BURBANK - A pair of early goals from first-round opponent Pacifica High proved to be insurmountable for the Burbank girls' soccer squad, which saw a five-match winning streak snapped in its season-ending defeat. Lackadaisical play shown by the Bulldogs in the early stages of the CIF Southern Section Division III contest with the Mariners proved to be a factor in the two goals scored in the first eight minutes of a 2-0 loss. The energy increased, but Burbank couldn't overcome an effective defensive game plan and was on the losing end of a physical and frustrating match at Burbank High on Friday afternoon.

The Burbank High and Burroughs girls' soccer teams will both have the opportunity to compete in the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs, although they will have different starting points. While the Bulldogs earned a home game for the opening round of the postseason tournament, the Indians will have to hit the road for their first-round contest. “It is just a blessing to be able to play at home,” said Burbank Coach Eric Montoya, whose squad will begin the playoffs at 3 p.m. Friday against Pacifica.

BURBANK - The only thing standing in the way of a perfect Pacific League season for the Burroughs High girls' basketball team was one opponent.

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.

BURBANK - With just one win in 13 league games for the Burbank High boys' soccer team, some thought Burroughs had a gimme when it faced the Bulldogs on Thursday needing a win to clinch its second straight Pacific League championship. But the match was anything but a walk-over for the Indians. Although Burroughs clung to a one-goal lead more than half way through the second half, it was able to come on late in the contest, and sparked by a hat trick from Milosh Petko, the Indians secured a 4-2 victory that allowed them to walk off Memorial Field as league champions.

BURBANK - Whenever Burbank High and Burroughs match up on the court in Pacific League boys' basketball, there is undeniably an extra motivation to win fueled by a healthy cross-town rivalry. Although Burroughs came into both schools' regular season finale Thursday night already assured of a postseason berth and the Bulldogs came in already locked into fifth place in league and outside the Pacific's four automatic CIF Southern Section playoff berths, both had added incentive to win beyond the rivalry.

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.

GLENDALE - A thrilling and tightly contested affair between Pacific League opponents Hoover High and Burbank that saw 12 tie scores and five as the largest lead naturally came down to the final seconds. While the game literally came down to the final shot, it was in the waning seconds where the Bulldogs prevailed to win, 57-56, in front of a near capacity crowd at Hoover High School Friday evening. Trailing, 57-54, the Tornadoes misfired on two three-pointers, but Argin Sarkisian cleaned up teammate Teo Davidian's miss and was fouled on the put-back.

PASADENA - When the Burroughs High boys' basketball team played defending Pacific League champion Pasadena earlier in the season, it was the Indians who brought the intensity and came away with a five-point victory at home. In the second meeting between the teams Wednesday, the Indians realized they would have to again play with that same level of intensity if they hoped to earn a win on the Bulldogs' home floor. However, it was Pasadena that came out fired up for the rematch and in the end, it wasn't even close.

PASADENA - It was one of the worst ways to start what was arguably its most important match of the season. In a first-place Pacific League battle with Pasadena on Wednesday, the Burroughs High boys' soccer team put itself in a precarious situation after one of its players drew a red card for a foul inside the goalbox in the first 15 seconds of the contest on the road. The Bulldogs were given a penalty kick, which they made good on. But what was more detrimental for Burroughs was that it was forced to play a man down.
