The game honors the memory of two true American heroes: First LT. Travis Manion (La Salle), who died in Iraq in 2007; and his best friend and roommate from the US Naval Academy, Navy SEAL, Lt. Brendan Looney (DeMatha), who died in Afghanistan in 2010.

La Salle, which has won all three years, was making its 2013 debut, and is ranked No. 4 by TopLaxRecruits.com.

The Explorers jumped to a 5-1 first-quarter lead and never allowed DeMatha (2-2) to get close.
