Stephenville’s Honeybees started stinging early and often as they jumped out to an early lead and coasted their way to a 43-29 win against Venus.
“Venus has shooters,” Coach Alan Thorpe said. “I’m glad to get out of here with a win tonight. Come out of a tournament I didn’t know how we would play, but we did well tonight.”
The Honeybees (13-3) moved out front 11-2 during the first quarter, and Thorpe was able to substitute his players and work his bench.

With a 23-13 lead at the half, the Honeybees backed off in the third quarter. The Bees got four three-pointers on the night with Madison Gilder, Autumn Nichols, Bernays and Nowak all dialing long distance once.
Scoring—Gilder 3, Nowak 20, Bernays 3, Withers 2, Diaz 5, McClendon 4, Nichols 5.
