INSIDE INFO

Teams get much- needed rest

It’s probably a good time for the Burbank High and Burroughs football teams to have a week off from competition.

Because both programs participated in Zero Week games to start the season, the Bulldogs and Indians have bye weeks.

That should give the squads some time off to recover from injuries and to work on things before opening Pacific League play.

Burroughs (0-3) will begin league play Sept. 30 against Hoover at Glendale High. Burbank (2-1) will begin league play Oct. 1 with a tough game at Muir.

The Indians will be looking for their first victory of the season after falling in three nonleague games to former Foothill League foes. Along with losing to Saugus, 26-6, Burroughs was also beaten by Canyon, 37-31, and Hart, 27-10, last week.

The Indians have received fine play this season from senior quarterback Lucas Yanez.

Burbank’s lone loss came Sep. 10 in a nonleague game against Chaminade, 37-6. The team also beat Warren, 41-39, and San Gabriel last week, 44-36.

The Bulldogs looked good in the early going Friday against the Matadors, jumping out to a 37-0 lead in the first half. However, Burbank struggled in the second half and had to hold off a surging San Gabriel.

Senior quarterback Adam Colman and senior running back Ulises Ochoa played well for Burbank.
