Despite a valiant effort, the Coffee County Middle School soccer team fell to Tullahoma on Monday night 3 to 1. Reuben Alvarez had the lone goal for the Raiders late in the 2nd half to prevent the shutout.
The Raiders played toe to toe with the favored Wildcats in the first half as they trailed 1 nil at the intermission. The more experienced Tullahoma 11 added a pair of goals to stretch that lead to 3 nil in the 2nd half. Alvarez prevented the clean sheet for the Wildcats with his goal in the closing minutes.
The Red Raiders will return to the pitch next week when they begin play in the CTC tournament. The date, time and opponent will be announced later this week.
