From there it was all Coffee County. CHS went on a 9-0 run and proceeded to outscore the Lady Bucs 24-7 the rest of the game to pull away for a 67-41 win.

“That was a good win for us, I thought a really solid second half,” said CHS head coach Joe Pat Cope. “Beech was a substate team last year and a really good test for us early in the season.”

Natalie Barnes led Coffee County with 14 points. CHS did struggle with turnovers – giving up 19 possessions.

“A lot of those turnovers were unforced and obviously we have to clean that up,” Barnes said.
