GLENDALE — The Burbank High football team scored 21 points in the first quarter of its Pacific League game against Hoover on Thursday. It didn't need much time to do so, as the Bulldogs had possession for just three minutes.
The Bulldogs added 28 second-quarter points on four drives, each of which lasted less than a minute, in an impressive offensive display.
Burbank's speed and strength were too overwhelming for the Tornadoes, as the Bulldogs ran away with a 49-0 win at Moyse Field.
“We have a lot more seasoned players than they do,” Burbank Coach Hector Valencia said. “It allowed us to do some things.”
The Bulldogs (7-2, 4-2 in league) had a dominating night against a smaller Tornadoes squad that fell to 2-7, 0-6.
Junior running back James Williams and junior quarterback Ryan Meredith led the onslaught in the first half and rested for the entire second half, as did a majority of the Bulldog starters.
