In the girls' game, River Valley got off to a great start, leading 19-4 after the first quarter, but Siouxland Christian cut into their lead some in the second quarter, with River Valley leading 24-15 at the half. The Wolverines used good pressure defense to pull away in the second half and win the game, 59-22.

'Our seniors are really doing a great job of hitting the ground running this season, " said Wolverines' coach Matt Jenness. "We are ahead of where we were last season defensively, and we are coming along offensively. Britney Shropshire was hurt our first game, and our defense showed that. Having her back tonight was a huge lift. We have a long ways to go, but we are improving."
