Football insider: Petrando, Spartans push for playoffs
St. Francis fullback Jack Petrando gashed Marmion for 151 yards Friday in his first game since suffering a right MCL tear during summer camp in July.
Usually, that kind of rushing attack is a recipe for success for the Spartans, but this hasn't been the group of Petrando's junior season in 2011. In the past month, these aren't even the Spartans that started 3-0 with Petrando looking on in streetclothes.
Marmion's 14-6 upset at College of Dupage sent St. Francis to its fourth straight loss. Over the weekend, the Spartans worked to shed any snakebitten feelings about the skid, especially with road games against struggling Guerin (1-6) and St. Edward (2-5) looming in St. Francis' quest for a xth straight playoff berth.
