The Lady Hornets trailed 9-8 after the first quarter and 21-17 at halftime.

"Playing at Wyalusing is always tough, and playing at noon before the JV game I was a little worried we'd have a slow start," head coach John Davis said. "I knew they (Wyalusing) would play us physical and the game would not be decided until the second half. However, being down 7 going into the fourth quarter was a little unexpected. The girls didn't panic and played great team basketball down the stretch."

Senior Emma Coolidge led all scorers with 14 points, freshman Paige Logsdon had 8 points and 11 rebounds, freshman Chloe Brandenburg added 6, sophomore Maddy Mascho finished with 4, junior Ella Posada pitched in 3, and senior Emma Brandenburg rounded out the scoring with 2 points and 7 rebounds.
