NORTH HOLLYWOOD — On an evening when the Burroughs High football team had trouble moving the ball downfield, the Indians’ defense turned downright offensive.
Burroughs tallied two touchdowns on defense, while setting up an additional score on the first of the team’s three take-aways in a 30-7 nonleague victory Thursday evening against host North Hollywood High.
With the win, Burroughs snapped an 11-game nonleague losing streak that dated back to 2009.
“I absolutely thought about that streak and am glad it’s over. What people forget is that we played Hart, Saugus and Canyon during this streak,” Burroughs Coach Keith Knoop said as his team avenged last year’s 19-14 upset loss to the Huskies. “While I thought we had quite a few missed tackles on defense, it was nice to see they had strips and interceptions and turnovers.”
Burroughs (1-1) created breathing room with its offense on the bench and the team leading, 10-0, early in the third quarter.
