Just like Thursday night against Grundy County, the Coffee County Lady Raiders used a stifling defense to drop the Stars of Siegel 65-15 at home on Friday night.
As you heard on The Rooster 101.5 FM, Sophomore guard Jalie Ruehling continued her outstanding defense as she had over 10 steals to go along with 17 points.
The Lady Raiders’ defense was so good that Siegel did not score until it was 31-0 when they hit a free-throw. Coffee County led at the half, 41-5.
The scoring and defensive pressure helped Coffee County lead 51-5 after 3 quarters with subs playing about halfway through the third until the end of the game.
Bella Vinson had another superb night as she pumped in a team high 22 points. A total of 9 Lady Raiders scored on the night.
Ruehling’s efforts earned her the Crazy Daisies Player of the Game.
