A confident Burroughs High team opened its 2005 campaign Friday with a convincing nonleague victory against host Schurr, 30-14. The Indians set and maintained the pace of the game, as they came out running with senior Thomas Kyle -- who finished the night with 111 yards in 11 carries and a touchdown. He also caught a 67-yard screen pass from junior quarterback Tony Banuelos Jr. for a touchdown to put Burroughs ahead. Banuelos completed 14 of 26 passes for 233 yards and three touchdowns.

BURBANK - Last time out for Burroughs High baseball saw the Indians win a three hour marathon against host Crescenta Valley to take over sole position of first place in the Pacific League. But that win would lose most of its splendor if Burroughs failed to take care of business Friday hosting a youthful Glendale squad fresh off its first league win. Against the Nitros, Burroughs did not stumble and came away with a 5-0 victory to remain the last undefeated team in Pacific League play.

About 30 minutes into watching the Wednesday night dress rehearsal of “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” at John Burroughs High School in Burbank, I had an unsettling realization. An hour prior, I had been at the mercy of sharp steel, having received a haircut less than a mile away. I shivered and touched my neck, taken in by Stephen Sondheim's over-the-top creepy score, music the play's vocal director Brendan Jennings described - rather aptly, I thought - as “early Tim Burton.” Fortunately, the woman who tames my somewhat unruly mop is not a maniacal, hate-filled murderer.

LA CRESCENTA - It was only fitting the Pacific League girls' volleyball match between Crescenta Valley High and Burroughs was decided on an ace. Ironically, the team that was most formidable in its serving didn't wind up with the decider. After being peppered by 20 Falcons aces, the Indians had the most memorable one from Darby Adams - her fourth of the match - which ended the contest in Burroughs' favor on Crescenta Valley's home court Tuesday, 25-21, 23-25, 25-18, 20-25, 15-13.

BURBANK - With both the Burroughs High and Crescenta Valley baseball teams, squads that had made the playoffs a season earlier, having opened up Pacific League play with losses to teams that had finished outside of the top four in league last year, perhaps Friday afternoon's league showdown took on even more importance. For the Falcons, at least, that was the mindset. And, behind some early offense and solid pitching, Crescenta Valley staved off host Burroughs for a 4-1 league victory.

GLENDALE - Trailing by three runs to Burroughs High, the Hoover baseball team was looking for something to ignite it late in Friday's Pacific League game. That spark might just have come in the form of a defensive play. In the top of the sixth inning with Burroughs at bat, the Tornadoes got out of the frame on a double play that ended with an Indians runner being thrown out at home after a fly to right field. PHOTOS: Hoover comeback results in 4-3 victory over Burroughs Using the play as motivation, Hoover came back and tied the game in the bottom of the sixth and eventually won the contest on a walk-off suicide squeeze in the eighth inning to complete a 4-3 comeback against visiting Burroughs.
