LA CRESCENTA — As if one overtime wasn't enough, the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team got a second chance to revive its flagging offense in Friday night's Pacific League home opener against Burbank.
The Falcons, who went more than half the fourth quarter without scoring and didn't make a field goal in the first overtime session, made good in the second overtime period with 11 points to outlast a relentless and aggressive Bulldogs squad, 69-66, and remain unbeaten in league.
"It didn't feel like the second game of league," said Falcons Coach Shawn Zargarian, whose team improved to 10-5 and 2-0 in league. "That game was physical, double overtime, it was just a good, intense game. Burbank [was] coming in 0-1 [in league] and we were coming in 1-0, the last three years we've tied with Burbank in league, so it feels like a playoff atmosphere and we were fortunate to pull it off in the end."
