BURBANK - A couple of freshmen stole the show on senior night here Saturday in leading Burbank to a 57-51 girls South Central Conference Eastern Division basketball victory over River View.

Julie Mosqueda scored a career-high 21 points and fellow first-year player Rachel Roberts added 12 as they filled the top two spots on the Coyotes' scoring chart. Senior Katie Breazeale was a third Burbank player in double figures with 11 points.

Burbank improved to 5-6 in league games and 7-12 overall, and the Coyotes remain on the fringe of the postseason playoff picture. The Coyotes will need to win their regular-season finale at Royal (0-9, 1-15) on Saturday, but they also need a Kiona-Benton victory over River View when those teams meet Tuesday in Benton City.

River View (5-5, 8-10) is still a game up on the Coyotes in the loss column with two games to play. Kiona-Benton (7-3, 12-6) enters Tuesday's game tied with Mabton for second place in the East, trailing only Connell (10-1, 16-3).

Mosqueda and Roberts each nailed a trio of 3-point baskets in Saturday's game, which saw Burbank outscore River View 32-23 in the second half to pull out the victory.
