LEIPER’S FORK – The Grace Christian Academy Lions football team set a record with a 3-0 start to this season. That record ended at three games as Friendship Christian dominated the first half en route to a 37-14 victory Friday.
“Our guys came out timid tonight. They recognized that,” a disappointed GCA coach Rusty Smith said after the contest. “Friendship Christian is a very good football team and a physical football team; they always are. I’d like to think we’re a physical football team, but we didn’t start out that way.”
Friendship Christian, which improved to 2-2 overall, forced a three-and-out on GCA’s (3-1) opening possession, then appeared to stall out before Garrett Weekly found Brock Montgomery for a 25-yard score on a 4th-and-11 play less than halfway through the first quarter.
