Red Raven Men Victorious, Women Fall to Hutchinson


Coffeyville Community College split its double header with Hutchinson on Wednesday, with the men victorious at 88-68 but with the women falling short at 70-63.


The women's contest was, as always, up first, and at first seemed the Red Ravens would cruise to an easy upset victory over the 12th-ranked Blue Dragons. Coffeyville outscored Hutchinson 20-7 in the first quarter and would head into the locker rooms leading by 16. They would extend that lead to as many as 21 points halfway through the third, but the game would be thrown on its side in a heartbeat. A massive Hutchinson run would take the wind out of the Coffeyville sails, and the Blue Dragons would take their first lead midway through the fourth. Although Coffeyville fought to the end, foul trouble ultimately spelled doom for the team as they fell 70-63. Faith Simpson led all scorers on the night with 25 points. Dariauna Carter joined her in double-digits range with 15 points. The women now sit at 1-1 on the season, and 0-1 in Jayhawk Conference play.


After the women's game, the men would take to the court, and much like their counterparts, it would be an early lead for the Red Ravens. Five different Coffeyville players would find paydirt from the three-point line before Tylor Perry became the first to hit a second attempt. The team would lead Hutchinson by as much as 12 in the first half, but a small run just before halftime made it just a 6-point game. Coffeyville would come out of the half with just as much fire as they had at the start of the game, but despite leading 56-44 at one point, Hutchinson would storm back to within 1 at 56-55. This time, though, Coffeyville would not crumble, with the team outscoring Hutchinson 32-13 over the last 10 minutes of the contest, including this four-point play from Perry. Larry White led all Red Ravens scorers with 18 points, the third different leading scorer Coffeyville has had this season. The men now sit at 3-0, and 1-0 in the conference.


With Hutchinson now in the past, both teams will return to Nellis Hall this Saturday for a meeting with Pratt Community College. Men's head coach Jay Herkelman said the Beavers are a mystery this season.


The women's contest will kick off Saturday's affairs, starting at 2 pm, and the men will follow. As always, you can catch all the action on US98.1, KUSN.
