It took a half for Coffee County to completely distance itself from Rockvale, but the Raiders finally put on more steam in the second half and cruised to a 55-42 non-district win on the road Saturday night.

Junior Dayne Crosslin started off the game red hot, pouring in 11 points in the first half – finishing with 14.

The Raiders got a tip-in from Aidan Abellana at the halftime buzzer to take a 1 point lead into the locker room. It was all Coffee County in the second half, pulling ahead by as many as 20 (53-33) with 3:04 on the clock. The Raiders worked in some subs late.

Jackson Shemwell had a solid night off the bench with 8 points. Brady Nugent also scored 8 for the Raiders. Connor Shemwell added 7, Abellana 5, Cooper Reed and Phineas Rollman 4, Jahlin Osbourne and John Dobson 2.

The win improves the Raiders to 16-8 on the season and was their second in as many nights. CHS beat Warren County in overtime Friday night on the road.
