  • Aurora Christian runs by St. Francis in 2nd half Dec 12, 2014 11:49 PM
    St. Francis and Aurora Christian’s boys basketball teams are a study in contrasting styles. Using speed limit parlance, St. Francis likes slow and steady city driving. Aurora Christian prefers life on the highway, revving the engine at 65 mph and up behind a fast-breaking offense. Most of the first half of Friday’s Suburban Christian Conference opener was played at St. Francis’ more methodical pace, as the Spartans ground out a 19-14 lead. But the Eagles pushed the proverbial pedal to the metal from there. The hosts sped up the tempo, powering past St. Francis to turn a 31-23 third quarter deficit into a 56-42 advantage before hanging on 62-56 for their fourth straight victory.

  • St. Francis’ Johnson earns family bragging rights Dec 9, 2014 11:48 PM
    It wasn’t a huge deal, but St. Francis junior Gabe Johnson felt slightly tickled he had something to hold over his big brother, former Wheaton Academy All-Area forward Luke Johnson, now playing at St. Leo University in Florida. On Tuesday Gabe Johnson scored a career-high 24 points to pace St. Francis’ 61-41 win over Luke’s alma mater. No longer conference opponents, they remain rivals.

  • For St. Francis’ Bobowski, name of the game was winning Dec 4, 2014 1:45 PM
    Speaking with St. Francis senior quarterback Clint Bobowski, a question arises in the back of the mind. Why not Justin or Jason or Patrick? Why Clint? “The honest truth is my dad thought it was a good quarterback name. I am not joking with you at all,” he said.

  • Peez lifts Batavia with pressure free throws Nov 28, 2014 11:51 PM
    Sitting on the bench following a St. Francis timeout, Batavia’s Chasen Peez had one thing on his mind — well, actually two. “Make these free throws, make these free throws, make these free throws,” said Peez. The 6-foot-7 senior center did just that, sinking both foul shots with 14.5 seconds remaining to give his team a 56-55 lead. When the Spartans’ Jason Sullivan misfired on a desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer, the Bulldogs (3-0) erupted in celebration after their 1-point victory in Friday’s fourth day of the 39th annual Ken Peddy Windmill City Classic in Batavia.
