Fox Sports reports on a high school girls basketball game in which Covenant School, a private Christian high school in Dallas, ran up the score on Dallas Academy, a school serving students with learning differences that has not won a game in four years.

A parent who attended the game told The Associated Press that Covenant continued to make 3-pointers — even in the fourth quarter. She praised the Covenant players but said spectators and an assistant coach were cheering wildly as their team edged closer to 100 points.

"I think the bad judgment was in the full-court press and the 3-point shots," said Renee Peloza, whose daughter plays for Dallas Academy. "At some point, they should have backed off."

Covenant school has since asked for a forfeit for their unsportsperson-like behavior.

Addendum: the Covenant High girls basketball coach has been fired.
