The winner of that semi-final match will take on the winner of Lincoln County and either Shelbyville or Franklin County in a championship match at 7 p.m. Thursday. Lincoln County beat the Lady Raiders 3-0 back on Aug. 25, breaking a 30-match district win streak. Coffee County avenged that loss with a 3-0 win Sept. 13 in Manchester.
