The Wolverines got out to an early lead of 14-3 after the first quarter and led 26-15 at halftime. They used a huge third quarter to break the game open, outscoring the Wildcats 17-3 to take a 43-18 lead into the fourth quarter and the score ended up 56-41.
River Valley used pressure defense to get 18 steals, led by Kari Ludvigson with seven and Mackenzie Fitch with five. Britney Shropshire led the scoring attack with 19 points, while Fitch and Lexie Chester both added 11, and Ludvigson added nine.
"We have been playing great defense the last couple of games and we have been turning that into good offense," said River Valley coach Matt Jenness. " We are getting steals and getting out and running to get ourselves some good shots. We are hitting our stride at the right time of year, which is always our goal. I am very proud of our girls. They have worked hard and it is really paying off for them."
