The First Presbyterian Christian Academy football team finally returns to Long Bell Stadium on Friday after playing four away games in a row.
The Highlanders host Bethlehem Christian at 7:30 p.m.
BCA’s program turns 5 years old this season, and much like the fledgling years of FPCA, it still is getting its bumps and bruises out of the way. BCA went 1-9 last year, but carried a roster of 30 players coming into the season.
This will be the first time these two teams play each other.
Currently, the teams each have a 1-5 overall record.
Last week, the Highlanders lost 38-12 to Southwest Georgia Academy in Damascus.
The game was physical, but the outcome showed improvement against a team that overpowered FPCA 47-12 a season ago.
Should the Highlanders come out strong Friday, it could give them some steam as they have a tough game hosting Memorial Day the following week. Memorial Day is the defending Class AA champion in the Georgia Independent School Association classifications and a region opponent for FPCA.
