Red Raiders lose to Lincoln County

Posted on Friday, April 5, 2013 at 9:03 pm

The Coffee County Central High School Red Raiders matched Lincoln County hit-for-hit Friday, but base running and fielding errors made the difference as Coffee County lost 4-2.

Both teams managed six hits, but Lincoln County made no fielding errors while Coffee County had two, along with a runner caught stealing to take the wind out of the Red Raiders’ sails early in the game.

The non-district loss to Lincoln County follows two district losses this week to 6-AAA powerhouse Cookeville: 14-1 at homeĀ  Tuesday and 3-0 on the road Wednesday. The Red Raiders are now 4-15 for the year and 1-5 in district play.

CHS travels to Lavergne Saturday.
