LA CRESCENTA - Sparked and backed by an unconscious first-quarter shooting display from its junior guard, the Burbank High girls' basketball team notched a huge Pacific League victory against host Crescenta Valley on Wednesday. Yassemeen Sa'Dullah connected on five of her seven three-pointers in the opening frame and scored 17 of her game-high 32 points to set the tone for the Bulldogs in a 50-47 overtime win over the Falcons. PHOTOS: Sa'Dullah sets tone for Burbank win over Crescenta Valley Sa'Dullah's opportunities to score were fewer thereafter, as the Falcons defense switched to a man-to-man from a 2-3 zone and bottled her up as best as it could, with Samantha Lamb as the primary defender, but Sa'Dullah took matters into her hands again late and scored seven of the team's nine overtime points to secure the victory.

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.

PASADENA - For the second time this season, the Burbank High boys' basketball team took a gut punch from Muir. On Jan. 13, the Bulldogs fell to the Mustangs by two points in a five-overtime slugfest. Squaring off in a Pacific League rematch on Monday night, Burbank again came up short in a similar see-saw finish, losing, 62-58, in overtime. “We're very close, we play hard,” Burbank Coach Jerry DeLaurie said, “but we didn't execute well at the end.” The Bulldogs (10-12, 4-6 in league)

BURBANK - The shots for Burbank High's Yazzy Sa'Dullah were just not falling in the first half against Arcadia. With a depleted squad, if the Bulldogs girls' basketball team hoped to pick up an important Pacific League game against the Apaches on Friday, it looked as if they would have to do so without its leading scorer, who was held scoreless throughout the first quarter and five minutes into the second. But the junior hit two shots toward the end of the second quarter and got a hot hand in the third to spark a Burbank comeback.

ARCADIA - The last time the Burbank High girls' soccer team matched up with Arcadia in the second game of its Pacific League docket, the Apaches dealt the host Bulldogs their first loss in league play. In the rematch Friday afternoon, Burbank had the opportunity to do the same to Arcadia, which came in still undefeated in league. However, despite holding on against the host Apaches into the second half, the Bulldogs fell, 2-1. "We hung in there and we played a good game," said Burbank Coach Eric Montoya, whose Bulldogs lost their first matchup with Arcadia by an identical 2-1 margin.

BURBANK - The Burroughs High girls' basketball team entered its Friday cross-town rivalry game with Burbank riding a seven-game winning streak. In addition, the team had also won its first six Pacific League contests of the campaign. Despite the recent success, Indians Coach Vicky Oganyan was uneasy prior to the contest. "It's the rivalry; you just never know," she said. The coach had reason to be apprehensive. The Bulldogs battled and, despite felling behind early after a horrendous first quarter in which they scored just two points, took the lead in the fourth quarter.

BURBANK - Less than a minute into his team's game against Burbank High, Burroughs soccer player VJ Salazar was, as Indians coach Mike Kodama would say later, where he was supposed to be. Salazar took the rebound off a missed shot and connected on a long-range goal into an open net. That goal gave Burroughs an early lead and set the tone for the match, as the Indians defeated the Bulldogs, 4-1, at Burbank High on Friday. “That first goal I just saw the rebound and an open net, so I just took the finish and scored it,” Salazar said.

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. PHOTOS: Burroughs High girls' soccer wins against Burbank High   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.

BURBANK - Before meeting their respective rivals for the first time this season, the Glendale and Burbank high girls' basketball teams met in a key Pacific League match-up on Tuesday. Going into the contest, the Nitros trailed the Bulldogs by one game for the coveted fourth-place spot in the standings, but after the game at Burbank High was settled, the Bulldogs created more separation while inching toward the top with a 54-38 victory. “We came out and did what we needed to do,” said Bulldogs Coach Bruce Breeden, whose team was paced by Yazzy Sa'Dullah's 22 points.
