The Bethlehem Christian Academy football team held off Covenant Academy 30-26 Friday night at Legion Field in Monroe.
The Knights (1-1) led 24-6 at halftime, but saw the Rams claw their way back into the contest. Covenant never led in the game, but pulled to within 24-20 in the third quarter and within 30-26 with 3:24 left. BCA was able to run out the game’s final 3:19 after recovering an onside kick attempt.
“This was a great stepping stone for our program,” BCA coach Lance Fendley said. “This is a game where we found out what we are made of.”
