MATTAWA, Wash. - Burbank's girls ended their season with a 51-42 loss to River View here Monday night in a game deciding the South Central Conference East Division's fourth-place finisher and the final berth to the district tournament.

The Coyotes finish the season with an 8-13 overall record, 6-6 in SCC play.

River View heads to Yakima to play LaSalle this evening in the first round of the district tournament.

Monday night, Julie Mosqueda led Burbank's effort with 13 points, including all three of the Coyotes' 3-pointers in the game.

Sarah Rude scored 11 points and nabbed nine of Burbank's 31 rebounds.

Mallory Smith's 18 points led River View.

"We really didn't play that bad of a ballgame," Burbank coach John Muchlinski said. "They made their three free throws. They were 20 for 26 from the line tonight."

Burbank held a 12-11 edge after the first quarter, but the Panthers responded by outscoring the Coyotes 8-2 in the second quarter, and never relinquished the lead.

"I have to tip my hat to the girls, they played hard all game long," he said. "We kept battling, but ran out of time in the end."

A trio of Burbank seniors played its final game with the Coyotes.

"Katie Breazeale, Sarah Rude and Ashley Zuhlke will be missed," Muchlinski said. "They were great leaders this year. The experience and guidance they brought to the team will be missed."
