NEW ORLEANS — The Holy Cross Tigers defeated rival Chalmette 51-13 Saturday afternoon at Tad Gormley Stadium.

The teams were neck-and-neck in the first half with the tigers taking a 14-13 lead into the break.

Holy Cross improves to 2-1 with the win Saturday while Chalmette falls to 1-2.

The Tigers play Rummel next Saturday at Joe Yenni Stadium.

Kickoff is set for 2 p.m.
