Down by double digits at home, the Raiders put on a massive comeback against the White County Warriors this past week, keeping their record perfect going into the Thanksgiving tournaments with a 57-52 come-from-behind win.
The problems for the Coffee County boys came early as shooting woes left them looking up at White County for most of the first half. At one point, the hole was 11 for Raiders in the second; however, Jaxson Vaughn heated up from the floor to spur on a late run before the half. The deficit was a manageable six as the teams went to the locker rooms.
The second half belonged to the Raiders as the offensive malaise from the opening half was a distant memory. Meanwhile, it was White County who couldn’t buy a basket as they were held to just six points in the third while Coffee had 17 to not only erase the lead but give themselves some padding going into the fourth frame.
Vaughn shined again in the fourth when the game became a free-throw duel as he hit 10 shots from the charity stripe on the way to leading his team with 17 points on the night. Also breaking into double digits on the scoreboard was Kyle Farless who had 10.
The boys went on over this past weekend to claim a win over Macon County, 53-51, on a Jaylon Wooten past second heave. The win came on the heels of a 76-75 loss to Livingston Academy at a Black Friday tournament in Woodbury which is their only blemish this season.
