Trevor Horne sank the front end of a one & one with 9 seconds remaining to lift the Coffee County Middle School Red Raiders to a 37 to 36 win over White County and give Coffee County a sweep of the visiting Warriors on Monday night.  The Raiders held off a furious 13 point 4th quarter rally from White County to win their 4th game in a row. Leading by six points heading into the final frame, Coffee County needed baskets from Jaxon Vaughn and Hayden Hullet and a 3 point play from Trenton Scrivnor to put the tie game in Horne’s hand at the end and the big man delivered for the Raiders. Scrivnor finished the night with 9 points while Vaughn added 8. Coffee County was led in scoring by Kyle Farless who finished with 11 points.

The Lady Raiders got back on the winning track with a 31 to 21 win over White County. Bella Vinson poured in 23 points and Keri Munn added 6 points as the dynamic duo outscored White County 14 to 1 in the 3rd period.  With the win, the Lady Raiders improved to 5 and 1 on the season. Coffee Middle will be back in action on Thursday with a rematch at White County. The girl’s game will tip off at 6 PM.
