It wasn’t pretty. But it was a win.

Coffee County’s boys took the lead on the first play of the second half on a bucket from Jackson Shemwell and never trailed again, going on to beat Lincoln County 39-35 Monday night in Manchester.

The Raiders extended their lead to 37-29 and held on late. The Falcons got two technical free throws from Maddux Franklin to cut the Raider lead to 39-35 with 9.2 seconds to play and the Falcons had the ball. But the Raiders were able to hold on.

Coffee County’s Cooper Reed led the way with 15 points and Shemwell added 9.

Meanwhile, the Falcons were led by Franklin with 14 points off the bench, including a 4-of-6 performance behind the three point line. Lincoln County struggled greatly at the line, going 5-of-13 and turned the ball over 14 times.
