BURBANK — The only thing standing in the way of a perfect Pacific League season for the Burroughs High girls' basketball team was one opponent.
However, that opponent was cross-town rival Burbank, which narrowly lost to the Indians by one point in the teams' first meeting in January.
But there was no late-game heroics needed by Burroughs on Thursday, as it secured that perfect campaign by defeating the Bulldogs on its home floor, 58-47, in the final game of the regular season.
It was the second straight title for Burroughs (22-6, 14-0 in league), which shared the title with Arcadia last season. Burbank (18-10, 10-4) finishes third in league behind runner-up Crescenta Valley (20-8, 11-3),
Not since Jan. 21 had the Indians played in front of their home crowd, reeling off seven straight road wins as part of a 14-game winning streak that swelled to 15 with the win over their rivals.
