Coffee County’s Red Raider basketball team shook off the Thanksgiving food and took care of business Friday afternoon, dropping Loretto 54-33 in the Cannon County Thanksgiving Classic in Woodbury.

After a slow offensive start, the Raiders caught fire from beyond the 3-point line and buried Loretto. CHS took a 31-13 lead and led by as much as 23 points at a few different points in the second half.

The Raiders were led by Dayne Crosslin, who scored 15 points behind a trio of 3-pointers. CHS also got 3-pointers from Aidan Abellana, Cooper Reed and Phineas Rollman. In total, 10 different Raiders got into the scorebook.


The Raider defense was the real story of the afternoon. CHS forced 17 Loretto turnovers and didn’t allow a Mustang field goal until there were six seconds to play in the first quarter.
