LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE - Halfway through the first quarter of its Mission League contest Wednesday night, it appeared the St. Francis High basketball team had things in control against Crespi.

PASADENA - The St. Francis High baseball team's summer season didn't quite end the way Coach Brian Esquival would have liked. The Golden Knights fell to Mission League rival Crespi, 6-1, in the first round of the Valley Invitational Baseball League playoffs at Jackie Robinson Field on Wednesday, as double-play grounders killed any potential St. Francis rallies and the Celts did most of their damage with a two-out rally in the bottom of the...

VALLEY GLEN — The St. Francis High baseball team sought separation from the middle of the pack in the Mission League on Friday afternoon. In mind for the Golden Knights was to beat Crespi for the second time this week, helping them gain a stranglehold on third place behind Chaminade and Sherman Oaks Notre Dame. It never materialized, as last-place Crespi handed third-place St. Francis an 8-1 loss at L.A. Valley College. The loss left St. Francis Coach Brian Esquival, whose team picked up an 8-2 win against the Celts on Tuesday at Jackie Robinson Field in Pasadena, disappointed.

ENCINO — Though the ball changed hands frequently, the exchange between the St. Francis and Crespi high football teams was an uneven one from the beginning of Friday’s nonleague meeting at Crespi. The Celts scored every time they touched the ball in the first half. For the Golden Knights, even getting a punt off safely was a challenge. Crespi built a 20-point lead on four unanswered scores by halftime and scored twice in the third quarter to put the game away, 34-0, and hand St. Francis its second straight loss, one week before the onset of Mission League play.

ENCINO — In the first year under a new coaching regime, members of the St. Francis High basketball team are learning as the season goes. One such lesson is likely that the Golden Knights can’t simply start strong, but must end that way, as well. A case in point came Thursday night, as St. Francis scored the game’s first 11 points, but mustered just 17 second-half points in a 58-45 league loss to Crespi on the road. St. Francis (8-9, 1-5 in league) appeared in control early against Crespi (13-6, 4-2)

PASADENA — Mired in a near two-week long slump, the St. Francis High baseball team was hoping a showdown with a highly touted Crespi team would help it raise the level of play. After Tuesday night’s 10-4 Mission League loss at the hands of the Celts, the No. 10 team in the latest CIF Southern Section Division III rankings, the Golden Knights will have to wait at least two more days to snap a now six-game losing streak. Crespi, which entered the season as No. 1 team in Division III, roughed up St. Francis pitching to the tune of 11 hits and capitalized on three St. Francis errors that helped prolong innings.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — Things can change suddenly in the world of Mission League boys’ soccer. After a dismal start to the year, St. Francis High picked up seven points during a stellar three-match run last week. And then came Wednesday afternoon’s match against visiting Crespi. Colored by sudden momentum changes, physical play and a seemingly unrelenting second-half downpour, the game left St. Francis Coach Glen Appels a bit uncertain of his feelings on the prior 80 minutes of action.

BURBANK - In the consolation championship of the Burroughs Summer League Wednesday against Crespi, the Crescenta Valley High boys' soccer team came out and dominated play for the first 15 minutes, creating its share of scoring chances. Despite their efforts, the Falcons came up empty-handed. That left the door open for the Celts, who tallied the game's first goal. But that goal seemed to wake up and invigorate Crescenta Valley, as it played lock-down defense the rest of the way and the offense came through with six straight goals to notch a 6-1 victory at Luther Burbank Middle School in the consolation final of the Burroughs Summer League.

Ostrom studied the potential lineup combinations and had an inkling the Golden Knights would be in line to possibly advance to the postseason for the first time since 2008. PHOTOS: St. Francis boys' golf “I knew the guys real well and a lot of it just had to do with maturity on the course,” said Ostrom, whose team picked up a 192-236 Mission League home win against Crespi on Wednesday at Brookside Golf Course No. 1 after clinching a playoff appearance Tuesday.

LA CANADA - There were numerous occasions when the St. Francis High volleyball team was asked to rally from extreme and unusual setbacks Thursday night when it hosted Crespi in a Mission League match. It appeared the Golden Knights were up to the task after they appeared to take a one-game lead after three frames and held match-point three times, but two key no-calls from the officials proved devastating in a five-game loss to the Celts, 20-25, 25-22, 28-26, 21-25, 19-17. Charles McCarthy seemed he was going to bring St. Francis (3-3, 0-2 in league)

LA CAÑADA - Victories and goal scoring have been nonexistent of late for the St. Francis High soccer team. It's led to St. Francis limping to the finish line with a playoff berth still to be claimed. St. Francis had an opportunity to curb its woes and wrap up a trip to the postseason Monday night in a Mission League home match against Sherman Oaks Notre Dame. Unfortunately for St. Francis, it remained stagnant, surrendering three first-half goals en route to a 4-0 defeat. “I'm disappointed with this effort and we had a nightmarish first half,” said St. Francis Coach Glen Appels, whose team was shut out for the fourth match in a row and hasn't scored a goal since a 2-0 league win against Alemany on Jan. 23. “We haven't gotten out of the gate early and we've been a step slower.” St. Francis dropped to 6-10-5, 4-6-1 in league for third place with 13 points.

LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE - Two things the St. Francis High soccer team has been prone to do this season combined into one mountain of frustration Wednesday night when Crespi visited Friedman Field for a Mission League game. The Golden Knights held a two-goal advantage with 25 minutes to play, but saw the lead disappear after the Celts scored twice in the final 11 minutes. The equalizer came in heartbreaking fashion - a matter of seconds before the final whistle. Crespi's Brian Quintero crossed a pass from the left side of St. Francis' six-yard box to the far post where an unmarked Patrick King-Templeton made a long run before knocking the ball into the goal to end the game at a 2-2 draw.
