BURBANK — If there was a good time for the Crescenta Valley High softball team to get to a Burroughs High squad that was reeling, Tuesday’s Pacific League contest was the perfect opportunity.
The Indians were fresh off a loss last week to rival Burbank. To make matters worse, the team was without its all-league starting catcher after she was thrown out of the game against the Bulldogs and was forced to sit out the contest against the Falcons. She was one of four players missing from the Burroughs roster for various reasons Tuesday.
With both teams tied for second in league, it was a chance for Crescenta Valley to make a move.
However, Burroughs was steadfast, as it used two big innings to turn back the Falcons, 10-4, in a game at Olive Park.
