La Serna bounces back to get win: After being upset last week by Santa Fe, the La Serna High football team came into Thursday night’s Del Rio League game against Pioneer looking to take its pain out on someone.
Unfortunately for the Titans (3-4, 0-2), they wound up being that casualty, and it did not end well for them.

Pasadena falls again: A shaky start put the Pasadena High football team in a hole it wasn’t able to dig out of, as the Bulldogs were routed by Burbank 42-0 in a Pacific League game on Thursday night.
The rough start happened before the game even began, as heavy traffic caused the team bus to arrive late. The Bulldogs (1-6, 1-3) didn’t get to start their warmups until about 20 minutes before kickoff.
“We didn’t get to go through everything right,” Pasadena head coach DeJuan Shamburger said. “But we can’t do anything about traffic.”
