After opening the short fall season with a doubleheader win vs. conference opponent NHTI, the SMCC baseball team is on an eight game skid, in which they have only come away with one win. The pressure is starting to mount as The Seawolves find themselves with just three wins, and six losses to go along with one draw during the short fall season.
SMCC Softball, is trending in the right direction, especially when compared to last season. This Seawolves Softball squad has already won three games, which is one less than last fall and spring combined. SMCC Softball now sits right on top of the .500 mark.
Out of the four most recent opponents, SMCC has squared off with CMCC twice, on two separate occasions. On the 15th, a home doubleheader had extra innings in store for both games. SMCC would fall 1-0 in the first of two games, and the second would be called due to darkness, resulting in a 3-3 tie.
The softball team has had two doubleheaders cancelled, due to The Mustangs inability to field a complete team.
Dean College hosted the Baseball team two days later, on September 17th, which did not fare well for this SMCC squad. The always competitive Dean College were able to handle SMCC with ease, winning the two games, 12-8 and 14-0, respectively.
The softball team was able to split the day with Dean resulting in a 9-6 win, and a 12-2 loss during the second half of the doubleheader.
The following Thursday, SMCC traveled to Auburn, Maine for another doubleheader to be hosted by rival Central Maine Community College. Coach Yanni and his team were able to come away victorious in the first contest, posting their third victory during fall competition, 4-2. The second game went into extras to be played under the lights, resulting in an 11-10 nail biter, as SMCC found themselves on the losing end.
The University of Maine-Farmington easily took care of business on the 24th, as The Beavers were able to sweep the day with 21-3 and 11-1 victories. Playing out of conference, the Beavers are a Division 3 team and managed to outclass The Seawolves with ease.
NECC hosted the SMCC Softball team on 24th as well, and the outcome was more favorable. SMCC easily beat Northern Essex Community College 16-2 and 7-3.
The SMCC Softball squad can only look up from last year’s disappointing season, and have already made an evident effort in improving their game. Coming off of a 4 win season, the SMCC Softball squad can easily improve on last year’s poor record.
