First-year Beaufort Academy football head coach Scott Richards witnessed his team miss out on multiple chances to get the win last Friday, Sept. 5. Playing in a rainstorm, visiting Faith Christian managed to narrowly edge the Eagles 44-43 in an SCISAA 8-man game.
With the close loss, Beaufort Academy dropped to 0-2.
The team, however, showed some improvement following its season-opening loss to W.W. King.
A fourth-and-long pass by Beaufort Academy missed its mark late in the game to end an Eagles drive that could have proven to be the game-winning possession.
Host Beaufort Academy also failed to convert on two-point conversions in the early-season matchup.
The Eagles jumped out in front early, outscoring Faith Christian 15-0. Faith Christian battled back to outscore Beaufort Academy 24-14 in the second quarter but the Eagles still clung to a 29-24 lead at halftime. Taking the lead after intermission, Faith Christian outscored BA 14-0 in the third quarter.
The Eagles will visit Henry Academy on Friday, Sept. 12, with kickoff for the game set for 7:30 p.m.
