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.

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.

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.
