Entering the season with high expectations under the tutelage of a new coach, Seton-LaSalle defeated South Park, 19-8, in a Class AA Century Conference matchup Saturday.

Quarterback Tyler Perone completed 15 of 25 passes for 121 yards and two touchdowns. Danzel McKinley-Lewis had two touchdowns, one rushing and one receiving.

After the visiting Eagles (0-1) took the lead with a Ty Washington 88-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, the Rebels (1-0) got a 4-yard touchdown pass from Perone to McKinley-Lewis. They followed that with an 18-yard touchdown pass from Perone later in the second quarter.

The win came in the debut for Damon Rosol, who joined the Rebels after a lengthy stint as an assistant at Montour.
