WATERVILLE, ME – The UMA women’s basketball team traveled to Thomas College to face the DIII Terriers who stood at 4-3 going into the competition. After controlling the play for most of the game the Moose walked away with a win that pushes them over .500 to 6-5 (3-2 YSCC).
After the first few minutes of scoreless play the Moose started firing on offense going on a 6-0 run before the Terriers responded with a 3 pointer from Sammie Griffin. Jamie Plummer contributed 11 points in the first quarter that ended with a 3-pt jump shot from Bri Soucy putting the Moose up 21-16.
The second quarter is where the Moose started to roll building on their lead with two back to back treys from Carmen Bragg and a layup from Caitlin LaFountain putting the Moose up 38-24 at the half.
The Moose came out of the locker room looking to capitalize on their first half of play. Within the first 12 seconds Caitlin LaFountain made her layup starting a 9-2 run for the Moose.
At the beginning of the 4th quarter the Moose extended their lead to the greatest margin of the night to 56-30 with a layup from Carmen Bragg.
