Blais pushes Lady Mustangs over hopeful Seawolves

South Portland, ME - After an even 1st half, and a close 3rd quarter, the Lady Mustangs finally got the separation they were looking for, pulling away for the 69-60 win over rival Southern Maine Community College.  CM jumped out to an early 11-point lead in the 1st quarter, but after two fouls to Alex Bessey and Jordyn Reynolds, the Mustangs hit a bit of a wall in the 2nd quarter, going in to half time with the score tied, 31-31.

Although the Mustangs as a whole were quite inconsistent throughout the game, sophomore guard, Kristina Blais, dominated play from start to finish.  Blais hit for a season-high 23 points, scoring in a multitude of ways.  She connected on four 3's while dishing out 6 assists.  

Beyond Blais, the scoring was quite spreadout.  Eraleena Gethers-Hairston and Jordyn Reynolds both finished with 9 points and 9 rebounds.  Brooke Reynolds filled the stat sheet with 8 points, 8 rebounds, and 6 steals.  Kristen Huntress was a defensive nightmare, challenging the Seawolves the entire length of the floor., finishing with 7 points and 2 steals.  Bessey, who played limited 1st half minutes scored 6 points and handed out 6 assists.

Amanda Brett led the Seawolves with a game-high 29 points and 16 rebounds.

The smaller Seawolves battled hard glass, finishing only with a -7 disadvantage on the boards.  And while the CM bigs struggled throughout parts of the game, they still led the Mustangs to 50% shooting in the 1st quarter and 47% in the 3rd.

With the win CM closes out the first semester having won 12 straight games.  They now sit at 14-1 overall, 10-0 in the YSCC, and go into winter break ranked as the #1 team in the USCAA DII National Coaches Poll.  Their 1st game of the 2nd semester will be Saturday, January 13th when they travel to UMaine-Presque Isle to take on the Owls.
