

 

Despite the great second-half effort, the Red Ravens men fall short losing to Southern Arkansas University Tech 78-74. The Rockets opened the game on a 17-0 run as CCC looked lost both on offense and defense. SAU Tech used a 40% three-point shooting effort to maintain that lead heading into half 45-30. The Rockets Allen Taylor led the way with 15 first-half points.

 

Some great shooting in the second half by Dayshawn Wiley helped cut the lead all the way down to two points at one point, but CCC just couldn't finish the comeback. Wiley finished with 22 points on 7/11 shooting from beyond the arc. Love Bettis would add 19 points for CCC but struggled shooting going 7/19 from the floor and 6/12 from beyond the arc. The Red Ravens head into Region 6 play 3-3. They'll be on the road taking a familiar foe in a Championship rematch in Cowley.

Red Ravens Head into Conference Play 6-0

 

The Red Ravens women controlled the game from the opening tip as they never trailed winning 72-54. A strong 19-6 first quarter would set the tone early as the CCC women would force seven first-quarter turnovers for Connors State. The Cowgirls would try to cut into the lead in the second quarter but the full-court press continued to be too much forcing five more turnovers.

 

The Ravens would lead 36-22 at the half. Devin Wright would lead all scorers in the first half with 11 points. It was much of the same in the second for CCC as they controlled the game on both sides of the ball. Faith Simpson started to find her rhythm in the second half finishing with 16 points and 9 rebounds. Devin Wright added 13 alongside Simpson and off the bench, Nakia Cullom and Cheyenne Banks would add 13 and 8. Early foul trouble kept the Cowgirls leading scorer from going with 0 in the first half and only finishing with 7. Red Ravens are on the road as they start conference play on Wednesday in Cowley.

Sedan Faces Canton-Galva in 8-Man Quarterfinals

 

The Sedan Blue Devils are one step closer to the 8-Man DI finals, but the team now faces its toughest test yet in Friday's quarterfinals.

 

The Canton-Galva Eagles are 9-1 and hail from District 4, which also includes defending state champion Little River. The team is led by senior wide receiver and Kansas State commit Tyson Struber. He has recorded over 1100 receiving yards this season and holds career 8-Man records in both yards and touchdowns.

 

Sedan comes in at 10-0 and are the top seed of District 1. The Blue Devils have used a prolific offense to outscore its regular season opponents 484-60. The team overcame Flinthills in the first round before coming from behind to defeat Chase County last week.

 

Head coach Mick Holt said the Eagles are strong, athletic, and have no glaring weaknesses as a team.

 

The winner of this quarterfinal matchup moves on to the semifinals, where they'll take on the winner of Madison and Little River. Tonight's game can be heard on 690AM, KGGF. Pregame will start at 6:30 pm, with kickoff to follow at 7:00.
