The Bethlehem Christian Academy football team scored 32 points Friday night in its 2014 season opener but all the points weren't enough to keep track with visiting Windsor Academy.
When the final horn sounded, it was the Windsor Knights who recorded a 62-32 victory at Legion Field in Monroe. Windsor finished the 2013 season 0-10, but showed it will likely be one of the most improved teams in the GISA this fall.
BCA (0-1) got two touchdowns from Graham Doolittle and Chris Ratterree but will have to rebound before facing a strong Piedmont Academy team on the road next Friday in Monticello.
Windsor scored first on a 1-yard touchdown run with 8:38 left in the opening quarter. The drive began at midfield after a personal foul call on BCA, who was forced to go three-and-out on its first series.
The game turned when Windsor stopped BCA after the home Knights went on an impressive drive beginning at their 38-yard line. BCA used 11 plays to move inside Windsor territory before a pass completion was ripped away by a Windsor defender. The Knights from Macon then needed just one play to score on an 87-yard pass play with 3:58 left in the opening quarter.
By halftime, Windsor led 44-7 and was never seriously challenged despite some second half touchdowns by BCA.
Doolittle would score on runs of 75 and 6 yards while Ratterree found the endzone on runs of 37 yards each. Coach Lance Fendley's Knights would also score on a 33-yard touchdown pass from Ethan Torbett to Aaron Clifford late in the fourth quarter.
