BANGOR, Maine — It wasn’t pretty, but Waterville’s 63rd consecutive victory counted just the same as the 62 before it.

The top-ranked Purple Panthers limited Mattanawcook of Lincoln to seven field goals while Morgan Frame posted a double-double en route to a comfortable 50-21 Eastern Maine Class B girls quarterfinal win over the No. 8 Lynx at the Bangor Auditorium Saturday.

Coach Ted Rioux’s 19-0 club advances to Wednesday’s 3:35 p.m. semifinal against Mount View of Thorndike while the Lynx finish up 13-7.

The Panthers came out fairly slow, leading 8-5 after one quarter with the Lynx throwing a lot of junk defenses.

Brooke Hanscom’s eight points led the Lynx.
