Emotions were high on Friday night as the Galion Tigers came home to take on the Marion Harding Presidents in this season’s MOAC opener. For their part, the Tigers and their fans were mindful of the recent loss of teammate Kooper McCabe, as this was the first home game since that day. A large Tiger paw at midfield was marked with a #6 in McCabe’s memory.
