The St. Francis High soccer team, which captured the CIF Southern Section Division II Regional Championship last season, is gearing up for the start of Mission League play.

The Golden Knights, who finished fourth in league last season, will begin league play at 5 pm. Wednesday against Harvard-Westlake at Friedman Field.

St. Francis didn’t see things go particularly well for it in December.

It went 2-6, capped by three losses at the prestigious Nike Southern California Classic near San Diego on Monday and Tuesday.

St. Francis scored one total goal in losses against Brophy Prep, San Jose Bellarmine Prep and Rancho Santa Margarita.

With a new calendar year just around the corner, St. Francis Coach Glen Appels said the Golden Knights are looking to turn things around in league.

“We are pretty close to getting better, and the competition from this tournament really helped us,” Appels said. “We need to be better offensively.

“We created some better chances in our game with Santa Margarita. We did do some things better overall. We know that Harvard-Westlake will be a tough one for us.”
