ARCADIA — The Burbank High players and coaches knew they would face a motivated and focused Arcadia football team when the teams squared off Friday in a Pacific League game.
A week earlier, the Apaches, who many in league picked to take this year's championship, had a poor showing and, as a result, suffered a 12-point loss to Burroughs.

Arcadia couldn't afford another loss if it expected to keep its title hopes alive.
Unfortunately, the Bulldogs took the brunt of Arcadia's wrath, scoring early and taking advantage of Burbank mistakes to gain an initial advantage. That was all too much for the Bulldogs to overcome, as they suffered a 38-7 loss on the road.
