ARCADIA - Pulled hamstrings, a broken leg, a torn ACL, a sprained knee and injured shoulders are just some of the injuries the Burroughs High girls' soccer team has had to deal with in recent weeks. Things got even worse for the Indians on Tuesday when junior Danielle Tilton, the team's leading scorer, had to make a trip to the emergency room after injuring her knee against Hoover. Throw in a starter who was sidelined with an illness and Burroughs was undermanned and banged up when it faced off Wednesday against the first-place team from the Pacific League - Arcadia.

BURBANK - The Burroughs High girls' basketball team entered its Friday cross-town rivalry game with Burbank riding a seven-game winning streak. In addition, the team had also won its first six Pacific League contests of the campaign. Despite the recent success, Indians Coach Vicky Oganyan was uneasy prior to the contest. "It's the rivalry; you just never know," she said. The coach had reason to be apprehensive. The Bulldogs battled and, despite felling behind early after a horrendous first quarter in which they scored just two points, took the lead in the fourth quarter.

BURBANK - Before meeting their respective rivals for the first time this season, the Glendale and Burbank high girls' basketball teams met in a key Pacific League match-up on Tuesday. Going into the contest, the Nitros trailed the Bulldogs by one game for the coveted fourth-place spot in the standings, but after the game at Burbank High was settled, the Bulldogs created more separation while inching toward the top with a 54-38 victory. “We came out and did what we needed to do,” said Bulldogs Coach Bruce Breeden, whose team was paced by Yazzy Sa'Dullah's 22 points.

ARCADIA - Four games into the Pacific girls' soccer season, Arcadia High and Burroughs were the only two teams remaining without a defeat in league play. Next on the schedule was a head-to-head meeting between those schools with first place on the line. Arcadia would come in with four wins, hosting Burroughs, close behind the Apaches with three wins and one tie. The game was to take place Friday afternoon at the Civic Center Athletic Field, where the Apaches edged the Indians 2-1 last season, but when it was slated to begin the field was empty and not a person was at the facility in front of the Arcadia City Hall.

BURBANK - For the second straight season, Burroughs High and Arcadia look to be the top two teams battling for the Pacific League championship. After sharing the league title last year, the Indians and Apaches are again at it this campaign. The two entered Friday's league matchup deadlocked at the top of the standings, as the teams were also the only remaining undefeated league squads. After enjoying a lead early on, Burroughs was able to endure several comeback attempts by Arcadia to eventually walk away with a 63-54 victory at home.

BURBANK - It's certainly been an exhausting week for the Burbank High and Hoover boys' basketball teams. Entering Friday night's Pacific League contest between the two programs, the Bulldogs and Tornadoes had already been involved in overtime games earlier in the week. In addition, Burbank and Hoover were taking part in their third league games in five days. Richard Elmoyan had enough energy in the tank to complete the grueling week. Elmoyan scored 12 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter to power host Burbank to a 60-49 victory.

BURBANK - The first time the Burroughs High girls' water polo team took on cross-town rival Burbank earlier in the season in a Burbank Tournament contest, the Indians lost in overtime. In the teams' second meeting Thursday in a Pacific League contest at Burbank, it wasn't as close. Paced by a big third quarter, the Indians avenged the earlier loss by posting an 11-5 victory. "We have improved a lot as a team since the first time we played them," Burroughs Coach Michael Singhanate said.

BURBANK - In his previous four seasons coaching the Burroughs High boys' basketball program, Adam Hochberg had never beaten powerhouse and Pacific League-champion mainstay Pasadena. "My first year four years ago, we weren't anywhere near the team Pasadena was and we had a five-point lead on them and we blew it and lost," Hochberg said. "We just blew that game and it's always been in the back of my mind. " The coach might just be able to clear his mind of that unfortunate memory after his team's performance Wednesday against the Bulldogs.

ARCADIA - Despite trailing host Arcadia through the final three quarters Friday, the Burbank High girls' basketball team shill held out hope that it could win the Pacific League contest. The Bulldogs were able to whittle what was a 15-point deficit with just over three minutes remaining in the game down to a seemingly manageable eight points just under the two-minute mark. At that point, it appeared the Bulldogs had momentum in their side. But Burbank missed some easy shots late, sealing its fate.
