The Coffee County CHS basketball teams returned to Woodbury on Saturday for the final day of the Mitch Wilson State Farm Classic.  The Red Raiders got a last second bucket from Jaylon Wooten to capture a 53 to 51 win over Macon County.  The Lady Raiders rolled up a 52 to 30 victory over Huntland. 

The Red Raiders struggled in the first half as Macon County went on a 15 to 2 run in the first half to build at 21 to 8 lead.  Coffee County rallied from a 9 point halftime deficit to cut the deficit to 3 going to the 4th quarter.  In the 4th quarter, the Raiders tied the game late settling up a final play in the closing seconds.  After Hayden Hullett took the inbounds pass, he found Jaylon Wooten under the basket for the game-winning shot.  Wooten led the team in scoring with 13 points.  Hullett added 10 points, including 3 three pointers in the 2nd half.  Rod Brinkley added 9 points with all of them coming in the 4th quarter.

The Lady Raiders held Huntland scoreless in the 1st quarter as they built a 21 to 0 lead.  The Lady Raiders played a nearly flawless game as they committed only 5 foul on the game and were 8 of 12 at the free throw line.  Nine different Coffee County cagers scored on the night led by Bella Vinson who finished with 16 points.  Jalie Ruehling and Marley Perry chipped in 6 points apiece and four different Lady Raiders finished with 4 points. 

Coffee County returns to action on Tuesday when they travel up Highway 55 to tangle with non-district rival Warren County.  Thunder Radio will be on hand to bring you all the action beginning with the Powers Storage Pregame Show at 5:50.  Tipoff is set for 6 PM at Warren County High School.
