The Tech Tigers will hit the road Friday for a season-opening battle with the Sabres in Sartell.

Tech coach Gregg Martig knows his Tigers will have a battle on their hands with a team many pick to finish at the top of the Central Lakes Conference in 2014.

"(Sartell) has a lot of guys back, they lost very little," Martig said. "They should be a big, strong, power-run type team."

"We just have to go over there and see if we can stay in the fight, see if we can pull it out in the end," Martig said.

The Tigers shut out Sartell 14-0 to open the 2013 season, but Sartell got their revenge with a 32-19 win in the second round of the section playoffs.

Tonight's game can be heard live on AM 1390 The Fan beginning with the pregame show at 6:45.
