Rams to Take On Lasers At GNAC Women's Soccer Championship
On Saturday, Suffolk will be taking on number one seed, Lasell College, who maintains a 15-4-1 record this year and finished the regular season with an 11-2 record in GNAC play. This is the season consecutive season that the Lasers have advanced to the GNAC finals.
The Lasers claimed their first conference championship in 2010 with a 1-0 victory over Norwich University. Lasell will be looking to be the first team since 2002 to win consecutive GNAC championships as six different institutions have represented the conference in the NCAA tournament field since 2005. This marks Suffolk's first appearance in the conference finals.
Suffolk produced upsets in both the quarterfinal round and the semi finals to make their way to the Championship contest. The Rams stunned no. 3 Albertus Magnus on Wednesday with a 1-0 triumph in the semis to take their place in the final match. The outcome of Saturday's contest will determine the GNAC Tournament Champion, who will in turn earn an automatic qualifier to the NCAA Division III Women's Soccer Tournament.
Saturday's championship will be played at 1:00pm at Lasell's Taylor Field.
