An Alli Amado goal in the 18th minute, coupled with an outstanding defensive performance from the Lady Raider defense and keeper Ali Shelton, lifted the CHS Lady Raider soccer team to a 1 to 0 win over Warren County on Tuesday night. After a shaky start that forced Shelton to stop 4 Warren County shots, the Lady Raiders pressed the attack resulting in Amado’s goal off of a beautiful feed from the left wing by Eliza Masters. Coffee County controlled the middle of the field, especially in the middle 40 minutes of the contest as they outshot the Lady Pioneers 15 to 7 going into the last 20 minutes.
As the game became more physical down the stretch, Warren County was able to take more shots but had only 2 real chances to tie the game. An apparent Warren County goal in the 63rd minute was waved off due to an offside call and a 3 shot volley in the 72nd minute saw Shelton get 2 heroic saves before Warren County sailed a shot over the crossbar to kill the rally. Shelton finished the night with 9 saves while Coffee County had 16 shots with 14 of them being on frame. The Lady Raiders travel to Shelbyville on Thursday night for a 7 PM district match.
