SOUTHEAST GLENDALE - The Burbank High football team saw a pretty good thing working for itself Thursday night, as it amassed rushing yards at will. So rather than tinkering with other scoring options, like passing, the Bulldogs continued to pound the ball all night to the tune of a 56-21 Pacific League-opening win against visiting Glendale at Moyse Stadium. The field is located on the campus of Glendale High, but Burbank played like it was on its own. The Bulldogs (2-2, 1-0 league)

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — After nearly two complete years as the leader of the Nitros, Glendale High football Coach Alan Eberhart is still trying to teach his team how to win. On one too many occasions, the Nitros have held a second-half lead only to lose it because of miscues. It happened once again Friday against Pasadena. Glendale led by a point late in the third quarter, but committed untimely penalties, its offense stalled and its defense couldn't stop the Bulldogs' running game in a 26-13 Pacific League setback at Moyse Field.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — While unable to completely neutralize the Muir High football team's explosive offense during the first half of Friday night's Pacific League game at Moyse Field, Glendale did a pretty effective job of containing it. That alone was enough to keep the Nitros in the game after winning the possession battle and holding Muir to two scores in the first half, and over halfway through the third quarter they still faced a...

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — Slipping straight through the grasp of Glendale High and right into the lap of Crescenta Valley. While that describes a game-changing muffed punt return from Friday night's Pacific League football game at Moyse Field, it's also a fitting synopsis of how the Falcons were able to take advantage of a momentum-switching play early in the second half to turn a tie game into a 35-14 victory. "It changed the whole game," first-year Crescenta Valley Coach Paul Schilling said of Alec Traber's muffed-punt recovery on the Nitros' 19-yard line with just under four minutes gone by in the third quarter, a play that set up a go-ahead touchdown and got the Falcons' sluggish offense rolling to the tune of four straight unanswered touchdowns.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — The Burbank High football team started off Thursday night's Pacific game against Glendale with a rhythmic 60-yard touchdown drive, but it's what the Bulldogs did next that really set the tone for what would snowball into a 56-8 blowout at Moyse Field. An onside kick — with less than three minutes elapsed in the first quarter — had the same effect on the Nitros that it did on just about everyone else in the stadium, utter surprise. It was recovered by the Bulldogs at the Nitros 49-yard line and four plays and 1:10 later Burbank led by two touchdowns.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — The La Cañada High football team ran a simple offense against Glendale on Friday. The Spartans had quick handoffs to their fullbacks, had quarterback rollouts and options, and stuck with a basic offense throughout the night. And the Nitros couldn't stop it. The Nitros knew that La Cañada liked to run, but it didn't matter. As Glendale Coach Alan Eberhart put it, the nonleague contest was simply about "tackling," and the Nitros couldn't do enough of it. La Cañada built a 27-point lead in the first half and gave up 17 straight before holding off the Nitros for a 40-17 home win. "La Cañada is bigger and stronger than we are," Eberhart said.

SOUTH PASADENA — Unfortunately for the Glendale High football team, its game on Friday night at Solari Stadium in South Pasadena had all the makings of another long night for the Nitros. South Pasadena easily got out to a two-touchdown lead in the first quarter and it looked like the Nitros were going to get steamrolled for the second week in a row. Glendale went down swinging though as it came down to the last minute, as the Tigers won 27-21. It was an emotional night for the Nitros coaching staff, who were all close with former Crescenta Valley Coach Gordy Warnock, who died on Wednesday.

BURBANK — Since the start of the Pacific League, Burroughs High football Coach Keith Knoop has been telling his team that it has to knock down "a door at a time" in order to achieve its goal of winning the league title. The Indians broke down "Door Number Four" on Thursday night. It took them a while to put away Glendale, though. The Nitros played keep-away from the Indians for the first half, controlling possession for more than 18 minutes of the half. The strategy worked, as Glendale trailed by just eight at the half.

ARCADIA — First halves haven't been the problem this season for the Glendale High football team. Seconds halves are an entirely different situation. It's been a consistent theme for the Nitros and Friday night proved to be another chapter in the never-ending saga. Glendale stayed close for the first half, but then surrendered 28 second-half points in a 49-14 Pacific League loss against host Arcadia on Friday night. The Nitros dropped to 0-9, 0-6 in league with a regular-season finale against cross-town rival Hoover next Friday at Moyse Field.

GLENDALE - It's now four consecutive wins against Hoover High for a Glendale football team that has turned a rivalry between two programs in the same city into a one-sided domination. For the 11th time since 2000, the Nitros rang the “Victory Bell,” the annual trophy awarded to the winner of the Glendale-Hoover game, and celebrated with their teammates following a 49-6 Nitros victory on Friday at Moyse Field in the Pacific League and regular season finale for both teams. “We wanted to keep the bell,” said Glendale quarterback Kevin Felix, a senior who helped his team notch a 44-13 win last year.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE - When it came down to doubles, the Hoover High boys' tennis team was most certainly in trouble when it faced Glendale in the teams' Pacific League and regular season finale. With its ranks already thinned over the past week due to academic ineligibility, the Tornadoes' doubles lineup entered Thursday's match at a disadvantage and the Nitros exploited it fully. Glendale's clean sweep of all nine doubles matches fueled an 11-7 victory that clinched third place in league, while the archrival Tornadoes finish in fourth.

Yoon rushed for 285 yards in 28 carries and three touchdowns to lift Glendale to a 55-49 Pacific League win against crosstown rival Hoover in the "Battle for the Victory Bell" at Moyse Field.

Wins have been hard to come by this season for the Glendale High and Hoover football teams. Still, if there's one game that will always have plenty of meaning, it's the annual "Battle for the Victory Bell. " The rivalry between the Nitros and Tornadoes dates back to 1930. Plenty of high-caliber players have been a part of one of the longest-standing rivalries in the state before going on to enjoy respectable collegiate and professional careers. The rivalry's 83rd installment will take place at 7 p.m. today at Glendale High's Moyse Field and is expected to draw the biggest crowd of the season for the Pacific League contest.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE - Though it hasn't won since the first week of the season, the Glendale High football team continued to make strides by scoring a bundle of points and staying close with its opponents. Over the last three weeks, the Nitros have regressed. They have struggled with tackling and turnovers have popped up at inopportune times. "It comes down to the same thing and that's that we don't tackle," Glendale Coach Alan Eberhart said after the Nitros suffered a 44-0 Pacific League home loss against Arcadia at Moyse Field on Friday night.
