Ben’s Ford Christian School was hurt by turnovers in a 41-24 loss to Wilkinson County Christian Academy in a road game held Friday.
The Eagles committed three turnovers — two lost fumbles and an interception.
“It would’ve been a lot closer had we not turned the ball over,” Ben’s Ford Christian School coach Tommy Pittman said. “They still probably would’ve beaten us. They’re a good team. That’s the third time we’ve played them. We played them in the scrimmage and the jamboree. We knew pretty much knew what they were going to do. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them do really well in the playoffs.”
