FARMINGTON — Abby Trefsger tallied a first-half hat trick and finished with four goals as University of Maine at Farmington routed Vermont State University-Lyndon 14-1 in the Beavers’ home opener Wednesday at Prescott Field.

Trefsger scored her third goal early in the second quarter to put the Beavers (4-6, 1-3 NAC) up 5-0, with Ruby McMinis providing UMaine-Farmington’s other two first-quarter goals.

Oxford Hills graduate Ashlee Farrar and Mt. Blue grad Emma Dunn, along with Emilie Crocker, matched McMinis with two goals each. Grace Campbell and Riley Forrest scored one goal apiece. Dunn and Trefsger dished out two assists each.

Beavers goalie Kate Nowell made three saves and held the Hornets (0-7, 0-4 NAC) scoreless until 1:48 remaining in the game, when Thea Cooper scored from Kiara Mack.


CMCC SWEEPS SMCC: The Mustangs were stingy with their pitching in both games of a doubleheader against the SeaWolves, then broke the bats out in the second game to secure the sweep in Auburn.


Garrett Harvey pitched a complete-game shutout in CMCC’s 1-0 opening win. Trevor Phelps followed with another complete game in the 9-2 victory to cap the twinbill.

Brady Vincent singled in Lee Robertson in the bottom of the third for the lone run of game one. Harvey scattered five hits and seven walks and struck out five batters.

Phelps gave up just four hits in game two, while striking out four. Gage Hubbard hit a home run and had three RBIs, and Vincent matched that with three runs driven in.


DOW WINS NAC WEEKLY AWARD: UMaine-Farmington freshman Jessica Dow was named the North Atlantic Conference Co-Rookie of the Week on Wednesday.

Dow was an offensive catalyst during the Beavers’ four games for the week ending Sunday, April 14. She batted 6-for-13, with 10 RBIs, four runs scored and her first collegiate home run — a grand slam. She drove in a run in each of UMF’s four games.


CMCC DROPS PAIR: The SeaWolves swept a doubleheader against the host Mustangs, scoring 11 runs in both games.

Southern Maine Community College won the first game 11-1, then matched that total with an 11-3, six-inning victory in game two.

Olivia Scott drove in the lone run in game one for CMCC, which was held to four hits. Keira Greene drove in two runs and Logan Arsenault had two of the Mustangs’ seven hits in game two.


UMF’S THOMPSON TAKES HOME HONOR: UMaine-Farmington freshman Charlie Thompson was announced as the NAC Men’s Rookie of the Week on Tuesday.

Thompson earned the honor with his performance in the decathlon at the Monks Invitational. He placed sixth overall in the event, amassing 4,525 points. His top finishes were runner-up showings in the discus and 1,500-meter run and third-place efforts in the shot put and pole vault.

Thompson was one of the three Beavers to be the first in program history to compete in the event, along with Ben Vachon and Thomas Gingras.
