December 17, 2010


Burroughs 2, Pasadena 1: The Indians started Pacific League play with a positive effort, defeating the Bulldogs Wednesday at Memorial Field.

It was also the Indians' first win of the season.

Burroughs (1-2-2) dominated on offense, especially in the second half, outshooting Pasadena, 12-1.

The Indians scored in the 10th minute when Brooke Hazard's throw-in went through the Pasadena goalkeeper's hands for a 1-0 Indian lead.


In the second half, the Indians were so dominating that the team's keepers didn't touch the ball until six minutes remained in the game. A misplayed ball in the Indians' penalty box resulted in a Pasadena goal, tying the score at 1.

Instead of getting down, Burroughs battled back. The team had a throw-in opportunity 40 yards from the goal in the closing moments of the game. Hallie White threw the ball on a line into the box, where several players went up for it. Haley O'Brien, making a run from outside the Pasadena penalty box, got to the ball on the dead run and shot it into the lower right-hand corner for the winning goal

The Indians defense played well, led by Haley O'Brien, Hallie White, Hazard and Ashley Caro. Tatiana Rizzotti, Daniela Salinas, Maria Gomez, Josie Castellon and Delaney O'Brien also contributed to the winning effort.

This was the final home game for Indians girls' team at Memorial Field. Demolition of the current field and stadium is scheduled to begin in a few weeks. Burroughs will play the remainder of its matches at Luther Burbank Middle School.
