Cassidy Cline outscored Venus by herself and three other Honeybees joined her in double figures as Stephenville won 62-12 on the road Friday.
The District 7-3A victory keeps the Honeybees within a game of league leader Glen Rose, and it very nearly evened the league standings. Glen Rose needed overtime to clip Alvarado 47-40 Friday. The Bees are 3-1 in 7-3A and begin the second half of league action at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in Hillsboro.
Cline was joined in double figures by fellow guards Bayleigh Chaviers with 11 and Dally Friedrich with 10. Guard Tiara Green and post Kourtney Seaton each added eight, making it the second straight game in which the Bees have had five players with at least that many.
"We played well, it was good to see us shoot it well," said Stephenville head coach Alan Thorpe. "In the first quarter we shot 62 percent, and a lot of that's layups on the press, but still, we'll take it."
The Honeybees also had success from outside the arc, knocking down six 3-pointers.
"We're spreading it around pretty good and making good decisions with the ball," Thorpe said. "And they ran a zone against us, so we got to work on our zone offense."
Lariat Larner scored five and was one of the frontline defenders in Stephenville's press. Her role has steadily increased since being moved up from the junior varsity club.
"She's getting more comfortable," Thorpe said. "She's so good on defense, that's why she's playing with the varsity. She creates a lot of stuff."
Lyndi Graham, Bethanie Bouchey and Chrislyn Wells added two points each for Stephenville.
