Two big quarters powered the Red Raiders Tuesday night. Senior Cooper Reed went off for a 22 point night and the Raiders pulled away late for a 57-50 win over visiting Franklin County – a game you heard live on Thunder Radio WMSR.
Coffee County saw a 11 point second half lead disappear into a tie game at 42-42 to close the third quarter.
But the Rebels were never able to take the lead away from the Raiders.
CHS was not very good at the stripe down the stretch, going 6-of-14 overall. But they were good enough to pull away, including a free throw from Jackson Shemwell and a pair from Courtland Farrar to seal the game in the final seconds.
Shemwell and Brady Wright each scored 9 points for the Raiders. Jayden Carter finished with 6, Cayden Trail 5, Farrar 4, and Camden Hunt 2.
Bubba Fuqua had a 20 point night for the Rebels. Coffee County forced 10 Rebel turnovers.
The win snaps a 3 game skid for the Raiders, who are now 3-4 overall. They will travel to Blackman Friday night.
