USM (35-7) will play at noon today in the six-team, double-elimination event. The likely opponent will be Eastern Connecticut, which led UMass-Boston 9-0 when the game was halted by rain in the bottom of the fourth.

Troy Thibodeau of USM doubled in John Carey to break a scoreless tie in the fifth. Sam Dexter then doubled in Thibodeau.

The Huskies made it 3-0 when Forrest Chadwick doubled and Nick Grady tripled in the sixth.

Southern Maine closed the scoring in the eighth on back-to-back two-out doubles by Chris Bernard and Carey.

The tournament winner will advance to the NCAA Division III tournament next week.
