With a few seconds on the clock, a foul was called on Full Armor. Both of Athens’s penalty shots were good, tying the game at 50, and pushing it into overtime. Norman made 4 points, Clifton 3 and Hurff scored 2, winning the game: 59 to 57! 

Homeschooler Peyton Clifton plays for Full Armor. He says, “My favorite moment in the game was when we won!” 

1 Timothy 4:8 reads: “For the training of the body has a limited benefit, but godliness is beneficial in every way since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.” All of their hard work and practice paid off in their first game of the season, but it was all done for the glory of God.
