MILTON, Ga. – Fellowship Christian School won its game against Lakeview Academy 41-14 on Aug. 30. The start could not have gone any better for Al Morrell's first game as Fellowship Christian School's varsity head football coach.
The Paladins defense forced a fumble on Lakeview's first play from scrimmage at the 3-yard line, which senior Travis Kinney scooped up in the end zone for a touchdown 10 seconds into the contest at Paladin Field. Jake Williamson kicked the first of his five extra points to give FCS a 7-0 cushion in the season-opening victory.
FCS grabbed a 21-6 halftime lead en route to a 41-14 victory over the Lions. Kinney led FCS with three touchdowns, including scoring runs of 4 and 8 yards in the fourth quarter.
"It was an exciting start," said Morrell, who began his 32nd season as a football coach on Friday night. "We caught a big break early. It was a momentum builder. The win overall is a confidence builder for us. These kids had not won too much lately, so it's great for them."
