Seawolves Grab 86-48 Win Over Greater Allegheny

South Portland - An intense defensive effort and unselfish play on offense allowed the Seawolves to pick up a commanding 86-48 win against the Nittany Lions of Penn State University of Greater Allegheny.

Lady Seawolves' guard Abigail Nielsen (North Yarmouth, ME) set the tone for the Seawolves on defense by limiting PSU's best offensive player, Mandi Johnston, who entered today's contest averaging 27.5 points per game, to just two field goals and nine total points. The rest of the team fed off Nielsen's energy, forcing 13 PSU turnovers and holding the Nittany Lions to just twenty-four percent shooting from the floor.

On offense the Seawolves racked up 23 assists on 37 made field goals and shot an impressive forty-seven percent from the field. SMCC was able to take advantage of their size underneath, getting a combined 58 points and 23 rebounds from post players Amira Jones (Chicopee, MA), Alicia Hoyt (Steep Falls, ME) and Hannah Heald (Appleton, ME). Nielsen ended the contest with her first collegiate double-double, chalking up 12 points and 10 assists to go along with seven rebounds. Point guard Jordan Turner (Casco, ME) chipped in with nine points, nine rebounds and four assists.

The Nittany Lions were led by shooting guard Tori Johnston who had 17 points and four rebounds.

With this win the Seawolves improve to 3-1 and will take the floor next at Vermont Technical College on Saturday November 14th at 1pm

In her debut outing of the 2015-16 season, Seawolves' forward Maria Veino (Sanford, ME) made a seamless transition from the soccer pitch to the basketball court, tallying a double double with 18 points and 10 rebounds. Other noteworthy performances came from center Alicia Hoyt (Steep Falls, ME) and point guard Jordan Turner (Casco, ME) who netted 11 and 10 points respectively. Vanese Barnes (Jay, ME) also chipped in a season high nine points and four steals.

Leading the Knights was shooting guard Kaitlin Lyford who scored a game high 21 points.

SMCC basketball teams show promise
The season is young, but early indications suggest that more hardwood heroics are on tap this year at Southern Maine Community College.

Promising beginning
The women’s squad has gotten off to a fast start, winning four of its first five games. The Seawolves, who got to the conference championship game, losing to St. Joseph’s of Vermont, and qualified for the national tournament a year ago, opened with wins over Cegep Champlain St. Lawrence (67-46) and UNB Saint John (62-44). After a hard-fought 46-42 setback at Navy Prep, SMCC defeated Penn State Greater Allegheny in its home opener (86-48) and won at Vermont Tech (79-48).

Lady Seawolves Win Nail Biter Over PSU-Beaver

South Portland - This afternoon the Lady Seawolves played host to defending USCAA National Champions, PSU-Beaver. After a 40 minute, back and forth battle that consisted of 14 ties and 13 lead changes the Seawolves prevailed, 78-75.

The Seawolves held their largest lead of the game three minutes into the first quarter when the score was only 11-5. The Lions fought back and eventually took a 33-28 advantage which would be their largest lead. The Seawolves closed out the second quarter with six consecutive made free throws from Alicia Hoyt (Steep Falls, ME), Hannah Heald (Appleton, ME) and Vanese Barnes (Jay, ME) and knotted the score at 34-34 going into the intermission.

The Seawolves managed to outscore the Lions by a lone point to take a 55-54 lead into the final period. The teams proceeded to swap baskets until a made layup by Hoyt gave the Seawolves a four point cushion with 2:23 remaining. PSU responded with a made free throw by forward Asia Borders and a jump shot by point guard Mia Mattes to close the gap to one, 76-75. Once again Hoyt had the answer with a layup that put SMCC back up three. A defensive stop by the Seawolves resulted in a possession, a Beaver foul and an unsuccessful trip to free throw line by SMCC. The Lions had 3.8 seconds to try to tie the game but a desperation shot by Morgan Kurtz was off the mark and the Seawolves came away with the triumph.

Hoyt led all scorers tonight with a season high 23 points. She also led all rebounders, pulling down 16 and recording her first double-double of the 2015-16 season. Sophomore forward Amira Jones (Chicopee, MA) put up 17 and grabbed nine boards.

Tough Second Quarter Costs Seawolves

Augusta - In the second quarter of tonight's YSCC women's basketball matchup the Moose of UMaine-Augusta outscored the Seawolves 30-11, en route to a 74-50 victory.

After one quarter the Seawolves trailed by just four, 17-13, but UMA's Caitlin LaFountain shot a perfect 5-5 in the second period and chalked up 11 points to lead UMA to a double digit cushion. The Moose converted on 10 of the 20 shots they took in the quarter while the Seawolves converted on only four of their 17 attempts. This shooting discrepancy led to a 47-24 Moose lead going into halftime. Seawolves' center Alicia Hoyt (Steep Falls, ME) was the sole reason SMCC was able to stay in the game through the first two periods, scoring 12 of the teams 24 points and grabbing seven rebounds.

The Seawolves played even with the Moose in the final two quarters, led by shooting guards Destinie Montano (Chicopee, MA) and Abigail Nielsen (North Yarmouth, ME) who netted eight and six points respectively.

The Moose were led by LaFountain who ended with 17 points and 16 rebounds and point guard Darby Toth who scored a game high 19 points and dished out eight assists.

With this loss the Seawolves slip to 7-2 and 2-1 in conference play. The women will be off until Thursday December 3rd when they play NHTI at home at 8pm.

Saints Slip by Seawolves, 60-56

Rutland, VT - This afternoon the Lady Seawolves traveled to Vermont to face the Saints of the College of St. Joseph's. Today's matchup was a rematch of last season's YSCC championship game in which the Lady Saints prevailed 72-67. Today was another hard fought battle for forty minutes but once again the Saints came out on top, 60-56.

The Saints jumped out to an early lead, outscoring the Seawolves 22-12 in the first quarter. The Seawolves were only able to stick around in the first due to the offensive efforts of shooting guard Sammie Griffin (Union, ME) who went 2-2 from the three point line and 2-2 from the free throw line to score eight of the team's 12. In the second quarter neither team found much offense as the Seawolves edged the Saints 10-9 to chip the lead down to nine as they headed into the intermission.

St. Joe's struck first after halftime when Chontayvia Kennedy connected on a shot from beyond the arc to balloon the Saints' lead to 12. After that shot SMCC went on a 15-6 run to close the gap to just three points heading into the final period. The Seawolves started the fourth quarter with two made free throws by center Alicia Hoyt (Steep Falls, ME) to pull SMCC to within one, 40-39. St. Joe's responded with a 10-2 run to go up nine with 5:28 remaining in the game. An Abigail Nielsen (North Yarmouth, ME) layup followed by a Kendra Kagiliery (Kittery, ME) three pointer brought the Seawolves to within four but the Saints responded with back to back jumpers from Jazz Laracuente and Kennedy to go back up eight. The Seawolves would not give up as junior guard Zyrah Giustra (New Sharon, ME) and Nielsen each connected on layups and Kagiliery netted her fourth bucket from downtown to make it a three point game, 56-53. The two teams exchanged baskets, with the Saints clinging to a 58-55 advantage and possession of the ball with just 30 seconds remaining. The Seawolves managed a steal on the inbounds but couldn't connect on the shot attempt. The Saints then capitalized at the charity stripe to take the 60-56 triumph.

Kagiliery led the Seawolves with a team high 14 points while forward Amira Jones (Chicopee, MA) added seven points and 12 rebounds. The Saints were led by center Regina Steele who had game highs in both points, 18, and rebounds, 15. Arreonte Anderson also tallied a double double with 14 points and 11 boards.

The Lady Seawolves (14-4, 5-3 YSCC) will be back in action on Wednesday at Great Bay Community College.
