The first win was certainly sweet for the Bethlehem Christian Academy Lady Knights.
Coach Mike Elmankabady’s team defeated the Howard School 44-26 Friday to register its first victory of 2013-2014.
Ravyn Harrison led BCA with 16 points while Sarah Beth Adams finished with 13. Kara Maxwell contributed eight points while Katelyn Price scored five.
“We needed this win so bad,” Elmankabady said. “We started slow. We knew we would have to get on the boards and rebound well to have a chance. I am proud of how we won. We are a little further along than last year at this time.”
The Lady Knights led by four points after the first quarter and by 10 at halftime. BCA opened up a 20-point advantage after the third quarter.
The team was off Tuesday and enters region play Thursday against Nathanael Greene Academy at home at 6 p.m.
