Burroughs High's Dalton Williams scored a touchdown against Pasadena (Roger/Wilson The Leader).

The Burroughs High football team had a great deal of motivation going into Thursday’s Pacific League game with Pasadena at Memorial Field.

A win would put the Indians in elite company.

Burroughs took care of business, getting three touchdowns from Dalton Williams to gain a 35-12 victory.

The win was important for the Indians (4-2, 3-0 in league) because it kept them undefeated in league.

Burroughs and Burbank (4-1, 2-0), which plays Glendale tonight, are the only two undefeated teams remaining in the league.

With four games remaining in league for Burroughs, it will likely have to run the table if it hopes to secure its first league championship in three years.

If Burbank can also win its next four Pacific League games, it could play cross-town rival Burroughs for the title. That hasn’t happened 35 years.
