(La Canada) – Michael Bonds hit Gabriel Matthews on an 80-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter which proved to be the decisive play in St. Francis’ 20-13 win over Salesian Saturday night at Friedman Field.

The play gave the Golden Knights a 17-13 lead with 4:19 left in the contest. Dulles Hanula added a 33-yard field goal with 32 seconds to play to nail down the victory.

Bonds had a slow start but finished the night completing 9 of 15 for 149 yards and two touchdowns.

The game was scoreless at the half as neither team could get going offensively. Salesian eventually took a 13-10 lead before St. Francis rallied to win late in the fourth.

Salesian had a couple of golden opportunities in the first half but was halted in the red zone. In the first quarter Mustang quarterback Robbie Blosser overthrew his receiver and Daniel Scott picked off the pass in the end zone.

St. Francis remained undefeated with the win at 7-0 overall and 2-0 in the Angelus League. Salesian fell to 5-2 and 1-1.

    Salesian got robbed really badly. The soft kids at St. Francis can’t handle a much superior and more athletic team. There is clear video evidence from the last touchdown catch. They should appeal to CIF.

    We got ROBBED! You too? Let’s play the rest of the season without those terrible refs and make our own calls base on the honor system aka pick up games? I can’t think of anything that could go wrong, can you?
