Good Knight, Wolverines

Big night for Greg Dulcich and the Golden Knights.

By Alex Gonzalez

(La Canada) The St. Francis offense, led by Darius Perrantes and Greg Dulcich compiled 601 total yards of offense in the Golden Knights 77-27  win against Harvard-Westlake Thursday night at Friedman Field.

Scoring early and often, St. Franks scored their first 14 points on four plays. Perrantes connected with Elijah Washington running the out and he took it the rest of the way for the 67-yard touchdown. On the Knights’ next possession, Perrantes found Gabriel Grbavac alone in the middle of the field who walked into the end zone.

St. Francis added two more scores before Wolverine quarterback Jameson Wang dumped it to Cameron Jones who weaved his way to the end zone from 68 yards out. However, they missed the point after attempt.

On their next possession, Harvard-Westlake pulled a fast one on the Knight defense when Wang connected on a tackle eligible who bulldozed his way for the 24-yard score.

After the touchdown, the Wolverines upped their score to 13, trailing the Knights 28-13 with 9:19 left in the second quarter.

St. Francis was able to punch back with two more scoring drives. Perrantes hooked up with Dulcich on a 4-yard slant and Kevin Armstead received a hand off and found the end zone from 12-yards out.

The Wolverines were able to retaliate with a touchdown of their own on their ensuing possession but the Knights fired back with three more scores including a 50-yard bomb from Perrantes to Dulcich before the halftime horn.

After intermission, the scoring continued when Armstead bounced his way to the end zone with 4:12 left in the third. Loyal Terry scored Harvard-Westlake’s final touchdown of the night, setting the score at 63-27.

With a running clock in the fourth, St. Franks added two more touchdowns before the contest ended.

With the win, the Knights stay undefeated on the year and host Cathedral next Friday night.

With the loss, the Wolverines even their league record at 2-2 and host La Salle next Friday.

    So help me understand the concept of pouring it on. If St. Francis beats a 7-1 league team by 50 it is considered pouring it on?

    However, when the Phantoms outscore hapless opponents by the scorae listed below do we consider that pouring it on? Please clarify why St. Francis is criticized and Cathedral, who has a history of scheduling inferior non league opponents, is celebrated after these wins?

    Perhaps I don’t understand the concept of what constitutes “pouring it on” and I appreciate your assistance in helping me figure this out.

    Cathedral 63 Lynwood 0 (only 50-0 at the half)
    Cathedral 56 Harvard Westlake 0 (42-0 after 3)
    Cathedral 61 Muir 7 (Cathedral up 47-0 at the end of 3 and puts up 14 more in Q4)
    Cathedral 83 Washington 0 (56-0 at the half)
    Cathedral 66 Verbum Dei 0

    @D1 Fan:

    St. Francis poured it on HW? Rest assured Bonds did not “pour it on”. Yes, it was 56-20 at the half but rest assured the SF starters did not play the second half. HW is just not that good of a team. SF put 21 points on HW in the 2nd half. The same as Cathedral did on HW. Did Cathedral pour it on?

    I can’t wait to hear all the Cathedral excuses this Saturday after SF takes it to Cathedral.

    Don’t worry though, after the Phantoms get eliminated early in the playoffs they can start working on defending all their 7 on 7 championships.

    There was no problems last night. Cathedral played a lot of players and Salesian was not the same. They are real bad and should be back in D13 real soon. St. Francis poured it on Harvard Westlake. They got tired having a small roster and St. Francis took no mercy. The Phantoms have to limit mistakes to come out with a win. Once a Phantom always a Phantom.

    I think the most important thing about this game between salesian-cathedral is making sure nobody get ejected. Coaches should make an understanding with the umpire crew. Salesian is the beach from last year. May sportsmanship shine.

    I agree. Last week the Phantoms scored all of their 49 points in the first half against La Salle and coasted in the 2nd half. Tonight’s game against Salesian should not be taken for granted. Cathedral will win easily but they have got to work on the penalties. Way too many. Make sure no one gets hurt because St. Francis is looking to avenge last year’s loss. Looking forward to next week’s showdown and congrats to Coach Pearson on his Coach of the Week. “Once a PHANTOM, Always a PHANTOM”!!!

    No call for St. Francis to pour on the points like this; better to concentrate on limiting HW’s scoring. Defense will be at a premium next week vs. Cathedral and all through the playoffs.
