One gridiron team — St. John’s — rebounded from a potentially devastating loss the week before with a big win.
The other — Marion Local — comes off a loss that knocked them out of a tie for the top spot in the Midwest Athletic Conference race.
These two teams will meet up Friday in Maria Stein in an effort to stay — or get back — on the right track.
Blue Jay (3-2, 2-1 MAC) coach Todd Schulte doesn’t know if it’s such a good thing that the Flyers (4-1, 2-1 MAC) are coming off a loss.
“Many times, that just makes you step back and re-evaluate things. You don’t want it to happen again, so you work a little harder and prepare a little better; I expect them to be very ready to play us,” Schulte explained. “What stands out for Marion is their quarterback, Adam Bertke. They have gone to more of a spread attack because of his abilities back there, either running or throwing. They have good speed and quickness in their skill positions and they have a good amount of size up front that protects him very well. Even though they spread you out more, they can still line it up in the ‘I’ and run the typical Marion Local stuff.
