The second quarter made all the difference, with White River pouring in 22 points to take a commanding halftime lead of 31-7. Cassidy France scored 10 points during the period to lead the charge and Kennedy Hobert added seven.
Freshman starter Amanda Lance dropped in three 3-point bombs in the third quarter as the Hornets pushed their lead to 30 points and then 40.
