Owls Take Two on Sunday, Three for the Weekend at Eastern Maine
(BANGOR, ME) -- The University of Maine-Presque Isle baseball team swept a doubleheader at Eastern Maine Community College on Sunday, 11-0 and 11-5. Presque Isle took three games from EMCC on the weekend as they defeated the Golden Eagles 12-0 on Saturday.
UMPI is now 10-20 on the season including a 5-2 record against USCAA teams. EMCC is now 3-17. Me.-Presque Isle will now prepare this week for a pair of doubleheaders against Newbury College next Saturday and Sunday. The games were originally scheduled to be the first games played in Presque Isle for coach Leo Saucier's squad this season. However, field conditions in the city may require a venue change to a more southern location. A decision will be made later this week.
