AUBURN — Kristen Huntress and Brooke Reynolds poured in 16 points apiece to lead Central Maine Community College to an 89-62 win over the University of Maine at Machias in both teams’ YSCC finale on Sunday.

Reynolds came off the bench and shot a perfect eight-for-eight from the floor while also contributing five rebounds, three assists and five steals. Huntress made four of her seven 3-point attempts and also had two steals and two assists.

Jordyn Reynolds added eight points, 10 rebounds, six steals, four assists and two steals for the Mustangs (23-2, 16-0 YSCC), who won their 51st consecutive game against a YSCC opponent. Brianna Mulherin chipped in with 12 points, six rebounds and four assists off the bench.

CMCC’s pace and defense was too much for the Clippers, who were down, 54-28 at halftime. The Mustangs forced 26 turnovers and only turned the ball over seven times.

Tate Dolley led all scorers with 37 points for UMaine-Machias (16-9, 12-4). Caitlyn Lyons added eight points and Abbey Allen six for the Clippers.

Central Maine will enter next weekend’s Yankee Conference tournament as the top seed for the third year in a row and fifth time in the last seven seasons.

BANGOR — Four consecutive UMBC 3-pointers over the final 3:11 of regulation proved to be just enough, as the Retrievers escaped the Cross Insurance Center with a 67-66 win over Maine on Sunday.

Before the Retrievers went on the 3-point shooting frenzy, Maine held UMBC to shoot just 2-of-12 on long range shots.
