ATHENS - The Wildcats scored 27 third-quarter points and outscored Sayre 45-27 in the second half on their way to the victory.
"I thought the first half we got the ball inside, we just missed shots," Athens' coach Bob Fauver said. "We missed a lot of easy ones which stopped us from expanding the lead. The second half I thought our defense played a little better, we got out on the break, hit some shots and opened up the middle which got us some easy shots."
Garrett Clark led the Wildcats with 30 points and Robert Fauver and Brandon Fauver each had 12. Luke Wright and Curt Moore had four points each and John Canfield finished with three points.
Fauver said Clark struggled shooting in the first half as Athens led 20-17 at the half, but he was getting plenty of good looks.
"If he made half the ones he missed in the first half he would have had 40," Fauver said. "I told him to stay aggressive and they will drop."
For Athens the key was the defensive effort in the game.
"Defensively I thought in the third quarter we picked it up where we didn't allow them the open looks," Fauver said. "The defense picked up in the second half and that is what got us going."
Clark had nine boards and three assists in the game and Wright had six rebounds and four assists, Moore had four boards and Robert Fauver had six assists.
Nate Williams led Sayre with 19 and Nick Skerpon had seven, while Adam Wampole finished with five.
Jeremy Kyc and Walter Wampole each had four points for Sayre and Marshall Higley had three, while Joey Galizia had two points.
Seth Murrelle had six assists and two steals, with four boards, while Skerpon had five boards and a steal and Adam Wampole had four rebounds and a block.
Williams had two steals, an assist and a rebound, while Kyc had three rebounds and Cuyler Kochin had two rebounds.
