Mikayla Palmer-Bacon was high scorer with 10 points and 4 rebounds and Mackenzie Marple scored 8 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. The Lady Hornets kept the game close throughout the first half, but couldn't close the widening gap through the third and fourth quarters.
"Sayre is a well-coached group of players who are very strong defensively", said coach Mary Grab. "I thought we'd make a better showing against them, but it just wasn't there tonight."
Mackenzie Marple was named to the All-Tournament Team.
