The first game of Saturday’s semifinal action pitted top-seeded Central Maine Community College against the Moose of UMaine-Augusta. The Moose played tough against the Mustangs for the first 20 minutes, grabbing a 5-point lead to open the game and battling back after CMCC responded and took the lead. At halftime the Mustangs were ahead by a tenuous, 1-point margin.

YSCC Player of the Year Jamie Plummer’s 21 points were not enough, as Central Maine opened up the second half with a 13–0.

Brooke Reynolds, a first-team all-conference player, and teammate Jenny Schim shared top-scoring honors with 14 points each. CMCC’s patented full-court pressure defense did periodically disrupt the Moose while they brought the ball up court, and their half-court defense remained keyed up throughout the second half. CMCC would able to build an 11-point lead after three quarters, which proved to be too much for the Moose to overcome.

CMCC would move on to play New Hampshire Technical Institute for the role of top dog in the women’s championship of the YSCC Elite 8 Tournament.
