Wrapping up a summer weekend with a picnic and an evening of entertainment at the Starlight Bowl has become a tradition for many Burbankers and visitors from throughout the area. While the other two concert amphitheaters in the area - the Greek Theatre and the Hollywood Bowl - are perhaps better-known venues, there is no way they can compete with the Starlight when it comes to value. With tickets offered in the $6 to $22 range, it's hard to beat the Starlight for an evening of family fun and entertainment.

Andrew Kushner LUTHER BURBANK MIDDLE SCHOOL -- The Santa Margarita High boys' soccer team has definitely lived up to much the hype the team has generated the past three years. Over that span, the Eagles have just about blown away all of their competition, winning three consecutive CIF Southern Section Division III titles. On a rainy and soggy day Wednesday, Burroughs High found out first hand just how strong Santa Margarita is, as the Eagles took advantage of two early first-half goals to upend the Indians, 2-0, in a Division III second-round match at Luther Burbank Middle School.

Jeff Tully WHEN: 7:30 tonight. WHERE: Memorial Field (Burroughs High). RECORDS: Both the Bulldogs and Eagles are 0-1. LAST WEEK: Burbank lost to La Canada, 33-13; Chaminade lost to Paraclete, 26-21. OUTLOOK: Both teams haven't had much time to scout or prepare for one another after their matchup was cemented Thursday. Because of cancellations by their opponents in the wake of the terrorist actions Tuesday on the East Coast, Burbank and West Hills Chaminade were thrown together for a second-week game.

BURBANK VS. SAN GABRIEL GABRIELINO WHEN: 7 p.m. Thursday. WHERE: East L.A. College. RECORDS: The Bulldogs and Eagles are 2-1. LAST WEEK: Burbank defeated San Marino, 29-6; Gabrielino lost to La Canada, 22-12. OUTLOOK: The nonleague game should be an emotional experience for the Bulldogs and Eagles. In the teams' 2002 game, the contest was halted after Gabrielino player Andrew Castillo was injured following a play on defense. The junior running back/linebacker collapsed and stopped breathing after complaining of head pain during the nonleague game at Memorial Field.

WEST HILLS — Burbank High running back Marcus Hood was a marked man. And as such, the Chaminade defense was ready for him Friday night in a nonleague game at Vukelich Field. As a result, the Bulldogs had a difficult time moving the ball, and lost, 46-6. The inability to control the ground game led to a struggling passing game. More importantly, Bulldog quarterbacks Robert Linda and Keith Hoefel were constantly running for their lives. "I said that if we ran the ball and stopped their run, we had a chance to win the game," Burbank Coach Greg Sobiech said.

Jeff Tully Even Bellarmine-Jefferson High Coach Eli Essa was surprised when he looked up at the scoreboard in the fourth quarter to see his team leading powerhouse L.A. Verbum Dei. With an offensive punch that has pummeled their share of opponents, the Eagles are ranked No. 1 in CIF Southern Section Division IVA and have an athletic team that boasts one 6-foot-10 player, two 6-8 starters and one 6-6 reserve....

UPLAND ? The teams traded errors, unearned runs and leads. In the end, the Flintridge Prep baseball squad saw its season end on a disappointing note. Flintridge Prep squandered three leads en route to an 11-10 loss to Upland Christian on Friday in a CIF Southern Section Division VI first-round loss at Upland Memorial Park. The Rebels (14-7) picked up their equipment prior to meeting with friends and family members before boarding the team bus back to La Ca"ada Flintridge wondering what might have been.

CYPRESS — Tears were abundant and the mood was somber for the Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls’ volleyball players. The Guards had reason to be emotional after falling, 25-22, 25-23, 25-23, to Upland Christian Academy Saturday in the CIF Southern Section Division VA championship at Cypress College. It was the program’s first CIF title contest, as Bell-Jeff hadn’t even gotten past the quarterfinals until this season. Although the Guards might have been disappointed with the outcome against top-seeded Upland Christian, they had nothing to be ashamed of with their performance and effort.

SAN MARINO - A well-played championship game between the boys' water polo teams from Burbank High and El Segundo, that was decided in the final minutes, served as the grand finale for the 2012 San Marino Varsity Tournament that wrapped up Saturday afternoon. The Bulldogs won the tournament last season and were in the hunt for consecutive tournament championships as they led early in the fourth quarter, but surrendered the lead seconds later to the Eagles, who never relinquished it, and went on to win, 10-9.

BURBANK — Danny Casey had his share of success as a baseball player at Bellarmine-Jefferson High and Glendale Community College. However, as far as team success goes, what the player has experienced this season with Concordia University is unsurpassed. Casey and the Cinderella Concordia squad culminated the greatest season in program history with a 9-3 victory over Lubbock Christian on Friday night in Lewiston, Idaho, in the championship game of the National Assn. of Intercollegiate Athletics World Series in front of a reported 3,075 fans.

LOS ANGELES - Having had their team play in the venue last season, the Bellarmine-Jefferson High boys' basketball coaches thought they had their players ready to deal with the deep sightlines and the NBA dimensions and expansive three-point line of Staples Center. But with a group of transfers this season, many of the Guards didn't play in the Staples Center game a year ago and were unfamiliar with the facilities of the cavernous arena. As a result, Bell-Jeff had a dismal shooting performance Wednesday against San Gabriel Academy and former Providence standout Marcus LoVett Jr. In the end, it wasn't even close, as the Eagles cruised to a 66-33 nonleague victory.

BURBANK - Almost two weeks removed from its last competitive action, the Providence High girls' basketball team showed some rust. Yet, the Pioneers also showed some grit, highlighted by a defense that forced 28 turnovers and scored enough transition baskets to make up for a slow offensive effort in a 42-29 victory over visiting Vista Tri-City Christian in the opening round of the CIF State Division V basketball playoffs Wednesday evening at the...

BURBANK - For the first time in Julian Andrade's three-year tenure as Bellarmine-Jefferson High head boys' basketball coach, he will be at the helm as his team plays a second round playoff game. More than likely, the road game on Friday night will offer more resistance than Wednesday night's CIF Southern Section Division IV-AA first-round home playoff match against Academy of Careers & Exploration. The Guards made quick work of the Eagles, cruising to an 87-28 victory. “Hard work paid off,” said Andrade, who has coached the Guards to a 16-11 record and a second-place showing in the Santa Fe League.

OLIVE PARK — Providence High softball Coach Joel Curtis almost didn’t recognize the Pioneers team he was watching play in the first two innings. In the opening frames of their nonleague game Monday against Granada Hills Hillcrest Christian, the Pioneers had their share of problems. The usually potent offense was stagnant, and the normally sure-handed Providence defense was plagued by errors. This was not the team that breezed to three straight wins to start the season.

WEST HILLS — Burbank High’s defense was not perfect. Then again, one can’t ask for much more after it forced host Chaminade into committing six turnovers, five of which were in the red zone. The Bulldogs stayed with the Eagles for more than 48 minutes, and when it was all said and done, Chaminade had to resort to its field-goal kicker to propel it to a 17-14 nonleague victory in a California tie-breaker. “They had to work hard to get in the end zone,” first-year Burbank Coach Hector Valencia said of Chaminade.
