The Red Raiders had trouble with the pressing defense of South as they fell behind 16 to 2 in the 1st period.  Foul trouble for Coffee County made a comeback bid nearly impossible for the Raiders in the 2nd half.  Coffee County was led in scoring by Aiden Abellana who had 10 points.  Dayne Crosslin and Hayden Garr each chipped in 5 points.

Coffee Middle will be back at home on Monday when they play host to East Tullahoma.  The girls’ game will tip off at 6 PM.
