In its third year as an 11-man program, Covenant is still enduring some growing pains. Those were evident again on Saturday.
The Knights were overmatched during a 62-7 loss to McKinney Christian in their home opener and their TAPPS district opener at Miller Field.
The Mustangs (3-2, 1-0) racked up 516 yards of total offense and raced to a 48-0 halftime lead behind several big scoring plays. The Knights (1-5, 0-1) committed five turnovers.
The only highlight for Covenant came on the opening drive of the second half, which ended with a 31-yard touchdown pass from Alec Scully to Graham Hill.
