The Lady Mariners came up short in each of the three games played at the University of Maine Dome in a weekend series against Fisher College.
On Friday, MMA sophomore Mallery Stanley made her collegiate debut in the pitcher’s circle and allowed two hits by the Falcons in a 6-5 Fisher victory.
But Stanley struggled with her control, walking 14 batters and giving up a three-run homer to Fisher’s Jackie Streeter in the second inning, which put the Falcons in front 5-2.
In Saturday’s doubleheader, the Falcons again eked out a one-run victory, winning the first game 10-9 before rolling to a 13-4 win in the second game.
The Lady Mariners will be back in action on Saturday when they face the University of Maine – Presque Isle in a doubleheader starting at 10 a.m. at the UMaine Dome.
MMA’s lacrosse team will open its season Saturday at Castine, hosting Green Mountain College at 1 p.m.
