BURBANK - Ahead late, the Burbank High football team could afford to trade touchdowns with Crescenta Valley in the second half of Friday night's Pacific League game and the Bulldogs certainly gave as good as they got, and then some, in their 38-21 win at Memorial Field. “We didn't dwell on what they did,” Burbank Coach Hector Valencia said. “We just said, 'OK we've got to take care of our business now and it showed.' They definitely pounded the ball on us, but we were bending and didn't break too much.” James Williams' 59-yard touchdown run, which capped off a 168-yard rushing night for the sophomore back, gave Burbank (5-2, 4-0 in league)

LA CRESCENTA - It was a battle for second place in the Pacific League when the Crescenta Valley High and Burbank girls' tennis teams met Thursday afternoon. With Arcadia already running away with the league, the Falcons and Bulldogs have been able to distance themselves from the remainder of the other squads in league. The winner Thursday would have the inside track for the league runner-up spot mid-way through the league campaign. Bolstered by a singles sweep, Burbank took a big step in that direction with a 13-5 victory at Crescenta Valley.

LA CRESCENTA — Sidney Ortega had plenty on her mind when the ball left her finger tips in the waning seconds of overtime. The Burroughs High girls' basketball player wasn't sure what the end result would be after taking arguably her biggest shot thus far this season. Ortega got the positive result she wanted, as she made a game-winning three-pointer with 2.6 seconds remaining in overtime to lift visiting Burroughs to a 49-46 Pacific League victory against Crescenta Valley on Monday.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - With the additional time spent in the batting cage, it's no wonder why the members of the Crescenta Valley 9-10 All-Star baseball team are prepared and confident when they step into the batter's box during a game. Nearly each day, all 13 of the Crescenta Valley players spend about 20 minutes apiece perfecting their swings in the cage. It's paved the way for success during the postseason. Crescenta Valley pounded out 13 hits Tuesday afternoon en route to a 14-1 victory against Burbank in the District 16 Tournament championship game at Babe Herman Field.

ARCADIA - On the surface, Thursday afternoon's Pacific League cross-country championships appeared little more than a large Arcadia High celebration. After all, the Apaches won both the boys' and girls' team titles and claimed each race's individual crown at Arcadia County Park. PHOTOS: Pacific League cross country final   Yet, quite a few local teams made noise, both surprisingly and expectedly, led by the Burbank boys and Crescenta Valley girls, who finished second in their respective races, while the Crescenta Valley and Burroughs boys and the Burbank and Hoover girls all earned spots to the CIF Southern Section divisional preliminaries at Mt. San Antonio College on Nov. 16. Maybe no team made a bigger splash than did the Division I fifth-ranked Bulldog boys, who appear to be surging and demonstrated their prowess by knocking off seventh-ranked Crescenta Valley for the first time this season, 47-63, for second place in league.

LA CRESCENTA — In 2006, its first season in the Pacific League, the success enjoyed by the Burroughs’ High girls’ volleyball team was a pleasant surprise. Welcoming almost all of their starters back, the Indians entered 2007 Pacific League play poised to surpass the accomplishments of last season, in which they went 15-9, placed third in league and reached the quarterfinals of the CIF playoffs for the first time in 20 years. With a 25-11, 25-22, 25-17 victory on Thursday against host Crescenta Valley, last year’s fourth-place team in league, the Indians ran their league record to 4-0 and are quickly emerging as one of the top teams in the Pacific League.

GLENDALE ? It was a Little League game, but coaches, fans and players didn't forget that it was a all-star championship contest. Tuesday's 9-10-year-old softball game between Crescenta Valley and Jewel City/Foothill/Burbank prompted coaches to exchange heated words with each other, fans to get upset at each other and players to bring out the best in each other. In the end, Crescenta Valley walked away with another title, as it defeated Burbank, 5-4, to win the District 16 crown for a second consecutive year at Scholl Canyon Field.

BURBANK — While its dominance temporarily wavered midway through Friday's Pacific League match, the Burroughs High boys' volleyball team regrouped in plenty of time to keep Crescenta Valley from getting close to an upset on the road. And although the Falcons made a strong run at getting back in the match after coming alive down the stretch in the second game, the Indians rediscovered their intensity in the third game to finish off their 25-13, 25-21, 25-17 sweep just as solidly as they began.

BURBANK - Thus far in the Pacific League season, the Burbank High softball team, seen as the favorite by most to repeat as league champion, has run roughshod over some overmatched competition. PHOTOS: Burbank vs. Crescenta Valley girls' league softball On Thursday afternoon, the Bulldogs faced their most arduous opposition yet, but behind a stellar effort in the circle from junior pitcher Caitlyn Brooks and some early offense, Burbank still looked impressive in a 3-0 win over Crescenta Valley at McCambridge Park.

Burroughs High girls' water polo Coach Michael Singhanate knows the task facing his team will be a daunting one. But as has been the case all season, he is hoping this recent challenge will provide another learning experience for his players.

The Indians will open the CIF Southern Section Division V playoffs by heading to face the Bears, the Inland Valley League champion and overall No. 1 seed in the tournament Wednesday.

After capturing the Pacific League championship for the fifth season in a row on Thursday, Crescenta Valley enjoyed a brief celebration before making the trek to meet host La Serna in a nonleague match Friday. Crescenta Valley passed its final regular-season test before beginning defense of its CIF Southern Section Division V crown, as Ashley Taylor collected a team-high four goals and Elissa Arnold added two goals and four steals to earn a 10-5 victory.

BURBANK - The Burbank High and Burroughs girls' soccer teams entered their Pacific League contest with a sense of security. The security came with knowing that both squads had already secured spots in the CIF Southern Section playoffs. However, there was much more at stake for the Bulldogs, who could lock down a second-place league finish with a win over their cross-town rivals. PHOTOS: Burroughs vs. Burbank girls' soccer   Earning that victory was never in question, as Burbank scored early and never let Burroughs mount any semblance of an offensive attack.

BURBANK - The only thing standing in the way of a perfect Pacific League season for the Burroughs High girls' basketball team was one opponent. PHOTOS: Burroughs vs. Burbank league girls' basketball However, that opponent was cross-town rival Burbank, which narrowly lost to the Indians by one point in the teams' first meeting in January. But there was no late-game heroics needed by Burroughs on Thursday, as it secured that perfect campaign by defeating the Bulldogs on its home floor, 58-47, in the final game of the regular season.
