TORRANCE — The scoreboard in the end zone read: Torrance 7, Burbank 0. But in the moments immediately following the final whistle of the season-opening nonleague loss to the Tartars, there was one echoing refrain on the Bulldogs’ sideline — “Burbank beat Burbank.” “Our mistakes led to [this loss],” said Burbank Coach Ted Amorosi, with visions of two fourth-quarter turnovers still fresh in his mind. Added wide receiver Eric Blatz: “We beat ourselves.

BURBANK HIGH — The Burbank High football team had the opportunity to do something no other Bulldogs squad has had the chance to do in 60 years. In conjunction with the school’s centennial celebration, Burbank — which usually plays its home games at Burroughs’ Memorial Field — was able to host a rare home game Saturday on its own turf. With the endzones painted blue, streamers on the goal posts and a roaring partisan crowd, the Bulldogs were hoping for an impressive showing.

DE BELL GOLF CLUB — Burroughs High girls’ golfer Emily Tubert doesn’t worry about the competition when she takes part in a match. In Thursday’s eighth annual Magnolia Park Optimist Club Girls’ High School Invitational, the senior wasn’t concerned about finishing ahead of Pacific League rival, Katie Park — who beat her in the first league contest this season — or other fine players from Hart and Torrance. On her home course of De Bell Golf Club, Tubert focused instead on playing against herself and improving as an individual.

BURBANK - For not being in the same league in boys' volleyball, Division II powers Burroughs and South Torrance highs see a lot of each other on the court, and it always seems to be an emotion-packed encounter. “It seems that our karma the last couple years is we keep running into each other,” South Torrance Coach Kevin McElwee said. Once again, the matchup proved to be a contentious affair, as the Indians hosted the Spartans Friday evening in a nonleague contest and came away with a satisfying 25-18, 17-25, 25-22, 25-21 victory over the team that ended their run in the CIF-Southern Section Division III playoffs last year.

TORRANCE — Burroughs High played perhaps its best girls’ volleyball of the season in the opening playoff match against No. 1 North Torrance. However, facing match-point and their almost-certain elimination from the CIF Southern Section Division IIA postseason, it was the Indians’ play at the end of the contest that was far more impressive. With the Saxons needing just one point to seal the quarterfinal victory in the fourth game Saturday, the Burroughs athletes weren’t about to give up, as they contained to dive for balls, cheer for their teammates and battle for points.

MEMORIAL FIELD — At one point in the fourth quarter against South Torrance High, Burroughs football Coach Keith Knoop pleaded with his team not to get another personal foul. For the second straight week Friday, the Indians garnered their share of penalties — two of which cost the teams touchdowns — against the Spartans. However, Burroughs was able to regroup from its miscues to easily win, 30-7, in a nonleague game at Memorial Field. The win improves the Indians — ranked No. 9 in the CIF Southern Section Southwest Division — to 2-0. “We do hurt ourselves with penalties,” Knoop said.

TORRANCE - It was a disastrous showing in the early going by the Burroughs High softball team in its CIF Southern Section Division III game Tuesday against South Torrance that proved to be its undoing. Throughout the season, the Indians relied on solid defense, strong pitching and powerful hitting to notch the most wins in program history. However, in the first three innings against the host Spartans, the Indians had their problems in all three areas. Struggling from the get-go, Burroughs found itself behind by seven runs early.
