Bethlehem Christian Academy had its share of chances Friday night but in the end saw visiting Piedmont Academy take a 28-7 win in the first on-campus game played in school history by the Knights.
Trailing 14-7 at halftime, BCA (0-2) had two chances at the start of the second half to tie the game or even move in front but was unable to finish drives. Even the end of the first half saw BCA at the Piedmont 1-yard line as time expired.
The matchup between the teams was a great deal closer than 2014's 77-0 score in favor of Piedmont, but Knights coach Lance Fendley isn't one for moral victories.
"We just have to do a better job on offense," Fendley said. "Our defense played well tonight after our offense kept putting them against the wall. That's not how we are going to win. We have to be able to put points on the scoreboard."
