Ben’s Ford Christian School trailed by 22 at halftime, but trimmed the deficit to eight before falling to Wayne Academy, 36-26, on the road Friday.
The Eagles were down 28-6 at halftime and then rebounded in the third quarter, cutting the lead to 28-20.
Wayne scored in the fourth quarter to go up 36-20. Ben’s Ford scored to make it a 10-point game, after failing on a two-point conversion. The Eagles recovered the onside kick, but turned the ball over.
Kameron Underwood had a big game for the Eagles. He had eight catches for 185 yards, two touchdowns and a two-point conversion.
“Kameron is a guy that is fired up every week,” Ben’s Ford coach Dean King said. “He’s become a big leader for us on and off the football field. Kameron is no doubt our biggest target. He’s been dominant for us each week.
“He’s getting better each week. He’s running harder, he’s finishing out plays and he’s going all out his senior year. He’s playing good football and I’m proud of him.”
Gage Tervalon scored a rushing touchdown on an 8-yard run.
Justin Moore posted a receiving score of 45 yards.
Tyler Winstead threw for 250 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.
Defensively, King was pleased with his unit.
“I was very pleased with them,” King said. “(Wayne) did score 36 points, but Wayne does have a very good football team. We gave up two big passes that hurt us, but overall, they played with effort. We played hard, we were aggressive and we were physical, but Wayne has some playmakers.”
Ben’s Ford is 2-5 this season and will be hosting Newton County Academy on Friday at 7 p.m. Newton is 3-4 after falling to Pickens Academy, 20-6.
