The Coffee County Middle School JV soccer team completed a perfect season on Saturday as they won the CTC JV soccer tournament at the CCMS Field. The Lady Raiders, who came into the tournament as the top seed, faced off against Tullahoma in the opening round. The Lady Raiders got 2 goals from Julia Duncan and a goal from Maddie Jones to advance to the finals by a score of 3 to 1. That set up a meeting in the finals with the 3rd seeded Eagles of Harris Middle.

In the finals, Julia Duncan bent a beautiful corner kick just inside the far post to give Coffee County a 1 to 0 lead which they carried into the halftime break. Duncan added her 4th goal of the day in the 34th minute to extend the lead to 2 to 0. The Eagles stepped up the pressure as they added a goal in the 40th minute to tighten the match, but great defense and effective ball control helped the Lady Raiders close out the match, and the championship, by a final score of 2 to 1.
