Lyle/Pacelli was also in action at the tournament Friday evening against Kenyon-Wanamingo, and despite Olivia Christenson’s 30 points, nine rebounds and 10 steals, the Athletics were downed by the Knights 55-38.
The Athletics are now 2-8 overall on the season, and they are back into action Thursday at home versus Goodhue.
In the tournament’s championship game Saturday, the Blooming Prairie Awesome Blossoms took on Kenyon-Wanamingo, and a three-pointer from Julia Worke with two seconds left lifted the Blossoms past the Knights 47-46.
Worke finished with 10 points in the game, while Maggie Bruns tallied a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds. Bobbie Bruns chipped in nine points in the win for the 6-1 Blossoms, who defeated the host Vikings Friday night 40-38 on a basket by Allison Krohnberg with just four seconds left.
The Blossoms return to action Thursday night in Chatfield.
