Eventually, both football teams heated up, scoring touchdowns one after another in the see-saw battle. But St. Francis stayed hot through the game's finish, posting a 47-26 win in a CIF Southern Section Division III quarterfinal game on the road.

Erik Boal FRIEDMAN FIELD -- John Sciarra made Jim Bonds a proud man Friday night. In a performance reminiscent of his head coach's air raid at Hart High in the mid-1980's, Sciarra executed the Golden Knights' spread offense to perfection against Chaminade, throwing early, often and for a lot of yards at Friedman Field. The UCLA-bound senior had his 31-year-old mentor all smiles when he left the game early in the fourth quarter, having just thrown for a career-high 415 yards and three touchdowns in St. Francis' 45-22 Mission League victory.
