BURBANK — The Burbank High and Glendale girls’ soccer teams were trying to bounce back from recent setbacks when they met Friday for a Pacific League match. Both were hoping to erase losing streaks, as the Bulldogs had dropped four straight and the Nitros were winless on the season, including three league matches. Although Glendale played tough defense at times, it didn’t create enough scoring opportunities. In contrast, Burbank manufactured a great deal of opportunities, as it rolled to a 3-0 victory at Luther Burbank Middle School.

BURBANK — The way the Hoover High boys’ soccer team dominated Thursday in the first half against Burbank, it appeared the Tornadoes were in for a lopsided win. In the early going, Hoover dictated play, kept the ball in Bulldog territory for most of the half and created its share of chances. However, despite the domination, the Tornadoes couldn’t score. That left the door open for Burbank, which took advantage of its chances to notch a 2-0 win at Luther Burbank Middle School in a Pacific League opener for both schools.
