BURBANK — About all that stood after 80-plus minutes of crosstown rivalry girls’ soccer between Burbank High and host Burroughs at Memorial Field was a 30th-minute goal.
Other than that, the Indians and Bulldogs spent much of Friday afternoon’s Pacific League contest hammering each other, while also attacking the opposing nets.
In a contest that included four yellow cards, one penalty kick and several injuries, Burroughs will have a win to soothe its bruises as the Indians topped Burbank, 1-0.
“I’ve seen a lot of cool things in sports and this was one of them,” Indians first-year Coach Brady Riggs said. “We were seriously down starters because of injuries and different girls stepped up and stepped in. This is one of the greatest performances I’ve seen.”
The victory keeps Burroughs in the Pacific League title chase, as the Indians are now 6-6-1 overall and 5-0-1 in league with a road clash with league-leading Arcadia (7-5-1, 6-0) looming next Wednesday at 3:30 p.m.
