Maine Baseball to Play Fall Games

For the first time in 5 fall seasons, the UMaine Baseball team will be playing fall games against outside competition. “We see value in getting the guys more reps against someone outside of our own team,” says Associate Head Coach Nick Derba. “The fall is a time for us as coaches to evaluate players and really work on things. This is the time for players to make mistakes so Coach Trimper and myself thought that it would be a good idea to put them in situations that may lead to these mistakes. There is less urgency in the fall to produce and more time to teach. When Spring comes it is time to win.” UMaine Baseball has scheduled three games versus outside competitions.

9/19/2015 v Franklin Pierce. 12:00 PM start @ Hadlock field in South Portland. This is a scout day. Players will go through an MLB evaluation circuit starting with 60 yard dash times and then moving into positional and offensive evaluations. A game will follow where all pitchers will throw at least one inning.
9/25/2015 v Southern New Hampshire University, 4:00 PM start @ Hadlock Field. This will be a double header. All pitchers will throw at least one inning during this event. MLB scouts will be on hand as well.
10/3/2015 v Husson University, 4:00 PM start @ Mansfield Stadium. This will be a battle for Bangor. Thanks to Dave Mansfield, Rob Saint Pierre and Jim Owens, UMaine baseball will be utilizing Mansfield stadium for this game along with practices throughout the fall.
For practice schedule please contact Nick Derba @ Nicholas.derba@maine.edu or follow us on Twitter @MaineBaseball.

BANGOR, Maine - Taylor Fortin's goal in the 60th minute ended 23 years of frustration for Husson against the Nor'Easters, giving the Eagles a 2-1 triumph over New England (Maine), their first win in the series since 1992, which also was a 2-1 decision. The Green and Gold also end a 13-game losing streak to the Nor'Easters.

The Eagles are unbeaten in their first three matches this year, which ties the school record set by the 2008 unit, after holding the visitors four goals below their season average Wednesday.

New England (2-1) scored first in the eighth minute, as Jackie Dickerson fed Devon Wolfenden, who from 10 yards out put the ball in the back of the net for her first goal this season.

Husson (2-0-1) answered in the 14th minute with its first goal against the Nor'Easters since 1997 when Alison Boulier (2) chipped the ball over the head of Brielle Robinson to tie the match. Katie Cyr was credited with an assist on the play.

Fortin's (2) game-winner came in the 60th minute when she used her head to redirect an Emily Berry throw-in into the bottom right corner of the net.

Fortin, Leah Hibbad and Sydney Costa each had three shots for the Eagles. All of Costa's shots were on goal.

Becca Murphy totaled three shots in the loss.

Reigning NAC Defensive Player of the Week Kayla Gordon (2-0-1), who went the distance in the win, made seven stops from her goalkeeper position.

Robinson (2-1) tallied five saves in 90 minutes of action as the netminder for the Nor'Easters.

Husson travels to Bowdoin (Maine) on Sunday for a 2 p.m. ET kickoff.

Ashley Robinson responded late in the game with an unassisted goal for the Black Bears, but the Friars fought back to score the game winning goal with less than a minute to play.

Husson Men's Soccer Holds on for Season Opening Victory

EAST BOSTON, Mass. - Husson jumped out to a three-goal lead before holding off a late charge by Suffolk (Mass.) for a 3-2 win Tuesday afternoon at James A. Sartori Stadium at East Boston Memorial Park in the season opener for both teams. The win gives head coach Jeff Gettler the 50th of his career with the Eagles.

The Rams (0-1) controlled the pace of play early, but it was the Eagles (1-0) who asserted themselves, combining a stingy defense and pressing attack. Husson fired an early shot on junior Ianis Teixeira, but the attempt was too high, before capitalizing with a shot from senior Phil Frost, who was given the go-ahead pass from sophomore Josh Bellomo, to put the Eagles up 1-0, at the 12:05 minute mark. This goal was the 44th of Frost's career, tying him with Joey Melanson for eighth on the school's all-time list.

The Eagles nearly gave themselves a two-goal cushion just three minutes later as senior Cam Libbey fired a shot, but senior Ben Daniels made a defensive save to keep it a one-goal game. The teams traded shots on target with both goalies turning them away as the Eagles headed into the locker room leading, 1-0. 

After the break, the Husson offense kept its pace, as freshman Ian Lee netted a score off junior Josh Bean's corner thrown in from the left side of the field and to notch his collegiate goal. No more than three minutes ticked off the clock before Lee and Bean teamed up for their second goal of the day. This time, Bean made a corner thrown-in on the right side of the field and Lee was there to pick up the pieces and snuck his second career goal past Teixeira to give the Eagles a commanding 3-0 lead. With the two assist on the day Bean recorded his 20th of his career, tying him with Shane Coffin for thirteenth on the school's all-time list.

Eric Costantini nearly got one back for the Rams, but the junior midfielder's shot flew over the goal post and Suffolk continued to battle from behind. With the clock winding down Suffolk rallied, however, and got things rolling off a good penalty kick by sophomore midfielder Eugenio Ottino at the 68th minute. 

The Rams battled the Eagles for every minute and finally 74th minute mark, Alvin Di a freshman midfielder stormed up the midfield, weaving in and out of players and fired a shot past sophomore goalkeeper Cody Cross to make it a 3-2 game.  

Freshman Jordan Casey pulled Cross out of the net with just over 10 minutes remaining in regulation and had an opportunity to even the game, but sophomore Martin Lindholm made the defensive save to keep the Eagles ahead and seal the win for Husson.

Gettler said of the victory, "It was a great win for guys on the road after a long bus ride. It was a great game to get the guys ready for the weekend versus two fantastic teams."

Husson is back in action Saturday, Sept. 5 when they travel to Babson Park, Mass. to face Babson in 12 p.m. game. Suffolk hits the road for first time on Saturday, Sept. 5 as it visits Pine Manor for a 3 p.m. game.

Husson Football Holds Second Scrimmage

BANGOR, Maine - Coach Gabby Price put Husson through its final preseason scrimmage Thursday afternoon at Winkin Sports Complex.

Price put his team through a normal gameday experience, starting with the pregame routine - a team stretch followed by position drills and special teams work.

The scrimmage consisted of nine drives, with the first two series starting at the home team's 35-yard line and the final seven beginning at the 40. The first team offense and defense were only on the field for the first series, giving plenty of chances for the younger players to get reps.

The Eagles offense scored touchdowns on four of the nine series, including the first three, starting when Logan Steward capped a 10-play drive with a two-yard run into the endzone on second and goal. The highlight of the possession came on third and 12 when Joe Seccareccia hit Greg Moore for a 38-yard completion. After a 14-yard run by John Smith down to the one, Steward hit paydirt two plays later.

The first big play of the second series came on third and 12 when Stephen Day picked up the needed yardage on a run up the middle to move the chains. Cory Brandon connected with Tyler Bassett on a 31-yard pass play several plays later before Brandon called his own number on a 13-yard keeper. Two plays later, Brandon found A.J. McLaughlin on a six-yard touchdown pass, capping a nine-play drive.

The third possession ended on the fourth play when Matt Martin hit Tom Eppich in stride for a 47-yard touchdown pass.

The defense was not to be outdone, as Quan Soyini intercepted a pass on fourth and 12 to end the fifth drive.

The seventh drive included three sacks by the defense, two of them coming from Dominic Boulrisse. Boulrisse's second sack was followed by a Sam Thomas sack on fourth and 13, halting the Eagles offense.

The offense was able to find the endzone on the last play from scrimmage Thursday when Steven Davis caught a 49-yard touchdown pass.

After two practice sessions Friday, the Eagles close preseason camp Saturday morning with a practice in full pads, followed an hour later by the team's annual picture day, all in preparation for the season opener Saturday, Sept. 5, against Alfred (N.Y.). Kickoff is set for 12 p.m. ET.
