Sayre girls edge TroyTROY — Sayre scored 16 fourth-quarter points to rally for a 60-55 lead over Troy on Friday. It was the 125th career win as a coach for Sayre's Eileen Sparduti.

"I owe that to a team who played with big hearts," Sparduti said. "I am proud to be called their coach."

The Redskins led at the half 34-26, but Troy rallied in the third outscoring the Redskins 19-10 to take the lead before Sayre's big final quarter.

"Incredible culmination to a long week. Five games in eight days, four on the road, and tonight without a starting senior. To be 5-0 is an amazing start.

"Camry Lane stepped up huge tonight, returning to the helm of the offense. Molly Ball, Kaeli Sutryk and Andi Noldy brought the senior 'refuse to lose' mentality and role players Emily Moore and Stephanie Klovekorn gave us the minutes we needed. Blair (Wampole) battled with foul trouble and sat much of the second half. Troy was physical and scrappy. Morgan Gentile scored from everyone on the floor. But, in the end, we were better able to disrupt play between her and her sister, Samantha. But, they are a formidable duo."

Camry Lane led Sayre with a season-high 21 points and Kaeli Sutryk had 15 points, while Molly Ball had 13.

Andi Noldy had eight points for Sayre and Stephanie Klovekorn finished with three points.

Morgan Gentile led Troy with 32 points in her second varsity game, adding six boards, seven steals and a block. She has 15 steals and 55 points in her first two varsity games.

Sam Gentile had 11 points, three boards and four steals and Madison McClelland had six points, a board and four steals.

Roxanne Kingsley had four points, two boards and a steal and Carla Proto had two points, four boards and an assist.

Marissa Bulkley had a rebound and five steals.

"We came up short against a tough Sayre team," Troy coach Brian Burchard said. "They shot a great percentage from the floor. Coach Sparduti has a group of talented shooters."

Troy is at Canton on Monday.
