Don’t tell Max Garrison this, but the young freshman is already playing like a man.

And he’s just two games into his varsity career.

Tanner Tomko vs HW

What also needs to be taken into consideration is that Garrison is filling in for what we believe is the area’s most explosive running back in junior Kevin Armstead.

One week after scoring twice and picking off a pass to hold off Saugus, Garrison upped his game.

He scored five first-half touchdowns and the Golden Knights earned their first road victory in three tries.

St. Francis claimed a 48-27 nonleague victory against a former league foe in the Wolverines.

Garrison’s seven total TD’s in two games has SF over the .500 mark for the first time all season.

Even more good news for St. Francis was Darius Perrantes looked like Darius Perrantes on Friday.

The star senior quarterback threw for well over 200 yards, including three scores.

Perrantes and Tanner Tomko combined on a 59-yard scoring strike.

St. Francis will be on the road for the fourth times in six games next Friday.

The Golden Knights will face off with Mayfair at Bellflower High School at 7.

The Monsoons (5-1) defeated Gahr, 35-22, Friday night in a nonleague contest.

Quotable:

St. Francis coach Jim Bonds: “Max (Garrison) has continued to do great things, he’s a special kid and he’s just got great vision. The best thing about Max is that he’s only a freshman. We’re happy with the win as HW is a tough place to play. We’ll look at this film in the morning and try to continue to improve again next week.”

Box Score:
SF: 14-21-0-13-(48)
HW: 7-13-0-7-(27)
