Bryant led 6-0 before Edmonson drained her first triple. Moments later, Muse added a 3. Edmonson scored on an inbounds play to make it 14-0 then, after the Mounties scored, Edmonson took a feed from Jaelyn Allen and buried another trey to make it 17-3 going into the second stanza.

Muse opened the scoring in the second quarter off a dish from Allen.

After the Mounties free throw, Winston banked in a 3 and Edmonson drilled two more. A steal and layup by Winston made it 30-4. Haya Winfield, who had seven rebounds for the Lady Hornets hit a free throw with no time on the clock to set the halftime score.
