BURBANK -- A good start, mixed with mistake-free football was needed for the Bellarmine-Jefferson High football  team to stay competitive with Salesian in its Santa Cruz League opener Saturday night, as the Mustangs entered the game ranked No. 4 in the CIF Southern Section Northeast Division. The Guards got off to a good start, but it was quickly marred by a miscue on special teams, which gave Mustangs standout quarterback Jihad Vercher the ball in good scoring position.

BURBANK - Burroughs High was one of three Pacific League teams undefeated in league after its first two league contests. The Indians got there with a thrilling second-half comeback against Crescenta Valley last week. However, on Friday, to remain unblemished, Burroughs would have to take down defending champion Muir, which had outscored its first two league opponents by 72 points in blowout victories. “We knew how good they were and that we had to play above perfect football to even be in the mix with them,” Burroughs Coach Keith Knoop said of the Mustangs.

BURBANK - Burroughs High's boys' basketball team was the team to beat after the first half of the Pacific League season. Not only were the Indians in first place, but they were undefeated. However, in the second half of league, Burroughs has been eliminated from title contention and the Indians are just trying to hang on for victories Although the Indians battled in their league game Tuesday against Muir, they came up short again - which has been the theme for the squad during the second half of league play.

BURBANK - There was a sense of urgency for the Burbank High football team heading into Friday's Pacific League showdown with Muir. PHOTOS: Burbank vs. Muir football With a heartbreaking overtime loss to Crescenta Valley last week in league action, the Bulldogs knew they couldn't afford another loss if they hoped to stay in contention for the league championship. Quite simply, a team with two losses likely isn't going to claim the league crown. In fact, since Burbank joined the league in 2006, no team has won a title with more than one loss.

PASADENA - If the Burroughs High basketball team needed a reminder about how tough it can be to stay atop the Pacific League, it received a huge nudge Tuesday evening. The Indians had played some tough games during their first five league contests, but had survived to go undefeated. Muir has also been tested, having to go to overtime three times in its first five contests - including a five-overtime thriller against Burbank. Against Burroughs, the thrills were provided by Muir's Dejon Williams, who poured in a game-high 44 points to lift the host Mustangs to a 71-69 victory against the Indians.

BURBANK - With a win in its last game, coupled with a loss by Pasadena, the Burroughs High boys' soccer team rose back to the top of the Pacific League standings. But to ensure that they stayed there, the Indians would have to beat a scrappy fourth-place Muir squad that had won three straight contests. The perch atop the league seemed perilous, as Burroughs trailed at the break, but the Indians got two second-half goals from striker Milosh Petko to pull out a 2-1 victory Tuesday afternoon at Memorial Field.

BURROUGHS HIGH — The Burroughs High girls' basketball team knew what to expect from Muir when the teams met Wednesday in a Pacific League game. The host Indians braced themselves for an opponent that played lockdown defense, had its share of solid scores and could put up points in bunches, as evidenced by the 100 the Mustangs dropped against Hoover last week. Despite the advanced knowledge, Burroughs had no answer for its challenger, as the Mustangs frustrated the Indians with their defense, limited their opponent's shot attempts and even threw in some long-range offerings.

PASADENA - The Muir High girls' basketball team did something Monday against Burbank that it hadn't done all season - play a game at home. Because of work being done on their home gym, the first 16 games the Mustangs played came on the road, either on their opponent's court or in tournaments held at neutral sites. Sometimes the team even had to practice outside. But Muir seemed to enjoy its home confines against the Bulldogs, as the Mustangs held on to win a tight Pacific League contest, 37-34.

PASADENA - For the second time this season, the Burbank High boys' basketball team took a gut punch from Muir. On Jan. 13, the Bulldogs fell to the Mustangs by two points in a five-overtime slugfest. Squaring off in a Pacific League rematch on Monday night, Burbank again came up short in a similar see-saw finish, losing, 62-58, in overtime. “We're very close, we play hard,” Burbank Coach Jerry DeLaurie said, “but we didn't execute well at the end.” The Bulldogs (10-12, 4-6 in league)

BURBANK - Before his team's game against Muir on Monday, Burbank boys' basketball Coach Jerry DeLaurie rattled off the list of names of the players he expected to lead the way. They were all seniors. In fact, it was a trio of underclassmen that almost guided the Bulldogs to an improbable victory, but came up just short, as Muir defeated host Burbank, 80-78, in a five-overtime Pacific League thriller. "Our freshmen did a hell of a job," DeLaurie said after the marathon game that lasted nearly three hours and included 20 minutes of additional playing time.

PASADENA - Missing players who have transferred out and possessing a young group of athletes with little varsity experience, the Muir High girls' basketball team - with just seven players - is a far cry from last year's squad that captured a Pacific League championship. Even though the Mustangs are down this year, the Burbank players and coaches didn't want to take anything for granted when the squads met Friday in a league contest. Instead, the Bulldogs realized a solid effort would extinguish years of league futility against the Mustangs.
