We’ll be live streaming the first Malvern Prep home game tonight. Kick off is 7 p.m.
Oh, and it’s the biggest game of the season for everyone’s favorite team to doubt, unbeaten and barely unscored upon Episcopal Academy
I’ll be blabbering on the air with play-by-play guy and ESPN Radio’s Mike Mreczko.
Episcopal Academy (7-0) at Malvern Prep (5-2)
Outside of handing Interboro its only loss of the season, Episcopal has not faced many “quality” opponents, a subjective term to describe teams that are widely considered legitimate foes or good measuring sticks, such PIAA district playoff contenders or league rivals that boast winning records.
Bursting with All-Delco-caliber talent on both sides of the ball, Episcopal has simply played the hand it has been dealt, pummeling the opposition by a total score of 274-14. Last week, the Churchmen defeated Springside ChestnutHill, 21-0. Cody Russell and Anthony Feliziani led a balanced rushing attack, though Russell, a key cog on defense at linebacker, could miss the rest of the year due to injury.
Malvern is EA’s toughest challenge to date. The preseason favorite to capture the league championship, the Friars feature of strong rushing game and tremendous size and strength in the trenches. Their quarterback, Billy “Moose” Fords, stands at 6-3, 225 pounds.
