The top-seeded Tuckers took down No. 4 Babylon, 55-36, in the Class B semifinals Saturday afternoon at Mattituck High School.
The win sends the Tuckers into the county championship game Tuesday against No. 3 Center Moriches.

Sophomore Liz Dwyer led Mattituck with 17 points in Saturday’s win as the Tuckers improved to 17-1 overall. Junior Corinne Reda was the only other Mattituck player in double figures with 11.
It was the third win of the year for Mattituck over Babylon this year.
