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.

BURBANK - It's certainly been an exhausting week for the Burbank High and Hoover boys' basketball teams. Entering Friday night's Pacific League contest between the two programs, the Bulldogs and Tornadoes had already been involved in overtime games earlier in the week. In addition, Burbank and Hoover were taking part in their third league games in five days. Richard Elmoyan had enough energy in the tank to complete the grueling week. Elmoyan scored 12 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter to power host Burbank to a 60-49 victory.

BURBANK - The first time the Burroughs High girls' water polo team took on cross-town rival Burbank earlier in the season in a Burbank Tournament contest, the Indians lost in overtime. In the teams' second meeting Thursday in a Pacific League contest at Burbank, it wasn't as close. Paced by a big third quarter, the Indians avenged the earlier loss by posting an 11-5 victory. "We have improved a lot as a team since the first time we played them," Burroughs Coach Michael Singhanate said.

BURBANK - In his previous four seasons coaching the Burroughs High boys' basketball program, Adam Hochberg had never beaten powerhouse and Pacific League-champion mainstay Pasadena. "My first year four years ago, we weren't anywhere near the team Pasadena was and we had a five-point lead on them and we blew it and lost," Hochberg said. "We just blew that game and it's always been in the back of my mind. " The coach might just be able to clear his mind of that unfortunate memory after his team's performance Wednesday against the Bulldogs.

BURBANK - Before his team's game against Muir on Monday, Burbank boys' basketball Coach Jerry DeLaurie rattled off the list of names of the players he expected to lead the way. They were all seniors. In fact, it was a trio of underclassmen that almost guided the Bulldogs to an improbable victory, but came up just short, as Muir defeated host Burbank, 80-78, in a five-overtime Pacific League thriller. "Our freshmen did a hell of a job," DeLaurie said after the marathon game that lasted nearly three hours and included 20 minutes of additional playing time.

ARCADIA - Despite trailing host Arcadia through the final three quarters Friday, the Burbank High girls' basketball team shill held out hope that it could win the Pacific League contest. The Bulldogs were able to whittle what was a 15-point deficit with just over three minutes remaining in the game down to a seemingly manageable eight points just under the two-minute mark. At that point, it appeared the Bulldogs had momentum in their side. But Burbank missed some easy shots late, sealing its fate.

BURBANK — With the holiday break over, the Burbank High girls' soccer team had to get back to business quickly in its first game back to start Pacific League play on a positive note as it hosted Pasadena in the league opener for both squads of Bulldogs. After a scoreless first half that saw the visiting Bulldogs repeatedly threaten, the host Bulldogs finally did get going in the second half to build a two-goal advantage on the way to a 3-1 victory Tuesday afternoon over a determined Pasadena team.
