Raiders fall to top ranked Oakland in storm-shortened region game

Coffee County’s defense held up well against the state’s top-ranked team Friday, but Oakland finally found some running room and storms cut the game short as the Raiders fell 22-3 at Oakland High School.

CHS Red Raider Ian Weldon  split the uprights on a 29-yard field goal with 8:07 to play in the first half for the Raiders’ only points.

Weldon’s kick cut the Oakland lead to 7-3 and helped the Raiders recover after Oakland took a quick 7-0 lead just 45 seconds into the game. The Raider field goal was set up by a Matthew Pittman interception near mid field.

But Oakland proved too powerful offensively, scoring 7 plays after the Raider field goal on a 35-yard gallop from Patriot running back Antonio Patterson. Oakland scored again with just 28 seconds to play in the half and added a two point conversion.

The Raiders were set to return the second-half kickoff, but storms rolled into the area and officials agreed to stop the game with the score as it was.
