Bulldogs Lose in First Round Playoffs

Burbank Leader

Opportunities missed by 'Dogs

Football: Burbank loses to host Santa Fe in first round of postseason, 28-14.

WHITTIER — The Burbank High football team had its share of opportunities in its opening CIF Southern Section playoff game Friday.

Playing against a tough Santa Fe squad, the Bulldogs fell behind early. However, the locals played themselves back into the game in the second half, and were driving to cut a disadvantage that had been 21 points to just a touchdown.

But Burbank was unable to score on the drive late in the fourth quarter, and the Chiefs held on for a 28-14 Southeast Division first-round win at Pioneer High.

"It's disappointing, because we definitely had our share of opportunities," said Burbank Coach Hector Valencia, whose team ends the season 7-4. "Our kids battled and they never game up. We just didn't execute like we were supposed to, and that hurt us."

Burbank, the No. 3 team from the Pacific League, had its hands full against Santa Fe (7-4), which placed second in the Del Rio League. Bulldogs' senior quarterback Adam Colman had to operate under constant pressure, and the Chiefs stuffed the box repeatedly, naturalizing the Burbank running game. READ FULL STORY
