Hosting their first home match of the year, the Coffee County CHS soccer welcomed Columbia to the Raider Soccer Field on Tuesday. After a tough defensive 1st half, Columbia notched a goal 2 minutes into the 2nd half to take a 1 nil lead. From that point forward, the Lady Raiders dominated the game scoring 6 goals in the final 33 minutes to claim a 6 to 1 win.
Trailing 1 nil, Jayda Wright crushed a free kick from 35 yards out into the upper right corner of the goal to level the match in the 48th minute. One minute later, Maddy Jones drove a shot off the Columbia keeper’s hand to give Coffee County a lead they would not surrender. Jones finished the night with a hat trick as she added goals in the 62nd and 69th minutes. Jenna Garretson finished with a brace as she had a goal in the 57th minute off an assist from Katie Cotten. Her second score came in the 60th minute.
The win gives the Lady Raiders a record of 5 and 1 on the season and 3 and 0 in district play. The Lady Raiders will hit the road again on Thursday as they travel to Shelbyville for a district match with the Eaglettes. Opening kick is set for 7 PM.
