Football Game of the Week: St. Ignatius and St. Francis in ‘other’ big WCAL game

By Jeremy Balan

As much attention as the West Catholic Athletic League clash between Bellarmine and Serra is getting this week, just 20 miles south of San Mateo there is another meeting of unbeaten WCAL squads that is flying under the radar.

St. Ignatius travels down to Mountain View to take on St. Francis on Friday night, and as impressive as the Wildcats have been this season, it’s actually St. Francis that has been the biggest surprise.
