First Presbyterian Christian Academy again proved playing with heart is needed on the field. The 12 players who make up the iron-man team fought hard and challenged St. Andrews Friday in Savannah.
The Lions had the advantage with a roster of 26, giving them more opportunities to substitute tired legs. Not the ‘Landers.
The boys switched from offense to defense and then to special teams. It was a close game with the score tied 6-6 in the second quarter before the Lions pulled away.
The Highlanders weren’t about to cave. Dylan McGarry caught a touchdown pass and later drew a penalty from the Lions when he was knocked down during a punt. That set up a Highlander TD and extra point, closing the gap, but trailing 30-20 with 4:25 left in regulation.
Both team swapped touchdowns giving the Lions the 36-26 win.
The Highlanders are 0-2 and will host Curtis Baptist at their first home game of the season Friday. It will also be the night Under-Armour will unveil the team’s new uniforms. FPCA won last year’s Under-Armour Challenge, earning $140,000 worth of athletic equipment and apparel. The game starts at 7:30 p.m. at Long Bell Stadium.
