The Coffee County Middle School Red Raiders hosted Spring Hill on Friday night in the semifinal round of the TMSAA Area 6 Basketball Tournament at Coffee County Middle School.  The Red Raiders used a strong 2nd half rally to pull off a 41 to 25 win over the Generals.  The win punches Coffee Middle’s ticket to Saturday’s championship game. 

Trailing by 4 entering the 2nd half, Coffee Middle opened the 3rd period on a 5 to 0 run to seize the lead.  Spring Hill rallied to go back on top 21 to 19 before the Raiders closed out the period on a 12 – 0 run.  Ethan Hargrove was the leading scorer for Coffee Middle as he netted 15 points.  Jackson Shemwell added 9 and Cooper Reed finished with 8 points. 

Both Coffee Middle teams will be back in action on Saturday.  The Red Raiders will square off against Whitthorne Middle of Columbia in the area championship at 6:45 PM.  The Lady Raiders will face White County in the Area Tournament finals on Saturday afternoon at CCMS.  That game will tip off at 4:15 PM at the CCMS gym.  Thunder Radio will be on hand to bring you the broadcast of both games as part of the 1st National Bank Hometown Sports Series.
