Jeff Tully For Burbank High girls' tennis Coach Larry Lambert, he said he still thinks his Bulldog squad is the best team in the Foothill League. He holds to that opinion even after Burbank defeated Saugus, 15-3, at the Burbank Tennis Center to finish third in league. "I really think we were the best team in the league this season and we should have won the championship," said Lambert, whose team failed to win the title for the first time in four seasons.

Jeff Tully BURBANK VS. SAUGUS WHEN: 7 p.m. Friday. WHERE: Memorial Field (Burroughs High). RECORDS: The Bulldogs are 2-4, 0-1 in league; the Centurions are 1-5, 0-1, LAST WEEK: Burbank lost to Hart, 56-14; Saugus lost to Burroughs, 28-8. OUTLOOK: Burbank might just be facing a Saugus team that is not in a good mood after last week's loss to Burroughs. Opening league with a defeat might have made the Centurions mad. However, last week's result could mean the Centurions are not as powerful as they have been in recent years, and that could bode well for the Bulldogs.

VALENCIA -- The Burroughs High football team took a step in the right direction to earning a spot in the postseason with a 28-8 win on Friday against Saugus at College of the Canyons in Valencia. The teams started out sluggish in Foothill League opener, as jitters showed for the Indians and Centurions. But after the first quarter, Burroughs dominated the game, scoring 28-straight points. Up, 14-2, at halftime, the Indians firmly cemented their momentum in the third quarter with a 13-play drive, capped by a Mitch Dolfuss one-yard touchdown plunge.

Jeff Tully DE BELL GOLF COURSE -- There aren't too many sports where home-field advantage means as much as it does in golf. Playing on one's home course throughout the season gives a athlete an advantage over visiting golfers who might not know all the nuances of the venue. Thursday, in a nonleague boys' match against Saugus at De Bell Municipal Golf Course, host Burroughs was feeling right at home, as the Indians came away with a 399-415 victory in 18 holes.

Sang Lee BURROUGHS HIGH -- You'll have to excuse Burroughs High football Coach Keith Knoop for the way he's acted during the preseason. Excuse his jovial demeanor around school. The way he smiles and says hello to the student body, along with all the other happy things he does, is unlike many other football coaches. Don't be mistaken though, Knoop is as rugged and hard-core as any other coach in the area. But with the team he's got this season, it may be hard for him act sullen and stern as the season looms.
