North Spartans slip to 3-2
(Page 2 of 2)

James Capoziello scored Valley Stream North’s first touchdown in last Saturday’s Conference IV defeat at West Hempstead.

West Hempstead’s next two drives summed up the afternoon for both teams. Gibbs sprinted for a 20-yard touchdown on a fourth-and-15, and Hall followed with a 6-yard touchdown with nine seconds remaining in the half to make it 27-0. Senior quarterback Michael Petrizzo, who picked off two Martelli passes, also pounced on a rare Hall fumble to keep the final drive of the second quarter alive.

“It’s a good win,” Petrizzo said. “We were upset and frustrated after Seaford, but we knew we had to put together a strong week of practice and get ready for another good team.”

Valley Stream North will try to get back on track against Homecoming opponent Clarke (4-1) this Saturday at 1:30 p.m. The Spartans won three of four in the opening month, including a 37-7 rout of Malverne in Week 4. Senior running back Billy Patsos pounded out 251 yards and four touchdowns, and fill-in senior quarterback Frank Trotta completed all four of his pass attempts for 135 yards. Senior Joe White had two sacks.
