Rachel Roberts scored 19 points as Columbia (Burbank) held off a late rally by River View to pick up a 55-51 SCAC East victory in Finley and earn a share of the league title with Connell.

The Coyotes led by 19 late in the third quarter before the Panthers put together a big rally to pull within one in the fourth quarter.

“Even when they had their late run on us, you just didn’t get the sense of a whole lot of panic out of our kids,” Columbia (Burbank) coach Jay Aune said. “I’m not sure why that happened, but I’m glad it did.”

Julie Mosqueda added 14 points for the Coyotes, who will be the No. 2 seed to next week’s District 5 tournament. Their opponent is yet to be determined.

Katie Wilhelm’s 17 led the Panthers, who will be the No. 4 seed to the District 5 tournament.

COLUMBIA (BURBANK) — Ricard 6, Aguilar, Aune 6, Roberts 19, Magallon, Idler 4, Koopman, Mosqueda 14, Holst, Ellis 6.

Liberty Christian led 21-15 in the first quarter, but followed that up with zero points in the second quarter.

“The first quarter was the best quarter of basketball we’ve played all year. Followed by the worst quarter of the year. At halftime I asked (the players) if we could have the first quarter back,” Patriots coach Angel Ojeda said. “I can’t explain it. We tried forcing some things.”

Bella Loera led Liberty Christian with 16 points.
