St. Francis High’s Logan Johnson puts up a shot against Valley Christian Friday night. He scored 16 points in the home win.

Eighteen games into the season, the St. Francis High boys basketball team has yet to have everyone healthy enough to play on the same night. But as the Lancers showed Friday – with ankle injuries sidelining two players and limiting another – they keep finding ways to win.

St. Francis beat Valley Christian 66-56, improving to 15-3 overall and 6-2 in the West Catholic Athletic League.

A year ago, Luke Enthoven would have been no more than a spectator at the annual rivalry game between the Los Altos and Mountain View boys basketball teams. This year, he played a leading role in the Eagles’ 65-56 win over the Spartans.

Returning to the team after a two-year hoops hiatus, Enthoven scored a game-high 20 points in Saturday’s non-league contest.

Town Crier Pinewood’s Hannah Jump lays up the ball in Friday’s game. Jump scored 16 points in the win.

The Pinewood School girls basketball team routed rival Woodside Priory 68-51 Friday night, yet the Panthers were far from satisfied with their performance. It wasn’t good enough for a squad with championship aspirations.

“Honestly, I think we could have played a lot better,” Pinewood senior Akayla Hackson said. “I think we shot 26 percent from the 3-point line – not the best – and also shot poorly from the 2s.”

Tommy Resnick led the Mountain View High boys in scoring Friday night.

Friday against Homestead, the Mountain View High boys showed off the versatility that makes them such a dangerous basketball team.

Although the host Spartans couldn’t match the Mustangs’ size, their superior speed, shooting and defense enabled them to win 54-40.
