Bellevue spikers too tough for CCC

By Steve Sell
September 20, 2014

Bellevue University took down Central Christian College’s volleyball team in straight sets here Friday.

The Lady Bruins were dominant in 25-12, 25-16, 25-13 decisions. The loss dropped the Lady Tigers to 4-8.

Mayuko Shono threw down 10 kills for CCC, while Hannah Crandall supplied 17 assists. Sierra Sandoval was the dig leader with 11.

“Bellevue has always been a strong program and I give them all the credit of keeping us out of the match,” CCC coach Christina Ludwick said. "We had some positive moments, but overall were just outmatched in all aspects of the game."

CCC plays today at Friends in Wichita. Match time is 5:30 p.m.

Vikings pull out thrilling 29-26 victory

By Steve Sell
September 20, 2014

There's nothing like thrilling the homecoming crowd with a successful nailbiter that goes down to the final minute.

Cole Norberg's fourth-quarter touchdown with 23 seconds left in the game rallied Smoky Valley to a 29-26 victory over Haven Friday as the Vikings now have won back-to-back games since a season-opening loss to powerful Hesston.

That capped an amazing night for the Viking quarterback, who rushed for 194 yards on 34 carries and scored three touchdowns, giving him nine in the last two games. Aaron Taylor, who added 97 yards on 18 carries, accounted for the other Smoky Valley score.

Haven quarterback Tim Hendrixson had a nice game for the Wildcats with 149 yards rushing.

The Vikings will try to make it three in a row Friday at Halstead.


• Canton-Galva 50, Burrton 10 — The Eagles' homecoming crowd wasn't on pins and needles like the folks in Lindsborg, as C-G grabbed the game by the throat early and it was playing time for everybody.

C-G coach Jeff Savage saw his team nearly end the game at halftime, up 44-0. His younger players were able to soak up the atmosphere in the second half.

Trey Moddelmog ran for 103 yards and four touchdowns, while also picking off a pass. Tanner Klingensmith totaled 10 tackles in his short time on the field as he was everywhere.

The Eagles, now 2-1, go to Wichita Word of Life on Friday.

• Hesston 62, Sterling 6 — The Swathers were able to do whatever they wanted whenever they wanted in moving to 3-0.

Hesston exploded for five first-quarter touchdowns to build a 35-0 lead and never looked back.

Grant Raleigh had another terrific game with 155 yards rushing on 10 carries and two touchdowns and was 6 of 9 for 144 yards through the air for three scores, including back-to-back TD strikes to Tyler McCartney to start the game. His other TD toss was to Justin Smith.

Daniel Fulghum provided a perfect complement with three rushing touchdowns. It was 49-0 at the half and Swather coach Clint Rider was able to sub liberally in the second half.

The Swathers eye a 4-0 September on Friday when they play at Lyons.

• Peabody 22, Little River 12 — In the battle of undefeated teams, Peabody emerged in what turned into a rare 8-man defensive battle.

The Redskins couldn't get untracked as their normally potent ground game was limited to 85 yards and Little River totaled just 148 overall. Zach Galyon and Collin January scored the Little River touchdowns.

It was the first loss for the 2-1 Redskins, who play Friday at Udall.

• Trinity 40, Inman 6 — The outcome was predictable, as the Celtics are a ranked Class 3A team while the Teutons entered as a winless 2A team.

Trinity sprinted to a 20-0 first-quarter lead, aided by a fumble return by Joey Hale for a touchdown, and cruised from there.

For the third straight game, the Teutons could manage only one score, a 34-yard pass from Blayne Konrade to Blake Drueker. The Teutons, now 0-3, play host to Remington on Friday.

• Bennington 34, Moundridge 21 •

At some point, everyone is going to have to quit calling Bennington a surprise.

The Bulldogs eclipsed last year’s victory total by rallying for a 34-21 victory over the Wildcats after trailing 21-18 at one point.

Moundridge also possessed leads of 7-0 and 14-6 before Bennington charged back to win, just as it did last week when it overcame a halftime deficit against Inman.

The Wildcats packed a lot more punch in defeat with 301 yards of offense, 288 of that on the ground. Deshawn Pfeiff and Joel Holloway both surpassed the 100-yard mark with 146 and 112 yards, respectively. 

Bennington’s Kyle Kieborz was a handful, rushing for 117 yards and three touchdowns, while throwing for 247 and two scores as the Bulldogs accounted for 393 yards of offense.

Moundridge hosts undefeated Hutchinson Trinity on Friday.
