The Lower Cape May Regional High School football team evened its season record to 2-2 on Saturday with a 13-7 win over host Haddon Township in a West Jersey Football League interdivision game.

Caper Tigers quarterback Connor Eckel threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to running back Pat Moore on the right side in the middle of the first quarter, and Moore's kick made it 7-0.

Eckel made it 13-0 in the third quarter with a 2-yard quarterback sneak. The Hawks scored during the fourth quarter. Lower had a goal line stand at the end of the first half.

"We played really well defensively," Lower Cape May coach Brian Hindle said. "It was a really sloppy field, and that kept the score down. We had to go for two after our second touchdown because it was too sloppy to kick it. It was nice to play a school of like size and history. It was nice to have a good competitive game. We have a .500 record now, something we haven't had (at year's end) since 2011."

Hindle said Eckel "had close to 50 yards rushing and 50 yards passing, and Pat Moore had a big day with a big run in the third quarter."
