"They are just outside of being ranked and we know they are good," said Bonds, whose team posted a 34-14 road win last season against the Wolverines. "From a physical standpoint, it might be a better matchup for us.
"Athletically, it's pretty even. Both teams have a lot of speed and we have our work cut out."
The Golden Knights opened the season with wins against Arcadia, Crescenta Valley, Venice, West Ranch and Paso Robles. The Golden Knights are 3-0 at home and will wrap up a three-game homestand Friday with their homecoming game.
St. Francis senior linebacker Joey Dowling recorded a team-best 12 tackles and two sacks against Paso Robles. Teammates Ryan McAleenan and Luke Anderson each collected eight tackles.
Bonds said he expects Harvard-Westlake, which has recorded intersectional victories against Fairfax, Leuzinger, Sylmar and El Camino Real and a loss against Venice, to continue clinking with its spread offense.
"Our defense will be tested," said Bonds, whose team blanked Crescenta Valley and West Ranch. "They have a lot of guys on offense who can do things.
"We were in a lot of shootouts last year and that hasn't been the case this year. We've been getting a lot of turnovers. We feel like we need to be able to take advantage of that again."
The Golden Knights saw quarterback Jared Lebowitz complete 13 of 23 passes for 132 yards against Paso Robles. Running back Austin De Los Santos rushed for 67 yards in 15 carries and Daniel Kawamura rushed for 60 yards and one touchdown in 11 carries.
