At Skowhegan, Ashley Alward pitched a perfect game as the top-seeded and defending Class A North champion Indians ousted the fourth-seeded Rams.
The junior right-hander dominated from the outset, facing the minimum 15 batters before Skowhegan (16-2) scored six runs in the fifth inning to invoke the 12-run rule. Alward struck out seven, walked none and allowed only two balls to be hit out of the infield.
Sydney Ames sparked the offense with two singles and a game-ending, two-run double. Lindsey Warren hit two run-scoring singles, Emma Duffy tripled and singled with an RBI and Sydney Reed singled and hit a sacrifice fly.
Starting pitcher Lexi Cunningham took the loss for Bangor, which finished its season at 14-4.
