The Marple Newtown Tigers (0-3) fought hard Friday night in their 41-13 loss to the Garnet Valley Jaguars (3-0). The Tigers put on tough inspired performance and several players played hard from whistle to whistle, like Senior tailback Phil Graziano who carried the load for the Tigers’ ground game. Graziano also had a huge kick return on special teams in the first quarter when he ran down to the Jaguars’ 33 yard line, for total return of 67 yards.
The Tigers were put on the board by Sophomore tailback Mario Dioguardi in the 3rd quarter on a 5 yard scamper for the Tigers first touchdown. Dioguardi had several keys runs in the 7 play 60 plus yard drive that set the Tigers up for the touchdown.
