"We just couldn't get it going tonight," said Burbank coach John Muchlinski. "Have to give credit to Connell's defense. They forced us into some bad shots and some turnovers."

Burbank was led by Rachel Roberts' 12 points and two steals. Connell's Kayla Bjorge posted 13 and was 3-of-7 from 3-point range.

"We have to put this one behind us and move forward," Muchlichski said.
