So, St. Francis Coach John Jordan left St. Francis' gymnasium for his Pasadena residence after the Golden Knights lost their third consecutive contest. When Jordan arrived home, he sat on his living-room sofa to watch the tape of the Maryland-Duke men's basketball game on ESPN.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — For the moment, the one-time rivalry will remain dormant. But if Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball Coach Shawn Zargarian and St. Francis Coach John Jordan could have their way, the intercity rival would bloom sooner rather than later. Instead, the Falcons and Golden Knights will only face off in an occasional summer league contest. Crescenta Valley got the better of St. Francis on Friday night with a 50-38 victory in the eighth annual Vaquero Summer Tip-Off Classic at Glendale Community College.

Once again windows were blacked out and lighting and camera equipment were rolled into Montrose Bowl on Honolulu Avenue. This time a romantic drama was being filmed by students from the American Film Institute in Los Angeles. The Montrose location was the backdrop of two lovers who had been separated for 20 years only to be reunited at the bowling alley. "The film will only be viewed at AFI," said producer Ryan Canon. This is part of a short cycle film program. The films are approximately 15 minutes long and are judged by the instructor on a pass or fail grade, Canon added.

Charles Rich Kevin Peterson might be the best-suited figure to shape the persona of the St. Francis High basketball team. The Golden Knights have begun the season with a bang thanks to the aggressive play of Peterson, a 6-foot-5 junior forward who looked in mint condition. He had the numbers Tuesday night to support the Golden Knights yet again. Peterson had eight points, 10 rebounds and four steals to lead St. Francis to a 62-47 win against Western Christian in a pool-play game of the Village Christian Tournament.

PASADENA — The St. Francis High basketball team might have had to wait later than most teams to play its first game of the season. That didn’t stop the Golden Knights from making a resounding statement once they finally tipped off. St. Francis made 16 three-pointers en route to an easy 84-46 victory against South Bay Lutheran on Thursday afternoon in an opening- round contest of the Pasadena Poly Basketball Tournament. The Golden Knights will next face Viewpoint or Maranatha in a tournament semifinal game at 6 p.m. today.

PASADENA — When the long-range shots are falling for the St. Francis High basketball team, its shot at winning rises. When those shots aren't dropping, it's the Golden Knights who are falling. It's a simple formula, but one that is no doubt a running theme for a Golden Knights squad defined as a shooting team. On Thursday in the opening round of the Poly Basketball Tournament, St. Francis knocked down 21 three-pointers and was victorious. In Friday's semifinal game against Marshall Fundamental, the Golden Knights hit just seven three-balls and didn't hit a field goal over the last 3:50 of the game en route to a 76-67 loss.

Erik Boal ST. FRANCIS HIGH -- Last season, the St. Francis High boys' basketball team didn't earn its 10th win until after its Mission League schedule was already completed. This year, that goal took only half as much time. Led by Michael Jenkins' game-high 18 points, the Golden Knights posted their second victory in three nights as they defeated Crespi, 63-54, Saturday at St. Francis High. "Getting the 10 wins is huge for us," said St. Francis Coach John Jordan, whose squad finished 10-16 a year ago and was not selected to the CIF Southern Section Division IIIA playoffs as an at-large team despite meeting the 10-win criteria.

That was the scene about every two minutes Thursday night at St. Francis High, but no matter what five players Golden Knight Coach John Jordan had out on the floor, it worked as St. Francis routed Rundle College High, 94-41, in a Pool E contest in the Brown Regional of the La Canada Holiday Classic.

From the Pacific League to All-Area to All-CIF honors, high school accolades stemming from their exploits in the world of water polo have come in abundance for Jordan Card and Adrienne Ingalla. But both Cal Lutheran water polo players were quick to admit their surprise, if not shock, when they were recently bestowed NCAA All-American recognition. Card, a Burbank High graduate, and Ingalla, a Crescenta Valley product, were named to the 2013 Assn. of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches NCAA Division III All-American team.

BURBANK - After suffering an eye-opening loss July 11, the Glendale High boys' basketball team put it behind them. Motivated to improve, the Nitros had four productive practices. The Nitros translated their good play in practice to their most recent game, using crisp passing and taking high-percentage shots to defeat Long Beach Jordan, 52-31, on Thursday night in a Burbank High Summer League contest. “We were able to execute well,” said Glendale Coach Steve Snodgress, who got a team-high 15 points from center Arthur Terzyan.

WESTCHESTER - There was something common and something rare in the Crescenta Valley-Foothill Junior All-Star softball team's victory over Victorville that advanced it to the championship round of the Southern California Division III Tournament. What was familiar to the CVFH fans was their team's offense, which not only stayed hot with 14 hits, but took an early lead as it usually has over the past two weeks in the 9-0 victory at Kent D. Mace Field in Westchester. The rare occurrence for CVFH was the shutout from pitcher Jordan Lousararian, who stayed in for all seven innings instead of being subbed out after four innings for reliever Adela Alatraca, which CVFH's coaching staff has routinely done during his team's run. "They couldn't figure her out so I figured I'm going to ride this horse," Coach Will Thayer said of his decision to stick with Lousararian.

It's doesn't happen very often that a player on a team that finished fourth in league earns the league's top honor. Although the Burbank High girls' water polo team didn't place among the top three in the Pacific League this past season, a Bulldogs player was voted the most valuable player. Senior utility Jordan Card was named the Pacific League Player of the Year. "I was surprised when I was told that I won it," said Card, a four-year standout. "I know there are other good players on other teams, but I think I've worked really hard for it and I'm just glad that the other coaches hopefully saw that in me. " Card broke the Burbank single-season goal record with 132. In addition, she also had 68 steals, 22 assists and 15 blocks.

GLENDALE — Through the first two rounds of the CIF Southern Section Division I playoffs, the St. Francis High and Long Beach Jordan boys’ soccer teams have been accustomed to playing tight matches. It’s a safe bet to expect more of the same today when St. Francis (15-5-4) and Jordan (10-6-2) meet in a quarterfinal match at 3 p.m. at Jordan. “I think it’s got something to do with the depth of our two leagues,” St. Francis Coach Glen Appels said.

GLENDALE — After 25 years roaming court side, St. Francis High boys’ basketball Coach John Jordan has decided to give it a rest. At least for now. Jordan resigned from the post in early June, stating that he plans to at least take next year off. He will, however, continue to supervise the Golden Knights during the summer until a successor has been named. “It’s not about having to make time commitments because I’ve been blessed with support from my family,” said Jordan, whose team went 10-15 and 3-11 in the competitive Mission League for seventh place last season.

Morfin did and he’s awfully glad that he’ll hold down two separate jobs at Crescenta Valley High beginning in the fall. Morfin will teach Spanish and serve as the new boys’ soccer coach. He succeeds Randy Lilavois, who taught English at Crescenta Valley before resigning in early June so he could concentrate on obtaining his master’s degree.
