A 38 point second half explosion keyed a 56 to 38 win for the Lady Raiders of Coffee County Middle School over Warren County on Monday night. Leading by a single point at the half, the Lady Raiders used an 18 point 3rd quarter and a strong full court defense to throttle the Lady Pioneers upset hopes. Julia Duncan finished the night with 20 points including three 3 pointers. Sixth grader Bella Vinson came off the bench to notch 11 points, including two 3 pointers.
The Raiders could not string together effective offensive possessions as they fell 35 to 19 to Warren County in the nightcap. Andrew Mahaffey led the Raiders in scoring with 6 points while Weston Hargrove added 5 points. Trace Bryant and Blanton Brown each scored points.

The Raiders and Lady Raiders travel to Tullahoma on Thursday night as they take on West Middle. The girls game tips off at 6 PM.
