The reigning Del-Val champions proved to be too much for the host Tigers, as Academy Park defeated Marple Newtown 38-7 in the 2013 opener. Ross Binder broke a 50-yard touchdown run to get the Tigers on the board for their first score of 2013.
Many Tigers saw their first varsity action, including several sophomores expected to play key roles this season. Abel Hoff, Marcus Weathers, Kyle Kelly, Gino DiCamillo, and Noah Turner all played significant snaps in their first career game. Kicker Julian Farrer was successful in his first career PAT and Brendan Bradley handled the kickoff duties.
The Tigers will host Strath Haven (1-0, 0-0) on Friday, September 6 at Harry Harvey Field at 7PM.
