No overtime was needed this time.

After losing to Blackman Nov. 28 in Murfreesboro, the Coffee County Red Raiders made shots late and beat the Blaze 30-29 Friday night at Joe Frank Patch Memorial Gymnasium – a game you heard live on Thunder Radio.

Down 25-19 to start the fourth quarter, the Raiders started a furious comeback. Cooper Reed started the quarter with back to back buckets and then a Jackson Shemwell basket with 2:41 to lay got the Raiders to within 28-25.

Senior post Jahlin Osbourne eventually put the Raiders in front 29-28 with 40 seconds to play on a nice move in the most.

Blackman’s Isaiah Divens drew a foul with 28 seconds on the clock and tied the game at 29-29 on a free throw.

But Red Raider Jackson Shemwell drew a foul with 8 seconds left and got to the line. Shemwell hit one shot to send the Raiders in front 30-29 and that score held.

The win marks four in a row for the Raiders and splits the season series with the Blaze.
