NEW SUMMERFIELD — Tanya Saurez poured in a season-high 24 points which proved to be enough to propel the New Summerfield Lady Hornets to a 32-31 win over Beckville Tuesday night at Hornet Gymnasium.
The Lady Hornets moved to 3-5 with the win and will host Pineywoods Academy at 6 p.m. Friday.
Meanwhile, Beckville dropped to 0-6 with the loss.
Included in Saurez' effort was three bombs from behind the arc.
The New Summerfield coaching staff also had high praise for the team's defense, as the Lady Hornets were forced to hold back Beckville late to log the win.
A handful of final-frame miscues, brought on by the New Summerfield defenders, by Beckville proved to be costly.
Completing the scoring for New Summerfield was Karli McCown, Mi'Chala Davis, Vanessa Zuniga and Monica Saurez. Each young lady scored two points.
