Victory seemed so close but turned out to be elusive for the Bethlehem Christian Academy football team Friday night in its GISA Region 4-AAA opener.

The Knights fell to Augusta Prep 17-15 after a Cavalier field goal with 4.5 seconds remaining. BCA (2-4, 0-1) had taken a 15-14 lead with 47 seconds remaining on the second field goal of the night by Maggie Mauck.

Lawson Maxwell had a safety for the Knight defense and Brice Schwebel rushed for a touchdown.

BCA was seconds away from a win in the region opener for both teams but Augusta Prep had a quality return on the kickoff following Mauck's second field goal. After two plays the Cavaliers (1-5, 1-0) made the game-winning kick.

Coach Lance Fendley's team will be on the road Oct. 12 for a region game against The Westfield School in Perry at 7:30 p.m.
