Sometimes it seemed as if goalkeeper Justin Stahl faced the entire Loyola team himself, as the Golden Knights struggled to keep up with the Cubs in a 3-1 loss on Friday. It was the first league road loss of the season for St. Francis. ?We had enough moments, where if we had done some things better, it could have made a difference,? said St. Francis Head Coach Glen Appels. ?But they were definitely the more aggressive team.? The Cubs forced the issue on offense, attacking their own zone and keeping the Golden Knight defense on its heels all game and finding ways to challenge Stahl throughout the contest.

The group consisted of 16 boys and seven adults. “I learned that paper is made out of wood,” said Justin Hershman. “First we played soccer, before going to the Valley Sun,” said Adam Burstine. The cubs also had lunch and walked from Memorial Park to the Valley Sun offices. The visit lasted just a short time because the cubs were eager to get on with their weekend fun. “We had fun visiting the Valley Sun,” said Aaron Smernoff.

It was an easy walk in the park for Loyola High?s baseball team on Monday afternoon, as the Cubs took advantage of shaky pitching from the visiting St. Francis Golden Knights (15-10, 5-4) to an 8-3 victory in a key Mission League contest here at Hank Hernandez Memorial Field. Loyola (12-11-1, 3-4) did not have to do too much with its bats, not when St. Francis? pitchers allowed 10 Cubs batters to reach on bases on balls and two more to reach on hit by pitch. In all, each Loyola starter reached base at least once by the fourth inning, with a total of 26 base runners keeping the St. Francis defense busy.

PASADENA - Once up by as many as 16 points, the Flintridge Prep girls' basketball team found itself in a fight late at Mayfield Senior School. Fortunately for the visiting Rebels, they played well enough on defense and hit their free throws to repel the Cubs for a 55-47 Prep League victory Thursday evening. “For us, it starts with defense and creating pressure,” Rebels co-Coach Kevin Kiyomura said. “There are going to be nights, especially on the road, where our shots don't fall.

LA CAÑADA - St. Francis High soccer Coach Glen Appels has seen Loyola soccer teams that may have had better individual players, but this year's squad might be the deepest and most balanced Cubs team that his Golden Knights have come across in the 25 years that he's been at the helm. The Cubs, the top-ranked team in CIF Southern Section Division I, showed off their strength and depth in the second meeting between the longtime rivals this season. Loyola scored a goal six minutes into the contest and added two more within the first four minutes of the second half en route to running away with a 5-0 Mission League victory Wednesday at St. Francis' Friedman Field.

STAR teaches youth about ethics, values and possible future careers, said Deputy Eddie Tsuang.
