Burbank 2, La Salle 0: The Bulldogs dominated play in the first half and earned the nonleague shutout Wednesday on the road.


Burbank (2-0) had seven shots on goal but couldn’t find the back of the net in the first half. The Bulldogs’ defense kept the team in the game, however, allowing just two shots on goal through the contest. Anchoring the back line was Michelle Morales, Natalie Muller, Agnes Megerdicians, Julia Marx and Dana Williams.

Burbank continued to play hard in the second half and its efforts finally paid off in the 63rd minute. Taylor Gore broke through to Clarissa Guerrero who beat three defenders and laid the ball off at the 18-yard line where Alessia Dalmonte scored.

In the 70th minute, the Lancers couldn’t clear the ball out of their defensive zone and the ball landed at the feet of midfielder Dalmonte, who chipped a shot that sailed 25 yards over the La Salle keeper’s head to put the Bulldogs ahead, 2-0.

Burbank goalkeeper Sara Rangwala earned her first shutout of the season.
