Beavers leads FSU to 2 wins

Bobcats defeat Guilford, Lasell

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — Former Times-News Player of the Year Shari Beavers belted two home runs and worked a complete game as Frostburg State swept two games on the opening day of the Fastpitch Dreams Spring Break Tournament in Myrtle Beach, S.C., Tuesday.

The Bobcats earned their first win over Guilford in the first game, 11-3 and cruised by Lasell later in the morning, 10-4.

FSU (7-3) scored a combined eight runs in the first two innings against Guilford. The Bobcats turned in a stellar second inning, scoring five runs to take an 8-3 lead going into the third.

The five-run spurt was fueled by Caitlin Lovend who blasted a two-run home run, and Beavers, a Fort Hill standout, continued the hot hitting with a home run of her own to bring in one more run.

Lovend went 3-for-4 with three RBIs in the opener. Senior Taylor Vandegrift was 3-for-3 with two RBIs.

Freshman Mary Ann Moore snagged her third win to post a 3-2 overall record in just five innings of play.

In the win over Lasell, the Bobcats put up two in the first inning to post the score at 2-1. The Lasers countered back in the fourth with two to grab a slim 3-2 lead. The Bobcats would remain scoreless as the Lasers posted one more run in the sixth for the 4-2 advantage.

A late scoring surge propelled the Bobcats to the win as they put up eight runs in the seventh inning. FSU scored two runs as Vandegrift and Moore crossed the plate from a single by Allegany’s Bailey Ellsworth and a fielding error.

Renay Aubel and Beavers then slammed back-to-back home runs to bring home a total of three runs.

Megan Butzner powered a double and was brought home by yet another double, this time from Taylor Blevins.

Vandegrift and Ellsworth brought two more batters across the plate with two singles to close out the eight-run inning for the 10-4 final.

Aubel finished 2-for-3 with three RBIs and a walk. Vandegrift and Lovend both finished 2-for-4 with a walk apiece.

Tossing a complete game, Beavers took home her fourth win (4-1) with seven strikeouts.

The Bobcats meet Guilford again today at 9:30 a.m. and then face Rutgers-Newark at 1:30 p.m.
