LA CAÑADA - The La Cañada and Burbank High softball teams faced off in a nonleague double-header among area powers before returning to play in the Rio Hondo and Pacific leagues respectively, in which each squad has started with two wins. “We wanted to play La Cañada. [Spartans Coach KC Mathews] always has a real good, well-coached team and they play good, solid defense,” Burbank Coach Mike Delaney said. “We wanted to have something before going into the heart of our league schedule.” The visiting Bulldogs, ranked No. 5 in Division III of the CIF-Southern Section, came away with a sweep against the Spartans on Saturday with Bulldogs hurler Caitlyn Brooks going the distance in both wins.

BURBANK - Perhaps the smallest and yet most complex difference that separated the Burroughs High and Glendale softball teams in Tuesday afternoon's Pacific League opener was defense. Even simpler put, the young Nitros committed five errors, while the more veteran Indians minimized their one mistake in an 11-1 win called after five innings at Jack Smock Field at Olive Park in Burbank.

BURBANK - Lopsided losses don't occur often for the Bellarmine-Jefferson High softball team. A rare instance took place Friday, when the host Guards met Chaminade in a nonleague contest at Gross Park. Bell-Jeff, ranked No. 1 in the latest CIF Southern Section Division VI poll after winning the championship last season, committed seven errors and saw usually reliable standout pitcher Mia Acosta walk 10 in a 16-5 defeat.

BURBANK - With a crop of good hitters, the Providence High softball team has proven it can score runs this season. The first indication of that came last week when the Pioneers pushed across 16 runs in a victory against Holy Family to open the season. In a nonleague game Tuesday against Oakwood, the Providence offense was at it again, this time to the tune of a 22-run effort. However, the Pioneers' defense did struggle at times against the Gorillas, who were able to take an early lead.
