Overtime goal spoils KCKCC home soccer opener


KANSAS CITY, KAN. ----- Coffeyville’s defending Jayhawk Conference co-champions spoiled Kansas City Kansas Community College’s home soccer opener Thursday with a 3-2 overtime win.

The win completed a sweep by the Red Ravens, who took a 4-1 in the women’s opener.

“For our first game, the kids played well,” said KCKCC Coach Ruben Rodriguez. “It was a tough opener because Coffeyville returned several players from last year.”  Freshmen Isai Gutierrez and Kelvin Ibarra scored the Blue Devils’ goals.

Sophomore Karla Montes scored KCKCC’s lone goal, left-footing a direct kick into the back of the net.

Both KCKCC teams are back in action Tuesday, facing Barton County in El Dorado with the women playing at 2 p.m. and the men at 4 p.m.
