It appears that the Coffee Middle Football run of CTC dominance is over.
After back to back seasons of rolling through conference play, the Raiders started the conference season 0-1 Tuesday night with a 44-7 loss at the hands of Harris Middle in Shelbyville – a game you heard live on Thunder Radio.
Coffee Middle trailed 16-0 after the firs quarter and 30-0 by the halftime break. The Raiders finally got on the board in the third quarter on a touchdown run from 8th grade quarterback Jett Trussler, who finished with 52 yards on 7 carries. He was also 4-for-4 through the air for 32 yards.
Stephen Bobo accounted for 200 yards of offense for the Eagles and 4 scores.
The loss drops the Raiders to 0-2 overall, 0-1 in CTC play. They will be at home Friday night, Aug. 12 at 6:30.
