Sunrise fends off Red Devils

Allen Community College kept things close, but a late rally by Sunrise Christian Academy was too much for ACC in a 91-76 defeat. Allen opens Jayhawk Conference play Saturday vs. Hesston.

It may have only felt like dejá vű for Allen Community College’s men Saturday.

The Red Devils were locked in another tight battle with Sunrise Christian Academy, just as they were in their first game Nov. 29.

And, just as before, Sunrise took control late in the second half, turning a 66-63 lead into a double-digit advantage rather quickly.
