Westwood and Coffee Middle exchanged haymakers Monday night (Oct. 24) in a thrilling rematch from last year’s overtime game.

In the end, Coffee Middle’s Lady Raiders had just a little more punch.

CMS 8th grader Jaydee Nogodula buried a 3 with just over 4 minutes to play to put the Lady Raiders in front 41-39 and Westwood never recovered, with Coffee County pulling out a 48-42 win at Coffee County Central High School.

CMS was solid at the free throw line late to keep Westwood at a distance. Hayleigh Harris knocked down two free throws with 3:40 to play, putting Coffee County up 43-39, and Kaysen Morgan hit two more in the final seconds to get to the final score.

Westwood put up a valiant effort, led by 8th grade guard Jules Ferrell’s 25 points. Ferrell nailed 4 3-pointers on the night. Reece Finch also got into double-figures with 12 points. But Westwood only got a field goal from one other player – a long range 2 from Zallona Dillard.

Meanwhile, Coffee County spread around the production. Morgan had 14 – 12 coming from the arc – and Jaydee Nogodula poured in 12. Lilly Matherne added 11 points and Harris had 7 for the Lady Raiders.

Both teams will meet again in a little under a month – 6 p.m. Nov. 18th. That game will be at Coffee County Central High School.
