Fredonia Defeats Cherryvale in 4OT

 

It took all of regulation and four overtime periods, but Fredonia defeated Cherryvale 28-22 to earn its first win of the season Friday night. 

 

The first quarter went by without any scoring, but the two teams traded blows in the second. Cherryvale scored first on a 7-yard touchdown run by Trevin Elam. Fredonia then responded with an 8-yard touchdown run by Colten Dinkel. With 43 seconds before the half, Cherryvale put itself up 14-6.  However, Dinkel once again hit paydirt on the first play of the ensuing Fredonia drive, with a 61-yard score up the right sideline to send the teams to halftime tied at 14-14. 

 

The second half proved to be frustrating for both sides, as Cherryvale frequently got into goal-line situations before fumbling the football away. Meanwhile, Fredonia struggled to get out of their own territory, with penalties often negating their biggest plays. Overall, the two teams combined for 10 turnovers, with the Chargers giving up 7 (including 4 lost fumbles inside the Fredonia 10-yard line) and Fredonia giving up 3. Neither team was able to score in the second half, bringing the game into overtime at 14-14.

 

The first two overtime periods went by without either team scoring, but Fredonia would make things interesting in 3OT through Dinkel's third touchdown of the day. However, Cherryvale would answer with a touchdown of their own, continuing on into a fourth overtime period. Finally, after stopping Cherryvale yet again, and facing 4th down from the 5-yard line, Fredonia would rely on Dinkel once again to end the game once and for all.

 

Dinkel picked up four touchdowns in Friday's game, three on the ground and the game-winner through the air. Both teams are now 1-2 on the season.  Next Friday's Game of the Week is our 8-man debut and a battle of the undefeated, as West Elk takes on Sedan. That game can be heard on 690AM, KGGF.

The big play of the game came with just under a minute left in the first quarter courtesy of running back Trey King.

 

Thornton and King would tack on one more touchdown apiece as Caney Valley took a 28-0 at the half. The Bullpups would coast in the second half for the easy win, but not without a brilliant play by defensive back Aydenn Waltrip to set up the Bullpups' final score.

Oswego will look to put a tough loss behind them as they look to move back above .500 for the season.

 

The Indians dropped a 68-66 thriller to St. Paul in Week 2, in one of the state's highest-scoring matchups. The team's next opponent is Altoona-Midway, which has notably struggled on both sides of the ball. The Jets have been shut out in each of its two games thus far.

However, the team's newest opponent brings a different skillset to the table. Head coach Mick Holt said Central could be considered the opposite of Flinthills.

 

Both teams come into Friday's game at 2-0. Central defeated Oxford 46-22.

Two More Red Ravens Earn KJCCC Player of the Week

Slight Movement for Ravens, Pirates in New Rankings

The Ravens will be back in action September 25th against Highland, while Independence takes to the field this Saturday against Fort Scott.

Strong First Half Pushes Coffeyville Past Dodge City

 

The Coffeyville Red Ravens football team used a strong first half effort to push itself past Dodge City by a score of 22-13.

 

Early in the first quarter, the Red Ravens offense would bust its longest play of the game, a 51-yard touchdown run for Star Thomas. A missed PAT would make it 6-0, but kicker Forrest Taylor would more than make up for it through field goals of 38 and 39 yards.

 

Dodge City scored its first touchdown of the game midway through the second quarter, a 4-yard pass from Rashad Mckee to Justin Mitchell. However, the Ravens responded just a few minutes later with a 24-yard touchdown pass of their own, as Jakson Thomson found Chris Bellamy in stride to make it a 19-7 lead at the half.

 

The Ravens offense largely stalled out in the second half, but their work had already been done. The Conquistadors only managed to find two more field goals thanks to a bend-but-not-break approach from the defense. Taylor sealed the game early in the fourth quarter with a 47-yard field goal, his third of the game, to finalize the score at 22-13.

 

Coffeyville's Dorian Lewis led all Ravens with 93 yards on the ground, with Thomas recording 86. Thomson went 16-29 through the air for 95 yards. The Ravens are now 2-0 on the season. They'll take next week off before returning to action at home against Highland.

Caney Valley Moves to 2-0

 

Caney Valley moves to an impressive 2-0 as they won in week two 48-6 against the Neodesha Bluestreaks. The Bullpups got the scoring kick off with a 25-yard pick-six by Trey King on the second play of the game. The scoring would stop there as Tanner Rose hit Gavin Stimpson in the endzone for the second Caney score. The duo would hook up again on the next drive with a 32-yard touchdown pass. Caney Valley would hold a commanding 42-0 lead at the half.

 

The Bullpups got the ball to open the third quarter and it took them no time to get on the board as Dylan Thompson got his first touchdown of the season to put Caney up 48-0. The lone Bluestreaks score came with under 30 seconds left in the game on a 15 yard Wyatt Songer run. Trey King had over 100 yards for the second straight game with 130 on just 11 carries and Stimpson had five catches for 113 yards and two touchdowns. Caney Valley will be on the road next week as they head to Erie.  

Fredonia Falls Just Short in Loss to Humboldt

 

A strong start wasn't enough to land Fredonia in the win column, as the Yellowjackets dropped a close contest to Humboldt, 28-26.

 

Both teams entered the contest looking to pick up their first win of the season, and from the get-go, it seemed Fredonia wanted it more. Running back Colten Dinkel started off the scoring with a 42-yard touchdown run up the left sideline midway through the first quarter, and was followed by quarterback Joel Dutton's 1-yarder early in the second. Humboldt would eventually answer, with their own quarterback Gavin Page finding the endzone on a 7-yard carry. However, Fredonia would pick up another touchdown just before the half, a 10-yard scamper from Dinkel that gave the Yellowjackets a 12-point lead at 20-8.

 

Out of the locker rooms, though, it became clear that Humboldt had finally found the answer to Fredonia's defense. A combination of Page and running back Trey Sommer marched down the field early in the third quarter for a quick score. After the rest of the quarter came and went, the Cubs took their first lead of the game in the fourth at 22-20 after Page found the endzone from 4 yards. Then taking advantage of a Fredonia fumble deep in their own territory, Page would hit paydirt again, this time from 17 yards out to increase the lead to 28-20.

 

A failed Humboldt 2-point conversion left the game within striking distance, giving the Yellowjackets just one more try to tie the game. With 1:49 remaining, Fredonia would almost make good on that chance, putting Dutton in the endzone for his second touchdown of the day. Unfortunately, Dinkel's last-chance effort to pick up the 2-point conversion fell just a couple yards short, allowing Humboldt to eventually recover an onside and run out the clock.

 

Page finished the day with all four Humboldt touchdowns, while Dinkel and Dutton split Fredonia's four scores. The Yellowjackets, now 0-2, will feature in our next Game of the Week as well, remaining at home to host Neodesha. The Bluestreaks dropped their Week 2 contest to Caney. Next Friday's game can be heard on 690AM, KGGF.

Nado Drop to 0-2 in Columbus

 

Field Kindley traveled to Columbus for their first road game of the season taking the Titans. Gabe Martin and the Columbus offense were just too much for the Nado beating them 40-8. Both these teams came into the game with scoreless week ones but after an 11 play 60-yard drive, Columbus saw their first touchdown of the season. The Nado again struggled to get anything going on offense, and the Titans quickly jumped out to a 26-0 lead. The Titans would add one more TD before halftime and take a 32-0 lead into the break.

 

The Nado looking at a potential seven-quarter scoreless streak brought in some speed and fresh legs in Jeremy Colbert. Amanie Luten would find Colbert on a short swing pass and he was off to races for a 78-yard touchdown. Columbus improves to 1-1 on the season and the Nado fall to 0-2. Back on the road next week for Coffeyville taking on Valley Center, their longest road trip of the season.

Fredonia Continues Search for First Victory

Scott, Grant Earn NJCAA Player of the Week Honors

 

It's been a good couple of weeks for Red Ravens athletics.

 

Football star Brenyen Scott continues to gather accolades for his stellar Week 1 performance, as the freshman defensive back has also been named the NJCAA DI Football Defensive Player of the Week.

 

Scott gathered 6 tackles, but most notably picked off two passes en route to helping his squad post a 17-10 victory over Hutchinson last Saturday. The Florida native sealed the game for the Ravens with an interception on the goal line that ended a potentially game-tying drive. He was also named the KJCCC Defensive Player of the Week.

 

Scott isn't the only Red Raven earning nationwide honors. Red Ravens netminder Cuba Grant earned both KJCCC and NJCAA Goalkeeper of the Week after allowing just 1 goal in two games. This includes a clean sheet against then-16th ranked Barton.

Two Red Ravens Earn KJCCC Player of the Week Honors

Sophomore punter George Eberle took home the Special Teams Player of the Week award. Eberle punted eight times Saturday for an average of 47 yards per punt. Eberle's efforts pinned the Blue Dragons deep within their own territory and set up the Red Ravens defense for success. His longest two punts on the day were recorded at 82 and 75 yards.

 

Offensive Player of the Week honors went to Independence's R.J. Walker. The quarterback racked up 271 total yards and was responsible for four touchdowns en route to a 50-28 drubbing of Butler.

Coffeyville Enters Top 10 in Latest NJCAA Football Poll

 

After upsetting the previously top-ranked team in the nation, the Coffeyville Red Ravens were rewarded with a top ten appearance in the latest NJCAA poll.

 

The Ravens are now ranked 10th in the nation after defeating the Hutchinson Blue Dragons 17-10 last Saturday. Other Jayhawk Conference rivals ranked in this week's poll include Garden City (#3), Independence (#7), and Hutchinson (#11). Butler fell out of the poll after losing to Independence, who climbed three spots. Garden City moved up two spots, but did not play last week.

 

Last year's national championship runner-up, Snow College, is now ranked #1. That's the first time a non-Jayhawk Conference team has sat in that spot since 2020. Hutchinson had occupied that spot for the entirety of the Spring 2021 Season.

CCC Upsets Number One Hutch

 

Coffeyville Community College pulls off the upset of the number one team in the nation and the defending national champions. The Red Ravens beat Hutchinson 17-10 in the first game of the season in large part due to an outstanding performance from their defense.

 

It was a rough start to the game for CCC as starting QB Will Bohn fumbled the football that was returned for a touchdown, but that would end up being the only trip to the endzone for the Blue Dragons. CCC would eventually make the switch at QB to division one transfer from Louisiana Tech Jakson Thomson, who would start to find some momentum with the Red Ravens offense.

 

Hutch held onto their 7-0 lead for most of the first half but with just under five minutes left in the second quarter, CCC added their first points of the game with a field goal from Forrest Taylor. With the first half coming to an end CCC cut the Hutch lead to 1 with another FG from Taylor, but a roughing the kicker penalty would give the Ravens a first down and 8.8 seconds to try and take the lead. Thomson would seize the second chance at a touchdown finding Cortarious Wilson, with a back-shoulder fade, in the endzone for the lead and what would be the go-ahead TD.

 

The Coffeyville defense and special teams continued their excellent play into the second half blocking a punt in the third quarter and recovering in the endzone. Hutch was able to add three points early in the 4th, but the Ravens defense never allowed them into the endzone securing the victory. CCC's defense and special teams were the stars of the game forcing 8 turnovers including five fumbles, two interceptions and the blocked punt.

 

It's a 1-0 start to the season with a high likely hood of being ranked when the next poll comes out this week. CCC is back at home next week taking on 0-1 Dodge City.

Nado Drop Home Opener

 

Turnovers and penalties hurt Field Kindley as they fall in their season opener to Augusta 48-0. In a game that saw an hour and a half weather delay, the Nado turned the ball over five times with nine penalties. Eight of those flags came before the weather delay with, seven and half minutes left in the second quarter, and only one after. The Nado also had numerous fumbled snaps but were always able to recover the ball.

 

After a stalemate for the first part of the first quarter, Augusta's offense rattled off 28 consecutive points to end the quarter. In the second quarter, before the weather delay, the Nado made a change at running back bringing in Jermey Colbert Jr. Colbert brought and breath of fresh life into the offense picking up the Nado's first first down of the night. Colbert was able to put together a couple of good runs back to back, but after a two sacks and fumbled snap the Nado were looking at a 4th and 38, killing all momentum. Augusta controlled the game from after the rain delay on. FKHS heads on the road to take on a tough opponent in Columbus next week.

Erie Defeats Cherryvale in Marathon Contest

 

Erie and Cherryvale took to the field at 7 pm Friday, kicking off the 2021 high school football season. Nearly four-and-a-half hours later, it would be the Red Devils who came out on top, 16-15.

 

Cherryvale struck first, with new head coach Robert Henderson reaching into his bag of tricks midway through the first quarter. Running back Jackson Knight hit the senior receiver, Briggs Adkison, in stride for the 17-yard touchdown pass. The second quarter would see Erie punch back. Cayce Welch broke through the middle of the line on fourth down, turning what should have been only a couple of yards into a 25-yard score. The Red Devils led at the break, 8-7.

 

After halftime, things would prove to be a little wacky. Lightning was spotted in the area, forcing a 30-minute weather delay. The teams eventually returned to the field and played the first 4 minutes of the third quarter. However, another lightning strike would again send the teams back to the locker room. After another 30 minutes had passed, another restart was attempted, with another four minutes passing by on the clock. A third lightning strike, unfortunately, would force a third and final 30-minute weather delay.

 

As the teams finally got going once again, finally finishing the third quarter after nearly 2 hours, the lights at Erie's stadium automatically shut off, forcing another 10-minute delay. That would be the final pause of the action.

 

After getting underway once again, Erie held onto its lead with a couple of redzone stands. However, with Cherryvale's offense pushing, and Erie's sputtering, it seemed as if it'd be only a matter of time before the Chargers found their way back on top. That would finally come from a 15-yard touchdown run from Trevin Elam, putting Cherryvale ahead 15-8.

 

The lead would only last for a minute and a half. Erie quarterback Garrett Ruark took matters into his own hands, rushing up the left sideline for a 50-yard touchdown, the longest play for either team in the game. Ruark would go the opposite direction to convert the two point conversion. The senior would then secure an interception on the defensive side of the ball, locking things up for the Red Devils.

 

Erie improves to 1-0 on the season, while Henderson and Cherryvale start their 2021 season at 0-1. Game of the Week will be heading to Fredonia for Week 2, as the Yellowjackets host the Humboldt Cubs. Pregame will start at 6:30, with kickoff scheduled for 7 pm. You can listen in on the Mighty 690, KGGF.

After that Caney ran away with the game scoring 30 unanswered points to lead 36-6 at the half. Caney would open the second half on defensive forcing a four and out and four plays later extended their lead.

 

Caney would go on to win the game 49-18. Trey king had 14 carries for 160 yards and four touchdowns and Baylor Thorten had 10 carries for 129 yards and two touchdowns. Caney had 324 yards rushing and 383 total yards of offense. Next week Caney welcome the Bluestreaks of Neodesha
