BURBANK — It will be telling to see how the Burbank High girls' soccer team recovers from what it endured Friday afternoon.
The Bulldogs came into their latest match entrenched among the top-tier teams in the Pacific League standings, with Burbank, Crescenta Valley, Arcadia and Burroughs all within striking distance of one another.
Burbank was hoping to stay in the midst of that elite pack and knock Arcadia down a few pegs when it hosted the Apaches Friday.
But a lackluster performance by the Bulldogs did just the opposite, as it was Arcadia that turned back Burbank with a 1-0 victory.
The loss puts Burbank at 11-7-1, 6-2-1 in league and Arcadia improves to 7-6-2, 7-1-1. Crescenta Valley (10-3-1, 8-1) remains in first place in league with Burroughs (10-11-1, 7-2) in fourth.
