Burroughs High girls’ soccer Coach Eddie Garcia knows a little something about his team’s first-round opponent in the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs.
To be more specific, he coached a pair of players on the team that will be the Indians’ first-round opponent.
Burroughs will take on host Flintridge Prep at 5 p.m. Thursday in a playoff opener.
“I coached two of the girls on that team,” said Garcia, who is also a club coach. “I also know that [Prep] is a very good program and they usually have their share of good players. It’s a good first-round match because we don’t have to travel very far.”
Flintridge Prep is from La Cañada.
The Indians (13-11-2) are coming off a regular season in which they stayed in contention for a Pacific League championship until the final two matches. Burroughs ended up placing third in league behind champion Arcadia and runner-up Crescenta Valley.
