BURBANK — It was a dramatic way for the Burroughs High boys' soccer team to end its summer league in the championship game of its own event Thursday evening.
Although the Indians might not have liked the manner in which they had to win the match against Chavez High from San Fernando, they had to be pleased with the eventual outcome.
Despite having a two-goal lead in the first half, the Eagles came back to tie the contest, 2-2, and that's how regulation ended. Forced to decide the winner on penalty kicks, the Indians seniors stepped up and were perfect, giving the locals a 5-4 victory and a championship in the Burroughs Summer League finale at Luther Burbank Middle School.
The stage for the dramatic ending to the contest was set after the teams began to take their penalty kicks. The first eight players made good on their attempts, with Burroughs' Michael Conrad, Milosh Petko, Brandon Gerlach and Victor Salazar all putting the ball past the Eagles keeper.
