Posed with an earlier start Friday or playing on Saturday, second-seeded Bellarmine-Jefferson High's boys' basketball team chose the former in its CIF Southern Section Division V-A second-round game at Mesa Grande Academy. What resulted was a bit of a lackluster first half for the Guards, but perhaps a needed wake-up call, as Bell-Jeff thumped Mesa Grande, 73-49, on Friday afternoon. "To be honest, we didn't play very good. Second half, we came out and played a lot better," Guards Coach Julian Andrade said.

With its two top players no longer on the team, the Burroughs High boys' basketball team was undermanned when it traveled to Placentia Valencia on Friday for its CIF Southern Section Division II-AA first-round game. The Indians simply didn't have enough talent to stay with the Tigers, as Valencia rolled to a 61-38 victory. "The guys gave a great effort tonight and I ended up going with a lot of youth," Burroughs Coach Adam Hochberg said. "We were a little careless with the ball at certain times, but I thought we executed things pretty well.

BURBANK - A pair of early goals from first-round opponent Pacifica High proved to be insurmountable for the Burbank girls' soccer squad, which saw a five-match winning streak snapped in its season-ending defeat. Lackadaisical play shown by the Bulldogs in the early stages of the CIF Southern Section Division III contest with the Mariners proved to be a factor in the two goals scored in the first eight minutes of a 2-0 loss. The energy increased, but Burbank couldn't overcome an effective defensive game plan and was on the losing end of a physical and frustrating match at Burbank High on Friday afternoon.

In the end, Burroughs was just overmatched, as it suffered a 23-1 loss to the host Bears.

LOS ANGELES - It was a dismal second quarter for the Providence High boys' basketball team. And the fact it came in a CIF Southern Section playoff game made things even worse. In the second stanza against host Salesian on Wednesday in the first round of the Division IV-A playoffs, the Pioneers scored just two points. Luckily for Providence, the Mustangs didn't play particularly well in the second quarter either, as the hosts went into halftime with a five-point advantage. Weathering their second-quarter drought, the Pioneers were able to battle back and play better in the second half.
