The Wellsboro Varsity Girls Basketball team broke a three-game losing streak by edging Sayre on the road, 32-29, on Saturday, December 17.
Sayre held a slim one-point, 7-6 lead, over the Lady Hornets after the opening quarter but Wellsboro rallied to outscore the Lady Redskins 9-7 in the second to take a 15-14 lead into halftime. Wellsboro outscored Sayre 9-8 in the 3rd to lead 24-22, and outscored them again, 8-7 in the fourth, to hold on for the win.
"We ran our offense pretty well and got a lot of good looks, but we were really cold in the first half," head coach Darrell Morris said. "We were down 3 with a few minutes to go but we played really tight man to man which turned the tides, and made a couple big buckets at the end to pull it out. It wasn't pretty, but it was good for our girls to find a way to get it done when the game was on the line."
Logsdon grabbed 11 rebounds to score her second double-double of the season, Posada had 6 steals, senior Hailie Kerr pulled down 7 rebounds, Mascho added 2 rebounds, 2 steals, and 2 assists, and Brandenburg had 3 rebounds and 3 steals.
There was no JV game.
Wellsboro (2-3, 2-1 NTL Large School Division) is back in action on Tuesday, December 20 at Towanda.
