After the Coffee County defense stopped Oakland and made them settle for a field goal in their first possession, the Patriots got 4 touchdowns in the 1st quarter and 4 more in the 2nd quarter to take a 59 to 6 lead into the half.  Coffee County got a touchdown on a 50 yard halfback pass from Matthew Pittman to Andrew Hite with 1:08 left in the 2nd quarter.  Oakland added a punt return a kickoff return and rushing touchdown in the second half as they scored 21 points on 4 offensive plays.

Coffee County was led in rushing by Marshall Haney who had 47 yards in 23 carries.  Haney also caught 2 passes for 5 yards.  Hite was the leading receiver with the 1 catch for 50 yards and a touchdown.  Injuries forced Kelvin Verge to return kicks for Coffee County as he had 5 kickoff returns for 97 yards.  For their efforts, Hite and Verge were named the Mid-Tenn Turf Co-Most Valuable Players of the game. 

Coffee Count traveles to Murfreesboro on Friday for the season finale at Riverdale.  Kickoff is set for 7 PM at Riverdale High School.
