GLENDALE — With running back Zander Anding carrying the majority of the load on offense this season for the Burroughs High football team, the senior had a sizable target on his back when his squad took on Los Altos on Friday night in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Southeast Division playoffs.
If the Conquerors hoped to defeat the Indians, they would likely have to stop Anding.
Anding did his part, gaining more than 200 yards, but the Burroughs offense could do little else. In addition, penalties and turnovers proved costly for the No. 3-ranked Indians, as they were defeated by unranked Los Altos, 37-29, at Moyse Field.
Anding ended a fine career in which he broke numerous records and put up gaudy numbers for Burroughs (6-5). On the night, he had 15 carries for 216 yards and one touchdown of 65 yards.
"He is an amazing football player," Los Altos Coach Dale Ziola said. "He definitely got his share tonight and he did some damage."
