BURBANK — After snapping an 11-game nonleague losing streak last week, the Burroughs High football team felt the sting of its daunting pre-Pacific League slate yet again when Camarillo visited Memorial Field Thursday night.
The four-time Pacific View League champion Scorpions, who are ranked No. 8 in the CIF Southern Section Western Division, defeated the Indians for the second year in a row and almost matched its 37-point margin of victory from 2012 with a 48-14 win.
"From the previous two games, our offense was much better tonight," Burroughs Coach Keith Knoop said. "Special teams and field position is what it came down to tonight."
After mounting two strong drives to start the game, the Indians' offense was slowed the rest of the night and forced to punt on seven of its final nine drives. Burroughs started inside its own 15-yard line on three of those drives and saw others stopped by penalties.
