BURROUGHS HIGH — The Burroughs High boys' tennis team had its Pacific League match Tuesday against Glendale well in hand.
The Indians needed to win just one of the final four sets on the day to force the contest to be decided on games. And if it came down to that, Burroughs had an overwhelming advantage on games.
But the Nitros weren't about to roll over against the defending co-league champions.
Glendale got a big win from No. 3 freshman singles player Nick Shamma in the deciding set to propel it to a 10-8 victory at Burroughs High.
The win puts the Nitros (7-2, 4-1 in league) into sole possession of second place in league behind Arcadia.
"I figured that if we were to win this match, we would have to do just about everything right," Glendale Coach Bob Davidson said. "And I knew if we wanted to defeat Burroughs, we were probably going to have to play our best match of the season."
