Chatsworth Gets Burblasted!

James Williams (#21) was awesome in his varsity debut for the Bulldogs.

(Burbank) – After notching a 4-6 season in 2011, Burbank began its 2012 non-league schedule in fine fashion with a 39-3 drubbing of LA City Section opponent Chatsworth.

A year of frustration became a distant memory quickly as Teddy Arlington and James Williams scored just 2:33 apart to build an insurmountable lead for the Bulldogs early in the first quarter.

Returning Senior running back Arlington finished off an impressive opening drive with an eight-yard scat to open up the scoring, while newcomer Williams dazzled with a powerful 50-yard score with 5:12 remaining in the opening stanza.

With an experienced defensive front, Burbank managed to frustrate the Chancellors offense with four straight four-and-outs to give all the breathing room the Bulldogs offense needed.

A far cry from last season when Burbank only managed to produce two 30-plus scoring outputs, the Bulldog offense established itself in the first half by scoring 27 of its 39 points in the game. Second-year starting quarterback Zach Tomlinson rushed for a nine-yard score and Arlington scored his second touchdown of the evening midway through the first half of the opener to send the Burbank to the locker rooms with a 27-point lead.

For the evening, Williams finished with 177 yards rushing on just 12 carries and Arlington ran for another 93 to help lead the Burbank offense in rushing.

If any doubt lingered through the final quarter, it became erased as Williams blew by the entire Chatsworth defense when scoring on a 92-yard score with 9:57 remaining in the game.

The Chancellors had a shot to get on the scoreboard late in the game only to fail on downs and fumble inside the red zone.

The Bulldogs added another score before the end of the game when Tomlinson found Santorio wide open for a 79-yard pass play.

Burbank nose tackle, three year starter, Steven Kim.

Defensively the Bulldogs were paced by several players including linebackers Aaron Jimenez and Gary Clements, but it was three year starter Steven Kim who went off like a bomb in the Chancellors backfield. The senior nose tackle unofficially recorded four sacks and over ten tackles.
