The St. Francis freshman football team ended its season with a convincing 21-12 victory over visiting Harvard-Westlake last Friday afternoon at St. Francis High. The Golden Knights finished 8-2 overall and 4-1 in the Mission League. Quarterbacks Justin Sciarra and Spencer Stephens each tossed a touchdown pass, and tailback Evan King ran for a third to lead the St. Francis offense. On defense, Joe Cardenas, playing defensive back, had an outstanding game that included two key fourth quarter interceptions.

The setting was different, but the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer team had been in the exact same spot before — up a goal on Harvard-Westlake, with plenty of soccer left to be played. But whereas a momentary lapse allowed the Wolverines to come back and earn a tie on Jan. 6 at Harvard-Westlake, this time the Tologs filled the final 44 minutes of Monday night’s Mission League rematch with pretty near flawless soccer from end to end of Sartoris Field. Katie Johnson provided the Tologs with a first-half goal before the team kept up its defensive edge and stepped up its offensive aggression even further in the second half, leading to a Krista Meaglia goal in the 66th minute, to hold off the Wolverines for a 2-0 win. “We told them it was the exact same thing [at halftime]

LA CAÑADA - As the third-ranked team in the latest CIF Southern Section Division III-A poll, the St. Francis High basketball team appears on the verge of qualifying for the postseason in a couple of weeks. However, all isn't quite steady of late for the Golden Knights. They have slipped during the second half of Mission League play and have looked to gain some traction leading up to the final three league games. St. Francis mustered only 25 second-half points and suffered a 64-57 league home loss against Harvard-Westlake on Friday night in front of a noisy crowd.

Last Friday the 13th was a bad day for local high school varsity football. St. Francis lost in overtime to Bishop Amat to end its five-game winning streak. La Cañada completely self destructed in the third quarter against Monrovia and fell, 38-0. Longtime Crescenta Valley coach Alan Eberhart resigned his coaching duties last Friday after an alleged altercation with a parent following the Falcons' 59-10 loss the previous night to visiting Burroughs. The only team that wasn't affected was Flintridge Prep and that was because the Rebels played on Saturday.

Last Thursday night at Harvard-Westlake High, the St. Francis varsity football team defeated Harvard-Westlake, 20-0, in the final regular Mission League game of the season. The Golden Knights fell to 8-2 overall and to 3-2 in league. They will travel to Downey High tomorrow (Friday) for a CIF Southern Section Division III first round 7:30 game against the 5-5 Vikings. The St. Francis defense dominated play for most of the contest against the Wolverines. Only twice in the game did Harvard-Westlake manage a scoring threat and both resulted in missed field goals.

Despite being out hit and committing more errors than host North Hollywood Harvard-Westlake, the St. Francis boys' varsity baseball team topped the Wolverines, 7-5, in their Mission League opener on March 15. The Golden Knights, who are now 4-1 overall and 1-0 in league, will participate in the West Coast Classic tournament next Tuesday through Thursday in San Jose. Harvard-Westlake opened the scoring with a run in the bottom of the first inning. The Golden Knights went ahead with two runs in the top of the second inning, but the Wolverines tied the game with a run in their half of the frame.

"I don't even know how to explain it," said senior defensive specialist Tina Orlandini of Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy's varsity volleyball team, after her team's 3-0 loss to Harvard-Westlake last Thursday. The Wolverines, who are currently tied for first with Sacred Heart in the Mission League standings with 7-1 records, played host to the Tologs, but the visitor's stay was cut short with a three-game upset, 25-19, 25-11 and 25-13. Disappointment and frustration marked the faces of the Sacred Heart players, who had previously defeated Harvard-Westlake, their toughest competitor, 3-1when they last met on Oct. 10. With the regular season quickly coming to an end, it was a significant loss for Sacred Heart, whose defense did not appear to have its usual cohesiveness, a token ingredient necessary to beat a team like Harvard-Westlake.

Spartan Head Coach Rich Wheeler told his La Cañada squad, following their 35-0 loss to Harvard-Westlake last Friday night, what the team was in for the rest of the year. ?This game means absolutely nothing. You played a tough pre-season, and now the real season begins next week against San Marino,? Wheeler said. ?You have no reason to feel ashamed. If you do, you should not be playing on this team. Wheeler continued that this has been the toughest preseason he had encountered in his 11 years of coaching at La Cañada High.

When teams play in the preseason, the games test what each team is capable of doing. In the case of Head Coach Tamar Hill and the La Cañada varsity girls? basketball squad Tuesday evening at Harvard-Westlake, it was a challenge going up against a team who had won five of their last seven league championships. Hill and her team could not rebound from a rather shaky start of the contest and dropped a 49-37 loss to the Wolverines. Overall, the Spartans now post a 3-2 record, and Hill felt that the team has to play one game to beat their opponents, and not a Jekyll-and-Hyde, on-again-off-again seesaw game.

Origin stories, especially about baby superheroes, start off with parent/child conflict. So it comes as no surprise that ?Wolverine,? the fourth in Twentieth Century Fox?s super successful ?X-Men? series, begins with cherubic little Logan flashing his good boy chops at a doting dad. Brooding malevolently in the corner is older half-brother and future super villain Victor (played by Liev Schreiber), an envious beastie boy whose jealousy of Logan is the ruling emotion of his life. So far so good and if the film had given us a few more minutes to make some sense of the family dynamics, it would have been stronger for it. One of the strengths of the three previous ?
