St. Ignatius Upsets Marin Catholic Football

I first wrote to Ron Greene’s blog because he posted some skeptical comments about Palo Alto’s Downtown Streets team being duplicated or syndicated to Marin. Here I posted on his coverage of Marin Catholic Football, recent victims of the marauders from across the bridge, the SI gang:

I have a Dartmouth classmate, Brian Stretch, who was an SI quarterback back in the day (1982) and is now a U.S. attorney, I think for Marin County. Also another Dartmouth footballer of our day, Greg Hulbert sent his boy recently to SI and not nearby Serra.

I am writing about Gunn of Palo Alto football for the Palo Alto Weekly, but under a pseudonym Sphinx Fitzwater II because I am running for public office and the Weekly does not want me getting too much unfair name recognition.

Also: have you seen the Hollywood version of De La Salle football, “When the Game was Tall”? very inspiring film even for us Philistines, relatively speaking.

Marin County | California

St. Ignatius staged a convincing 21-14 victory over rival Marin Catholic last Saturday, something that doesn’t often happen. Coupled with a loss to Cosumnes Oaks two weeks ago, this was the first time since 2007 that the Marin Catholic Wildcats went down back-to-back.

Our local newspaper noted that this defeat broke a streak of 32 home victories going back to 2010. From my position behind the camera, it looked like quarterback Darius Peterson (7) was the only Wildcat on the field. He threw for 102 yards and two touchdowns, and added 108 running yards. A one-man show, his milage wasn’t enough to manage a victory against his school’s San Francisco rivals. Peterson’s teammates added just 17 yards to the day’s totals.

Clearly he’s going to need more help if the Wildcats stand a chance next Friday against the Heritage Patriots of Brentwood.
