The Hornets and Warriors have had little to be happy about thus far, each possessing a dismal 0-5season record. Both squads opened the 2015 campaign with back-to-back, nonleague losses,followed by three defeats in SPSL 2A play.

White River fans in search of a silver lining can look to the fact that the Hornets have fallen to theleague’s best. League losses have come at the hands of top-of-the-heap River Ridge (3-0), alongwith Fife and Franklin Pierce (both 2-1).

Clover Park has posted some astoundingly poor numbers while limping to a winless beginning.The Warriors have given up 262 points, an average of more than 52 per outing; along the way,Clover Park surrendered 77 to Lakes, 62 to Steilacoom and 58 to Bonney Lake. Offensively, theWarriors have managed just three touchdowns and 18 total points.

White River is averaging nearly 20 points per game, having scored 97 in five games. That wasboosted by a 48-point outburst against Franklin Pierce. The Hornet defense has given up 214points.

White River’s most recent setback came on the road Oct. 2. The Hornets traveled to Lacey andwere overwhelmed by host River Ridge.

White River fell behind 14-0 but made things interesting in the second quarter when TylerMeadows hauled in a touchdown pass from quarterback Trevor Johnson. The intrigue didn’t lastlong.

The hosts added a pair of TDs before intermission to move to a 27-6 halftime lead. Additionaltouchdowns in the third and fourth quarters put things further out of reach.
