the fans in attendance.
Fortunately, such ugliness never materialized, but the post-game
altercation cast a shadow on Glendale's impressive win against a
squad that advanced to the quarterfinals of last year's CIF Southern
Section Division IIA playoffs.

"Neither [Burroughs Coach Art Sullivan] or I feel good about what
happened there," Nitro Coach Steve Snodgress said. "Emotions ran a
little too high tonight."
In a game that featured Glendale's Wesley Woodcock getting his
nose broken by the elbow of Burroughs' Joey Paysinger in the fourth
quarter, the Nitros (4-1) were able to overcome a nine-point deficit
after one quarter to drop Burroughs to 2-4 on the season.
Glendale's Egiche Sahakyan came up huge in the waning moments.
With his team trailing by one with 40 seconds left, the senior hit

of free throws to ice the game.
Sahakyan finished with 17 points, as did teammate Raymond
Dagher. Woodcock added 14 for the Nitros.
Paysinger led Burroughs with 26, including 13 in the first
quarter. Four of his seven three-pointers also came in the first
