Ben’s Ford Christian School will be back in action on Friday against Tensas Academy on the road.

Tensas is 3-1 after they were defeated by Riverdale Academy, 14-12.

“They’re ranked No. 1 in 1A,” Pittman said. “They’re a big, physical team, but I’m hoping our depth will take over in the second half. We’re going to run it right at them and try to wear them down.”

Tensas was ranked No. 1 by Impact Sports going into last week’s action.
