last week’s opening-season victory was a big boost of confidence.

After a slow start in the first half, the Bulldogs pumped up their

offense in the second half and easily turned back the Spartans.

Burbank should have a better challenge in its nonleague game with

Chaminade, even though the Eagles didn’t play well last week.

Chaminade has a shaky quarterback in junior Chris Turner, who hooked

up with running back Marcus Everett for a 7-yard touchdown against

Royal. Everett had four catches for 34 yards. Chaminade -- under

first-year Coach Ben McEnroe -- has an outstanding lineman, Adam

Speer (6 foot 4, 275 pounds), and defensive back/wide receiver Adrian

Aye-Darko.

SOMETHING INTERESTING: Turner had just two touchdown passes and

13 interceptions last season as a sophomore for the Eagles.

BURROUGHS VS.

TUJUNGA VERDUGO HILLS

Advertisement

WHEN: 7 p.m. Friday.

WHERE: Verdugo Hills High.

RECORDS: The Indians are 1-0; the Dons are 0-1.

LAST WEEK: Burroughs defeated Littlerock, 41-0; Verdugo Hills lost

to Oak Park, 21-7.

OUTLOOK: The Indians come into their nonleague game with the CIF

L.A. City Section foe after completely dominating their opener

against the Lobos. Although Burroughs was impressive on offense, it

was its defense that came through last week -- spearheaded by

defensive back Evan Gomez, who had two interceptions. The Dons’

biggest weapon is senior running back Ryan Carew, who has already

been offered a scholarship from University of Colorado. Carew is a

talented runner who gained more than 2,000 yards last season at

Sylmar High, earning him second-team All-City honors. However, he was

kicked off the Sylmar team and landed at Verdugo Hills. Indian Coach

Keith Knoop said he knows what to expect from the Dons. “We know

about their running back,” Knoop said. “Although he’s good, he is

undisciplined and he gets into problems some times on his runs.”

SOMETHING INTERESTING: Last season, the Indians defeated the Dons,

31-6. In 2001, the game was canceled in the wake of the Sept. 11

terrorist attracts.
