The Coffee County Middle School football team traveled to Shelbyville on Tuesday night for a conference battle with Harris.  After coming close in their first 3 contests, the Red Raiders were looking for a breakthrough performance.  Coffee County got that performance on Tuesday from their defense as they shut out Harris 28 to 0.

The Raiders built a 14 to 0 halftime lead and added a pair of insurance touchdowns in the second half.  Elijah Clemons scored a pair of touchdowns for Coffee Middle.  Jacob Barlow and Travis Martin each added a touchdown.  Brendan Sheppard added a pair of 2 point coversions as the Raiders evened their conference record at 1 and 1.

The Red Raiders will hit the road again next Tuesday when they travel to Winchester to take on South Franklin.  That game will kick off at 6:30 PM.
