The Bethlehem Christian Academy football team was so close to a win Friday the players and coaches could probably almost taste it.
In the end, however, Covenant Christian Academy would hold on for a 28-27 win, spoiling a furious comeback attempt for the Knights.
“It was a tough one to take,” said BCA coach Don Garmon. “It was a game where you felt you left a lot of points on the field. You have to tip your hat to Covenant because they did what they had to do to win. Their Wing-T offense allowed them to grind it out. Overall, I thought our scheme was solid. We did a much better job against them in the second half.”
