ARCADIA - Last time out in a Pacific League boys' soccer first-place showdown with Pasadena High, the Burroughs boys' soccer team found itself a man down in the first minute and the Indians had their first league loss. However, just before the start of its road game against Arcadia, Burroughs got a reprieve. Word got around that Pasadena had been beaten by Crescenta Valley earlier on Friday, meaning the Indians would reclaim a share of the top spot in the Pacific with a win over the Apaches.

GLENDALE - A thrilling and tightly contested affair between Pacific League opponents Hoover High and Burbank that saw 12 tie scores and five as the largest lead naturally came down to the final seconds.

Trailing, 57-54, the Tornadoes misfired on two three-pointers, but Argin Sarkisian cleaned up teammate Teo Davidian's miss and was fouled on the put-back.

PASADENA - When the Burroughs High boys' basketball team played defending Pacific League champion Pasadena earlier in the season, it was the Indians who brought the intensity and came away with a five-point victory at home. In the second meeting between the teams Wednesday, the Indians realized they would have to again play with that same level of intensity if they hoped to earn a win on the Bulldogs' home floor. However, it was Pasadena that came out fired up for the rematch and in the end, it wasn't even close.

PASADENA - It was one of the worst ways to start what was arguably its most important match of the season. In a first-place Pacific League battle with Pasadena on Wednesday, the Burroughs High boys' soccer team put itself in a precarious situation after one of its players drew a red card for a foul inside the goalbox in the first 15 seconds of the contest on the road. The Bulldogs were given a penalty kick, which they made good on. But what was more detrimental for Burroughs was that it was forced to play a man down.

BURBANK - The shots for Burbank High's Yazzy Sa'Dullah were just not falling in the first half against Arcadia. With a depleted squad, if the Bulldogs girls' basketball team hoped to pick up an important Pacific League game against the Apaches on Friday, it looked as if they would have to do so without its leading scorer, who was held scoreless throughout the first quarter and five minutes into the second. But the junior hit two shots toward the end of the second quarter and got a hot hand in the third to spark a Burbank comeback.
