Sayre hosts Troy on Tuesday.
For Waverly the game wraps up the season.
"This was a good game to end the season with," Waverly coach Tara Franklin said. "There were similarities in our game today as yesterday's game. We ended the first half 2-0. My players were still very much in the game and I believe we caught Sayre off guard. I was glad we were able to play Sayre today to get an extra game in this season.
"I just kept reminding the guys that they were playing for the seniors today, and they did. We were off to a good start and held Sayre off for a majority of the first half. The guys had a good game and worked very hard this season. They continued to improve against every team we played."
