At Lincoln, the Lynx were no-hit by sophomore Lanie Perry but managed to score an unearned run in the first inning and junior Haley McLaughlin made it stand up as she tossed a two-hitter and pitched out a seventh-inning jam.
McLaughlin struck out 12 and walked just one.
Narraguagus put a runner on third with nobody out in the seventh on a three-base error but McLaughlin got a pop-up, a strikeout and a liner to second to strand the tying run.
The top-seeded Lynx will face defending two-time regional champ Bucksport, the second seed, in a battle of 18-0 teams for the Class C North title on Wednesday night at 6:30 at Coffin Field in Brewer.
Perry also struck out 12 in her no-hitter. She walked three.
Kim Voisine scored the only run.
She drew a walk, alertly raced all the way to third on Audrey Tash’s sacrifice bunt when she noticed no one was covering third and scored as the throw from first to third to try to nail her skipped past the third baseman.
Perry and Anna Taylor each had singles for 15-3 Narraguagus of Harrington, the third seed.
