For as successful as the duration of the St. Francis High football team's season has been thus far, at the tip of the Golden Knights' tongues is still very much a bitter taste left by the last two weeks' losses. Thus, when St. Francis travels to play host Culver City at 7 p.m. Friday in the opening round of the CIF Southern Section Western Division playoffs, the Golden Knights will not only be looking for postseason triumph, but to bounce back from two weeks' worth of tribulations.

CULVER CITY — The St. Francis High football team learned firsthand that speed can kill. The Golden Knights were unable to keep up with a lightning-fast Culver City team, as they were defeated 33-15 in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Western Division playoffs Friday at Culver City. "That's a good offensive football team over there," said St. Francis Coach Jim Bonds, whose team got into the playoffs with an at-large CIF bid after finishing third in the Mission League.

GLENDALE — Facing the prospect of a long winter in which to reflect on the disappointment of missing the playoffs, the St. Francis High football team received an 11th-hour reprieve on Sunday, in the form of a Western Division at-large CIF Southern Section playoff berth. What the Golden Knights (6-4) do with their second chance is now up to them, as they face Ocean League co-champion Culver City (8-1-1) Friday at 7:30 p.m. "After that loss on Friday, I kind of thought we were done," St. Francis senior quarterback Luke Collis said of his team's 21-9 regular-season finale loss to St. Paul last week, which denied it an automatic playoff berth.

It's a simple game plan that's worked positively throughout the postseason for the Crescenta Valley 9-10 All-Star softball team. Instead of swinging away for the fences during each at-bat, Crescenta Valley has adopted the formula of putting the ball in play and using its speed to put up crooked numbers. It worked again for Crescenta Valley, which posted a 9-1 win against Culver City on Sunday in a Southern California State Championship contest at Harvey Field in Jurupa. Crescenta Valley, which previously won District 16 and Section 2 championships, will next face District 58 champion Tri-Valley in a semifinal game at 5 p.m. Wednesday at the same venue.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE - Thanks to a five-goal blitz in the opening quarter, the Hoover High boys' water polo team had all the offense it would need in its home opener against Culver City. But the focus for the Tornadoes this season is on defense, and it was the Hoover defense that ultimately propelled it to a 9-4 nonleague victory on a hot Thursday afternoon. “We have a young team,” said Hoover Coach Kevin Witt, whose team improved to 3-2 after opening its season at the Conejo Valley Tournament last weekend.

Josh Kleinbaum The first time the recruiter called about a job in another city, La Canada Flintridge City Manager Jerry Fulwood said no. And the second time. The third time, Fulwood listened. He did some research. He sent a resume. Fulwood announced Wednesday he is leaving La Canada Flintridge to become the chief administrative officer of Culver City, pending approval Monday by that city's council members. The job description in Culver City will be same as in La Canada Flintridge -- the cities use a different title for the same position -- but on a larger scale.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE - Thrown right into the deep end for its season opener on Tuesday, the Hoover High girls' water polo team found it hard to stay afloat right from the beginning of its nonleague match against visiting Culver City. The Tornadoes' inexperience showed on both ends of the pool, as the team failed to record a shot attempt in the first quarter while giving up nine goals. The match would continue much along the same lines, ending in a 24-2 defeat. "We had, I think, three returning varsity players and about four returning JV players and four girls that this was their first water polo game ever," said Hoover Coach Kevin Witt, who got goals from Piouneh Garabidian and Se Yeon Kim. "All things considered, I think we know what we need to work on and I think we're doing fine.

LA CRESCENTA - Holding a one-goal lead and a decided advantage in the run of play, Crescenta Valley High's boys' soccer team saw its play and momentum wane in the second half Thursday afternoon against Culver City. “They had taken momentum in the second half there for a while,” Falcons Coach Grant Clark said. Largely on the strength of set pieces, Culver City was finding scoring chances previously unavailable. But just like that, it presented the Falcons an opportunity they were quite willing to take.

From Gardena to West Hills to Culver City, the St. Francis High football team endured a rather troublesome span of three weeks or, perhaps more accurately, 120 minutes of game time. But thanks to their final 24 minutes in Culver City, the Golden Knights are coming home. And home is where St. Francis will host fourth-seeded Camarillo at 7 p.m. Friday in a CIF Southern Section Western Division quarterfinal. “It's gonna be epic,” St. Francis senior linebacker Ricky Urzua said.

Unfortunately for Crescenta Valley, its attempt to come back fell short in an 18-14 loss against Tri-Valley in a Southern California Championship Divisional winner's-bracket game at Harvey Field.

Glendale City Councilman Ara Najarian is in a fight for his seat on the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority after failing to get appointed for another term - an outcome he claimed was orchestrated by officials upset by his opposition to a 710 Freeway extension through Pasadena. Several representatives for San Gabriel Valley - who've been pushing to connect the 710 and 210 freeways - declined to support Najarian at a procedural vote last week of the City Selection Committee, a group of elected officials from cities throughout Los Angeles County that send nominations for confirmation to the MTA board.
