The Lady Raiders extended the lead to 30-16 midway through the third quarter, but a jumper by Courtney Smith triggered a 6-2 run to slice the deficit to 32-23 by quarter's end.

Missy Jones' layup gave the hosts a  34-23 advantage, but a trey by McKenzie Iles started a 11-1 run to slice the deficit to 35-34 with 2:06 remaining in the game. A basket by Michaela Gregory gave Coffee County a 37-34 lead with 43.5 left in the game.
