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.

PASADENA ? The bulk of the damage done to the St. Francis High baseball team by visiting Loyola?s lineup on Tuesday at Jackie Robinson Field was mostly concentrated within two innings. But the Cubs? five-run first inning and four-run fourth were more than enough to deny the Golden Knights a Mission League win they badly needed to keep pace with the race for the postseason. The tone was set for an afternoon of struggle for the Golden Knights when Loyola?s first five batters got hits against starting pitcher Joey Malham in the top of the first inning en route to an 11-5 defeat.

With five goals scored, one would think everything would be hunky-dory. Not so for the St. Francis High boys? soccer team, which posted a convincing 5-0 Mission League home victory against Chaminade on Monday night at Friedman Field. The Golden Knights (13-4, 2-0 in league) received three goals from Nick Posthuma and one apiece from Amir Moore and Nick Swart to record their eighth shutout win this season.

The Golden Knights’ star player was on the sideline and it didn’t take a second look at a dejected Dietrich Riley laid out on a trainer’s table to figure out he wasn’t coming back in. Not exactly the stuff storybook endings are made of, but, for St. Francis, there was still plenty of time for a rewrite. One week ago, Justin Posthuma played the game of his life, but it wasn’t enough for a win. On Friday, the senior quarterback teamed with sophomore receiver Travis Talianko to engineer a gritty 60-yard drive, capped by a three-yard touchdown catch by Talianko that spurred the Golden Knights to a dramatic, come-from-behind 27-23 nonleague victory over host Loyola at L.A. Valley College.

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.

In the gauntlet that is the Mission League, St. Francis High football Coach Jim Bonds cautioned his team not to look past St. Paul. The Golden Knights certainly didn’t look past the visiting Swordsmen, they simply ran past them. Running back Austin Nieves led the charge in the absence of injured tailback Dietrich Riley, rushing for 159 yards and a score in only seven carries, as St. Francis rumbled over St. Paul, 34-7, in the teams’ Mission League opener. “That was a major concern,” said Bonds, of his team coming out flat against St. Paul (3-4)

A ?big win? was the phrase most used after St. Francis High dispatched rival Loyola, 2-0, in a Mission League match on Monday afternoon at Loyola High. It was a big win because any time the Golden Knights best their rivals, it?s big. It was big because it marked a season sweep for St. Francis against Loyola, swinging the tide of the rivalry the Golden Knights? way for the first time in a while. Perhaps it was biggest, though, because it set the stage for St. Francis? showdown on Wednesday against Crespi.
