Ben’s Ford Christian School was up 32-0 after the first quarter and 46-0 at the half.

“It was a good team effort overall. We got up pretty early and our young guys got some good work after that,” Ben’s Ford Christian School coach Destin Pittman said.

On Friday, Ben’s Ford will play Porters Chapel Academy in non-district action.

“This Friday’s going to be more of a challenge than what we had this past week,” Pittman said. “We’re going to have to be ready more mentally than physically because they line up in a bunch of different offensive sets and they like to use their speed, so we’re going to have to keep them contained.”

Porters Chapel is 2-1 this season. They were on a bye week last week, but defeated Discovery Christian School, 60-0, the week before.
