PALOS VERDES PENINSULA - Regardless of the outcome of Bellarmine-Jefferson High's season-opening football game against host Chadwick, just taking the field was a victory after canceling the first three scheduled games of the season due to low numbers and a need for additional preparation. However, despite the use of a running clock from early in the second quarter, the Guards were unable to make it to the final whistle, leaving the Dolphins with a truncated 44-6 victory. Bellarmine-Jefferson (0-2)

BURBANK - In 12 minutes, James Williams showed off his awesome talents, from his catching skills to his vision in the backfield to his burst of speed. With his team holding a six-point lead in the second quarter, Williams simply took over. The Burbank High junior had three touchdowns in the quarter, starting with a four-yard touchdown run and ending with a school-record 99-yard kickoff return for a score. In between, he had a spectacular 26-yard touchdown reception in between three defenders.

BURBANK - After snapping an 11-game nonleague losing streak last week, the Burroughs High football team felt the sting of its daunting pre-Pacific League slate yet again when Camarillo visited Memorial Field Thursday night. The four-time Pacific View League champion Scorpions, who are ranked No. 8 in the CIF Southern Section Western Division, defeated the Indians for the second year in a row and almost matched its 37-point margin of victory from 2012 with a 48-14 win. "From the previous two games, our offense was much better tonight," Burroughs Coach Keith Knoop said.

The Bellarmine-Jefferson High football program is moving forward, albeit in very small steps. After having to cancel its first three games of the season because of preparation concerns and low numbers, first-year coach Lance Fauria said the Guards will open their season at 3 p.m. Saturday in a nonleague game at Chadwick as previously scheduled. "The guys have been working hard and although we don't have a lot of guys out there still, we do have some pretty good players," Fauria said.

CANOGA PARK - For many of the members of the Burbank High football team, they are not accustomed to playing games on natural grass fields. While most venues in the region now have field turf, including Memorial Field, the Bulldogs found themselves in the unusual position of having to compete on a grass field Friday night. Burbank made the necessary adjustments and had a seamless transition, as it scored eight rushing touchdowns en route to a convincing 65-7 intersectional road win against Canoga Park.

LANCASTER - A challenging nonleague schedule has paid off big time for the Burroughs High football team in recent years, as the team's coaches believe a challenging preleague slate prepares the Indians for league competition. Despite winning just one of 12 contests leading into Pacific League play over the course of the last four seasons, the Indians captured league championships in three of those four years. Burroughs opened the 2013 campaign Friday evening with another tough nonleague opponent in Paraclete, which is ranked No. 2 in the Mid-Valley Division.
