The Fort Scott Community College football team picked up the first win for head coach Kale Pick on Saturday night with a 26-16 victory over Coffeyville at Frary Field.
The Greyhounds (1-3, 1-2) put together their best game on both sides this season holding the Red Ravens (1-4, 1-2) in check for most of the ball game. FSCC led 23-3 at halftime but Coffeyville made a light charge in the second half by blocking a punt and returning it for a touchdown but the Greyhounds would never surrender their two possession lead at any point in the second half.
Dalton Sneed put together his finest game of the season completing 23 of 37 passes for 230 yards and also adding 18 carries for 99 yards. Darious Abrams piled 16 carries for only 27 yards but found the end zone for the first time this season. The Greyhounds finished with 358 yards of total offense including 242 through the air. Edward Aldred led the outside with seven catches for 107 yards and a touchdown and Kyle Harrison added five catches for 55 yards.
Brody Southwell remained perfect in the kicking game hitting all four of his field goal attempts with the longest splitting the uprights from 35 yards out.
The Greyhound defense was led by Dominic Cizauskas with over eight tackles in the game, he is now 27.5 tackles away from breaking the all time record for tackles in a career for FSCC. Coffeyville was down their top two quarterbacks in the game due to injuries and was using their third stringer along with a converted defensive lineman who was getting snaps as well.
The Red Ravens finished with just 255 yards of offense while averaging less than four yards per play.
This Saturday's game will be homecoming when FSCC hosts Iowa Central for a 1:00 PM kick-off at Frary Field.
