CCC Suffers First Defeat of the Season


The Coffeyville Red Ravens took its first loss of the fall football season Saturday, dropping a tough 39-11 defeat against Garden City.


The Broncbusters were on Coffeyville early, recording two touchdowns in the first 10 minutes of the game. Coffeyville would add 2 points on a blocked PAT, and another 2 points on a safety following an excellent George Eberle punt, but that would be it for the Ravens scoring effort in the first half. Another three Garden City touchdowns would follow, and Coffeyville found itself trailing for the first time at halftime this season at 32-4.


Unfortunately, things didn't really get better for Coffeyville in the second half. Running back William Knight slashed through the defense on a run up the middle for 37 yards and a 35-point lead. A 51-yard touchdown pass from backup quarterback Will Bohn to Isaiah Taylor in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter gave the Ravens faithful some reason to cheer, but by then, it was far little too late. The Ravens would eventually fall 39-11.


The Ravens were dominated on both sides of the ball, and the statline showed it. Coffeyville could only muster 252 total yards of offense, and only 63 on the ground. Bohn was the team's leading rusher with 39 yards, while the normally strong triple threat of Star Thomas, Dorian Lewis and Torrance Farmer only accounted for 37 yards together. Jakson Thomson was 12-33 through the air for 96 yards. Bohn was 4-10 for 93 yards and the one touchdown.


Coffeyville (5-1) will be back in action on Halloween night, taking on Montgomery County rival Independence. The Pirates (7-0) were on a bye last week. Sunday's game can be heard on either US98.1, KUSN (Coffeyville), or Sonshine 98.9, KQQF (Independence).
