RITZVILLE - Burbank's girls overcame a 9-6 deficit after the first quarter to take a 19-17 halftime lead, and then outplayed Lind-Ritzville in the second half for a 46-30 season-opening victory Friday night.

"Well, we got the first-game jitters out of the way," Coyotes coach John Muchlinski said. "We struggled early in the first half. From my perspective, it was a case of nerves.

"In the second half, we played much more comfortable basketball and were able to pull away," he said. "Our seniors really stepped up tonight and led the way and showed some great leadership for the younger players."

Katie Breazeale's 13 points led Burbank.

"While this is just the first game of the year, I am happy with the outcome," Muchlinski said. "We definitely have some areas to continue working, but it was great to finally play a game."

The Coyotes next host Granger at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
