BURBANK — The Burbank High and Burroughs girls' soccer teams entered their Pacific League contest with a sense of security.
The security came with knowing that both squads had already secured spots in the CIF Southern Section playoffs. However, there was much more at stake for the Bulldogs, who could lock down a second-place league finish with a win over their cross-town rivals.
Earning that victory was never in question, as Burbank scored early and never let Burroughs mount any semblance of an offensive attack. As a result, the Bulldogs rolled to a 3-1 win at home.
The Bulldogs (12-4-3, 10-3-1 in league for 31 points) came into the contest with 28 points and were just two points ahead of Crescenta Valley (8-4-2 in league for 26 points) for the second spot in league. Even with a loss, Burbank would have finished second as a result of the Falcons' 2-0 loss Thursday to Arcadia, which secured the league title by going 14-0.
