BURBANK - Hits were at a premium and pitching took center stage Friday when the Burroughs High baseball team squared off against Burbank in the first cross-town rivalry game of the season. While the Indians received a masterful performance from submarine starter Cole Meyer, the Bulldogs got a solid performance from their pitcher, Randy Higgens. Between the two, they surrendered just two hits apiece. Burroughs was able to take advantage of a Burbank error in the first inning to score the contest's lone run, as the Indians walked off their homefield with a 1-0 Pacific League victory.

LOS ANGELES - While the Arcadia High boys' golf team took a stranglehold lead atop the Pacific League standings at the fourth league meet at the Harding Golf Course in Griffith Park, Thursday afternoon could have also been classified as a breakout day for the Burroughs and Burbank programs. The Indians took second with 412 points, behind Arcadia (394), but ahead of league title aspirant Crescenta Valley, which was third with 415 points, while Bulldogs sophomore Jason Apinchapong continued his strong play by tying with Arcadia senior Andrew Baek for medalist honors with a four-over 76 on the par-72 course.

PHOTOS: Burbank vs. Burroughs girls' softball That scenario appeared evident after the Bulldogs scored five runs in the first three innings of their Pacific League contest against their cross-town rivals. However, Burroughs pitcher Cheyenne Steward buckled down after some early problems, allowing no hits and just a single baserunner through the final four frames.

Drummer Ellie English and singer-guitarist Sade Sanchez won the battle of the bands at Burbank High back in 2007. Now in their 20s, the reunited duo crafts haunted garage rock with bass player Irita Pai in a psych-punk band called L.A. Witch. "When Ellie and I first met, we were 17, driving around listening to Blonde Redhead and Autolux," says Sanchez, a Burroughs grad who started jamming with English, a Burbank High grad, while they were teens. On Saturday they join Blonde Redhead, Autolux and some of their favorite artists - along with Angeleno friends Mystic Braves and Froth - at Desert Daze Festival in Mecca, Calif.

A long standing league championship drought was going to be snapped Wednesday. The Burroughs High and Burbank boys' track and field teams entered the final dual meet of the season tied and undefeated in the Pacific League. With both teams vying for their first crown in the Pacific League, the Indians were looking for their first title in 17 years, while the Bulldogs hadn't notched a championship in 29 years.

Burbank homeowners who have yet to comply with a decades-old ordinance that would require them to remove and replace their wood roofs have just a few months left to do so. Residents with exposed wood shakes or shingles on the roofs of their homes have until Aug. 14 to have them removed. Those with “roof-overs,” or wood shingle or shake roofs covered by another type of roofing material, have until 2020. The deadline comes after an extension granted by the Burbank City Council two years ago at the request of local real-estate agents and homeowners who argued that the expense would be unaffordable during the recession.
