SOUTHEAST GLENDALE - More often than not, the Glendale High football team's woes have come down to its defense spending too much time on the field.
Oddly enough, the Nitros suffered from the reverse dilemma when facing Burbank in a Pacific League game Thursday night at Moyse Field, as they were flattened by the Bulldogs' explosive rushing attack and one big-yardage scoring play after another.
Burbank ran just 15 offensive plays in the first half, but made the most of them, scoring 35 points and opening the floodgates for a 56-10 victory in which three of its tailbacks topped the 100-yard rushing mark.
James Williams nearly doubled that milestone all on his own, as he finished with 194 yards and three touchdowns in just four carries, all in the first half, to help the Bulldogs, ranked 10th in the CIF Southern Section Southeast Division, erase the bad taste of last week's league loss to Muir. Teddy Arlington added 147 yards in eight carries with a touchdown and Joseph Pendelton had 104 yards in eight carries with three scores.
