EAGLE ROCK - A lot has to go wrong for a team to not only get shut out, but to lose by five touchdowns. For the La Cañada High football team, a lot went wrong against host Eagle Rock on Friday. The Spartans committed three turnovers, had 120 yards in penalties, missed numerous tackles and gave up too many big plays in a 35-0 nonleague defeat. “I could make a hundred excuses,” La Cañada Coach James Sims said. “They just beat our butt.” A microcosm of the evening's mishaps could be cited in consecutive plays in the first quarter.

With the biggest win of its season in its back pocket, the 5-0 St. Francis High football team now has something to prove in the Mission League. The Golden Knights will take to the road Friday to face a winless St. Paul team it defeated last year, 34-13, at 7 p.m. “We're excited about moving into league this week. … St. Paul is 0-5 on the season and our approach is that this is a brand new season because it's the beginning of league,” St. Francis Coach Jim Bonds said. “Everyone starts from scratch here, everyone goes 0-0 into league.” With an average 30.2 margin of victory this year, the Knights jumped from sixth to No. 4 in the CIF Southern Section Western Division this week with a 48-14 win over Monrovia, the No. 1 team in the Mid-Valley Division, last Friday.
