Burbank in Glendora Tournament: A depleted Bulldog team couldn’t

muster a win on Saturday in a semifinal match, as they fell to

Walnut, 3-1.

“We were missing a lot of players for that game,” Burbank Coach

Savio Silveria said. “We have been hit hard by the flu and that has

hurt us.


“Against Walnut, we only had one [substitute], and she got

injured. So we were playing with no on our bench.”

Carolyn Chrzan scored the lone Bulldog goal.

In a third-place match, Burbank fell to host Glendora on penalty

kicks, 5-4. The contest was tied at 1 after regulation.

Emily Hom scored Burbank’s goal.

Chrzan and freshman Allison Jackson were named to the

all-tournament team.

“I just wish we could have seen whet we could do in those two

[matches] with a full team,” Silveria said. “I think we would have

done much better with all of our players.”
