BURBANK — The Burroughs High boys' soccer team enjoyed a breakthrough season last year, winning the Pacific League championship for the first time since 2009 before advancing to the CIF Southern Section Division III quarterfinals with a solid nucleus of talent.
Most of the team will be in tact for the upcoming season, leaving Burroughs Coach Mike Kodama excited.
"We feel pretty good right now about where we are," Kodama said after Burroughs registered a 2-0 victory against North Hollywood on Monday in a Burroughs Summer League match at Luther Middle School. "We have a lot going for us, with a lot of returners coming back."
"We still have a few holes to fill in here and there."
Looking to fill one of those starting spots for the Indians, who will meet Cesar Chavez, a 3-2 winner against Canyon Country Canyon, in the league championship match at 6:15 p.m. Thursday at the same location, is senior midfielder Dexter Dysthe.
