Burros fall to Falcons, defeat Knight

Burros fall to Falcons, defeat KnightA determined Brian Schwaiger (No. 9, Burroughs High School) picks his way through the Palmdale Falcons’ defense during a varsity football home game on Aug. 30. After conceding three touchdowns in the first half, the Burros came back strong scoring three of their own in the third quarter. But they ultimately fell to the Falcons 48-27. Friday was also the team’s Armed Service Appreciation night and local military and first responders were honored on the field. The Burros recouped their losses somewhat by defeating Knight High School on Friday, Sept. 6, in Palmdale, bringing their preseason record to 1 win, 2 losses. — Photo by Laura Austin.
