ShelFOOTHILL LEAGUE: Bulldogs' offense sputters and team drops opener against host Cowboys, 45-10.CANYON COUNTRY -- If a team can't stop the run, the pass, or its opponent on special teams, it probably isn't going to win the football game. Burbank High found that out the hard way Friday night against host Canyon in a Foothill League opener for both teams. The Bulldogs gave up 364 total yards -- 229 coming in the first half -- and allowed a 57-yard punt return to set up an early touchdown, en route to a 45-10 loss to the Cowboys.

Jim Riggio Last season, the Burbank High girls' basketball team won just one Foothill League game. And that was with three-time Leader All-Area selection Christine Kepenekian, who is now at Cal State Bakersfield, leading the way. But on Tuesday night, the host Bulldogs -- relying on a more balanced offensive attack -- doubled their league win total from a year ago, handling Canyon, 42-27. "The thing we lost with Christine was a consistent player," Burbank Coach Paul Kim said.

Jose Balderas Playing two ranked Foothill League opponents in consecutive weeks is an arduous task. But having to take on two ranked league opponents in the same week is about as tough as it gets. Burroughs High found that out the hard way on Friday night, as the Indians were defeated by host Canyon, 44-7, in a league game. Canyon is ranked No 3 in CIF Southern Section Division II. The Indians (4-5, 1-3 in league) took on the Centurions just five days after losing to Hart, 40-0, in a league game Monday at College of the Canyons.

Garrett D. Uribe Although it was a loss, one of the Burbank High football team's best efforts last season came with a six-point Foothill League loss to Canyon. At the time, the Cowboys were ranked No. 3 in CIF Southern Section Division II, and the Bulldogs gave them all they could handle, as a Burbank penalty late in the fourth quarter helped lead to Canyon's winning score. On Friday, Canyon came into its league opener against the host Bulldogs ranked second in the division, and this year's installment turned out to be very different from the 2003 result.

BURBANK VS. SAUGUS WHEN: 7:30 p.m. Thursday. WHERE: College of the Canyons in Valencia. RECORDS: The Bulldogs are 3-4, 0-2 in league; the Centurions are 4-3, 0-2 LAST WEEK: Burbank lost to Valencia, 35-7; Saugus lost to Canyon, 28-26. OUTLOOK: Time is running out for Burbank if it hopes to secure one of three guaranteed CIF Southern Section Division II playoff spots from the Foothill League. In fact, to do so, the Bulldogs would have to run the table the rest of the season, beating not only the Centurions, but powerhouse Hart, Nov. 4, and cross-town rival Burroughs, Nov. 12. However, there is a chance the fourth-place team from league could get an at-large berth into the postseason.

RickBOYS' BASKETBALL: Bulldogs have their problems with Canyon and drop a Foothill League game, 67-60, at home.BURBANK HIGH -- Lacking height, the Burbank High boys' basketball team must do the little things in order to win. So far this season, the Bulldogs have played well enough to contend in nearly every game. On Friday night against visiting Canyon in a Foothill League contest, Burbank fell, 67-60, but a lack of effort wasn't to blame. Bulldog 6-foot-3 junior forward Robert Linda did everything in his power to keep his club in the fray, finishing with a team-high 18-point, seven-rebound performance.

However, after two huge victories this week, Burbank has got to be thinking about a possible run to the league championship.

BURBANK HIGH ? For three games this season, the Burroughs High baseball team has done all it could to prevent Burbank from earning any wins in the cross-town rivalry. And the Indians have done a fine job doing just that, earning a sweep of the Bulldogs. However, after an 11-0 Foothill League win against their rival Monday evening, the Indians will now be rooting for Burbank in its final two regular-season games this week. That's because Burroughs needs a little help from its intra-city foe to qualify for the CIF Southern Section playoffs.

BURBANK - The Burbank High girls' volleyball team was unsuccessful in defending its share of the Pacific League title it earned last season. What the Bulldogs did earn, with a sweep at Burroughs in the final match of the regular season, was a tie for second place with their rivals. This meant that, by way of an aggregate victory total of four games to three in the two meetings with the Indians, Burbank became the No. 2 seed out of the league in the CIF Southern Section Division IIA playoffs, thereby avoiding going on the road to start its postseason run. So as a reward for the regular season finale shutout, the Bulldogs looked to cash in on home court advantage as they hosted Temescal Canyon in the first round.

Sierra Canyon used its healthy length and height advantage over Providence to post a 78-30 running-clock victory in the second round of the   CIF State Division V Basketball Championships at Chatsworth High Saturday night.

BURBANK - In the continuation of a classic confrontation, although one usually not contested in water, the Cowboys ventured away from home to battle the Indians. This chapter in the long-standing historical rivalry came in the form of a nonleague swim meet between Canyon Country Canyon High and host Burroughs. "Canyon is always a really, really strong team, I mean anyone from the Santa Clarita area is always going to be a tough swim," Burroughs Coach Danny Garcia said. "It was a little intimidating the numbers they brought up. I mean, they had 70 to 80 kids and we have around 65. So, I know all the kids had some big eyes, but everyone swam really tough.

CANYON COUNTRY - In its first three matches of the season, the Burroughs High girls' soccer team received strong efforts from its defense, which allowed just three goals, and didn't give up more than one in any game. It was that defense that helped the Indians win all three of those contests. However, in the early going Wednesday in a nonleague game against Canyon Country Canyon, the usually stable defense started to show come cracks. Unfortunately for the Cowboys, they weren't able to take advantage through the first 16 minutes.
