Despite record, injuries. Ansley-Litchfield not overlooking Central Valley

The injuries have caused the coach to institute younger players into the gameplan each week. Advantage Warriors, right? Well, Head Coach A.J. Burki laments that his team isn't overlooking anybody.

"We have everything to lose in this scenario," says Burki, whose team is still fighting for playoff positioning.
