The Coffee County Middle School Red Raider basketball team opened play in the TMSAA Sectional Tournament on Wednesday afternoon at Stewarts Creek Middle School.  In a game you heard here on Thunder Radio, the Red Raiders matched up against Blackman Middle in a quarterfinal round match.  Coffee County’s season came to a close as they fell 62 to 29 to the red hot shooting Flames team from Blackman.

With the 2 teams tied at 12 midway through the 2nd quarter, Blackman closed out the half on a 12 to 0 run.  Blackman opened the 2nd half with 6 straight points to build a 30 to 12 lead before an Ethan Hargrove 3 point play stopped the point streak.  Blackman hit ten 3 point baskets in the game. 

Ethan Hargrove was the leading scorer for Coffee County as he finished with 13 points.  Cooper Reed added 8 points while Jackson Shemwell finished with 4 points.  The Red Raiders will end the season with an overall record of 18 and 6.  Coffee County finished with a 2nd place finish in the CTC regular season and an Area 6 tournament title.
