St. Francis has been the school of the Pasadena area over the past decade and that didn’t change Friday as the Golden Knights beat Monrovia, 35-13, in a battle of the area’s top two teams. It’s St. Francis’ second consecutive week over the ‘Cats after Monrovia held on for a win two years ago. Maranatha got the advantage in the other rival game Fridya, beating La Salle, 33-30. In other big games, Muir was no match for Hart, losing 40-7, while San Marino’s defensive woes from last season returned Friday and bit the Titans in a 38-35 loss to California.
