MEMORIAL FIELD — If everything goes right, Tuesday’s Burbank-Burroughs track meet was the last rivalry contest run on the old dirt track at Memorial Field. “That’s what they told us last year,” Indians Coach John Peebles said. With construction underway at Burbank, and if everything goes according to plan, its new all-weather track is expected to be completed in time for next season. Burroughs’ new facility is expected to follow, as both schools will eventually have new synthetic tracks.

Burroughs experienced that defensive muscle first hand Friday, as the Bulldogs kept the Indians from mounting any legitimate scoring threats in notching a 2-0 Pacific League win at Memorial Field.

MEMORIAL FIELD — The Burroughs High girls’ soccer team will head into its winter break a little happier after its performance Friday. Hoover, on the other hand, will likely start its vacation on a less joyful note. After a lackluster start for both teams, the Indians were able to pump up their intensity in the second half to earn a 5-1 Pacific League victory at Memorial Field. Burroughs Coach Elias Garcia’s team will be off for the holidays and won’t play again until Jan. 7 in a league match against Glendale.

MEMORIAL FIELD — Fresh off its first CIF Southern Section playoff win since 1954, the Bellermine-Jefferson football team was looking to make a little more history against Linfield Christian.

Luckily for the Guards, their defense kept them in the game early, but it found itself on the field for long stretches of the second half, as the Lions ended Bell-Jeff’s season with a 26-0 victory at Memorial Field.

MEMORIAL FIELD — The Burbank High football team was trying to notch its second straight stunning postseason victory in as many weeks. For more than three quarters Friday, it looked as if the Bulldogs were well on their way to accomplishing that monumental feat.

It has served as a field of dreams for many football players and coaches for six decades. It has also been a place where more than a few nightmares were realized. Since the 1940s, Memorial Field on the campus of Burroughs High has served as the home venue for the Indians, as well as Burbank High. In recent years, even Bellarmine-Jefferson has called its cozy confines home. Every November, the field is also the site of the ongoing cross-town rivalry contest between the two schools.
