Ben’s Ford Christian School lost to Centreville Academy, 40-0, in a road game that was held Friday at Centreville.
Ben’s Ford trailed 8-0 after the first quarter.
Eagles coach Dean King said his team played well defensively in the first period. He said the unit made two big fourth-down stops on back-to-back series from the 2. Centreville’s touchdown was off of a fumble recovery, after Ben’s Ford fumbled an option in the end zone, and Centreville added the two-point conversion after the second stop.
The defense allowed just one first-half touchdown. Centreville recovered a fumble in the end zone in the second period.
It was 24-0 at halftime.
Centreville returned the second-half kickoff for a touchdown.
“Centreville is a good football team,” King said. “I thought we played a good first half.”
Tyler Winstead threw for 5 yards on 7-of-13 passing. Tucker Keating led the receivers with three catches for 42 yards.
Alston Moore tallied 24 yards on the ground in 11 attempts.
Justin Moore had two receptions for 7 yards and Jordan Provost had two catches for 1 yard. Xavier Adams ran for 17 yards in his only carry.
