Mullins keeps Mills in first 

Senior Pilar Mullins dominated the boards to ease the Mills girls’ basketball team (14-5, 4-0) past the host Burlingame 57-45 in a Peninsula Athletic League Central Division top-of-the-table clash.

"[Mullins] is pivotal for us," Vikings assistant coach Dermot Cronin said. "She demands double teams down low and that frees up shots, and she’s the fastest center in the league so she’ll tire everyone else out. Even if she’s not scoring, she’s still an MVP for us."

Mullins grabbed 17 rebounds and added 13 points ensure her team remained unbeaten in league play, while the Panthers drop their first game of the young conference season.

Burlingame (9-9, 3-1) had trouble penetrating through the tough, smothering defense, and the Vikings opened up a 10-point halftime lead through Justine Crisostomo’s nine second-period points.

Erin Scattini, who led with a team-high 13 points, keyed a rally for the Panthers in the third to force a six-point game, but the Vikings responded with 10 unanswered down the stretch to finish off the hosts.

"You knew everyone was going to play hard because we all love the game," Parker said. "We just had to stay calm and keep everyone involved."
