Tatnall mounted a huge fourth-quarter rally to down Academy of the New Church (Pa.) 24-20 on Thursday afternoon.
The Hornets (1-1) trailed 20-6 entering the final stanza, when they scored 18 unanswered points.
The outburst began with Tyler Taschner’s 66-yard touchdown pass to fullback Brandon Goodge and continued with touchdown runs of 10 and 40 yards by Austin Edge.
Taschner and Goodge also hooked up on a 57-yard yard scoring toss in the first quarter as the Hornets took an early lead.
But the Lions scored in the second quarter to take an 8-6 halftime lead and then added to two third-quarter touchdowns, the last coming on a 33-yard fumble return.
