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 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 - 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.

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.
