Pasadena orchestrated a late drive and scored a touchdown with just 1.7 seconds left to defeat first-place Burbank, 45-41, severely hampering the local Bulldogs’ chances of wining an outright league title.

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.

BURBANK - Opposing football teams have had trouble keeping up with the Burbank High offense this season. PHOTOS: Burbank vs. Pasadena football The Bulldogs run a hurry-up offense and the players run up to the line of scrimmage to try to get plays off within five seconds. That formula has served Burbank well so far. In a Pacific League game Thursday against Pasadena, the visiting Bulldogs got a taste of just how difficult it is to get set up to try and contain the high octane offensive attack.

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.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) is moving his district office from Pasadena -- where it's been for 16 years -- to new digs in Burbank, a move that puts the hub more squarely in a redrawn district. The new office - located at 245 E. Olive Ave., Suite 200 - is centrally located in the redrawn district, which now goes from the western part of Pasadena to West Hollywood. β€œIt's pretty much smack-dab in the middle of the district,” Schiff said. His old office was only about three blocks from his new district boundary, but the location wouldn't have been as easily accessible to all of his constituents, he added.

BURBANK - There was a logjam for second place among three one-loss football teams in the Pacific League heading into Friday night's games. Burroughs High was one of those teams, along with Crescenta Valley and Arcadia, who were all chasing league-leading Muir going into the third-to-last game of the regular season. There were plenty of scenarios involving the Indians, who hosted Pasadena at Memorial Field. What was clear was that Burroughs needed a win to stay in the mix for the playoffs, and keep its outside hopes for a league title alive.

DOWNTOWN — With Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena all without permanent police chiefs, experts say a possible sea change approaches in the way law enforcement is administered in the tri-city area. The challenges facing each department are varied — a bevy of misconduct lawsuits and investigations in Burbank, a command restructuring in Glendale, a greater emphasis on community relations in Pasadena — but experts said the common thread will be an opportunity for change.

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.

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.

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 - It's not often that a goalkeeper in soccer gets to be the hero by doing something other than making a save. However, in Wednesday's Pacific League first-place showdown with Pasadena, Burroughs keeper Alberto Meir was able to pull off the rare feat with his feet. With the Indians trailing in extra time against the Bulldogs, Meir was pulled from his box on what would be a final offensive push. On a corner kick, Meir blasted a goal to salvage a 2-2 tie with the Bulldogs at Memorial Field.
