The Franklin County Rebelettes lost to the Coffee County Central Lady Raiders 2-1 on the road Thursday for their third loss of the season.
The Rebelettes held a lead for most of the game, but the Lady Raiders scored twice in the final 15 minutes to give them the loss.
Franklin County head soccer coach Kent Bean said his players were better that their opponent, but the result came down to some missed opportunities and bad bounces against them.
“For 99 percent of the game, we played way better than the other team. We had plenty of chances. We just missed a couple of really close ones,” Bean said. “They had zero shots all game and we gave up two goals. It’s rough.”
Gracie Morse gave the Rebelettes an early lead with a shot that found the back of the net. The goal was her second of the season.
Neither team was able to get much of an offensive push for the remainder of the first half.
The Rebelettes led 1-0 at halftime.
The Rebelettes had several close misses in the second half with the Lady Raiders doing just enough to keep them from scoring again.
The game would be tied with 13 minutes remaining when the Lady Raiders scored on a shot that bounced over the head of Franklin County’s goalkeeper.
The Lady Raiders took the lead with just six minutes left on the clock to take the lead.
The Rebelettes had a few more scoring opportunities, but they could not convert them into goals as they lost by one.
With the loss, the Rebelettes moved to 2-3-3 on the season and 2-2 in district play.
They will next play Tuesday at Shelbyville Central High School. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
