Heading into halftime of the first round of CIF Southern Section playoff action at Quartz Hill High School, St. Francis (6-5) thought momentum was on their side, especially after David Sternau’s field-goal at the end of the half gave the Golden Knights a 17-7 lead over the favored Rebels (10-1). But Quartz Hill outscored St. Francis 23-0 in the second half to move onto the second round, while the Knights settled for a long bus ride home from the high desert. “It’s a 48-minute game, not a 24-minute game,” St. Francis Head Coach Jim Bonds said after the 30-17 loss to Quartz Hill High on Friday.
