BURBANK — The posts and crossbar may be a goalkeeper's best friends, but they were archenemies to the Burroughs High boys' soccer team Saturday.
The Indians, hosting their own tournament and playing Anaheim Servite in a championship semifinal, hit each post with a shot and the crossbar twice in a 1-0 loss.
Servite (6-0) advances to face Royal (3-0) in the tournament's title game Monday at 7:30 p.m. Burroughs (2-1-2) will play Crespi (3-1) in the third-place game Monday at 4:30 p.m.
Burroughs was on its heels for the first 20 minutes Saturday against its large and aggressive opponent. But the diminutive Indians showed impressive toughness by seizing the momentum before halftime and exploding at the start of the second half.
