Marple Newtown was shutout for the first time since last season. The Tiger offense could not get into any sort of rhythm the entire game, as Upper Darby cruised to a 41-0 victory.
Offensively, the Tigers were led by sophomore Abel Hoff and junior Adrian Sapnas. Hoff continues to be a major component in this offense, rushing 14 times for 75 yards. Making his debut for the Tigers was Sapnas, who had 13 carries for 63 yards. Sapnas also chipped in 4 tackles and a forced fumble.
Defensively, Zach Falcone led the way as the leading tackler with 8. Other leaders on defense were Kyle Kelly, Matt McKee, and Dean Brathwaite. Kelly recorded 6 tackles, while also recovering a fumble. McKee and Brathwaite both had 5 tackles each for the game.
As the season progresses, these games are great opportunities to grow, learn, and develop. The Tigers (1-3) next game will be Friday, September 27, as they travel to Garnet Valley (4-0).
Tigers Radio Network will be providing full coverage of the game, which kickoffs at 7 PM.
