Cheer on the Women's Soccer Team in the America East Quarterfinals!
The University of Hartford women’s soccer team will host the University of Vermont on Thursday, Oct. 31, at 6 p.m. in an America East Championship quarterfinal match-up.
The game will take place on campus at Al-Marzook Field at Alumni Stadium (behind the Sports Center).
The Hawks will be making their fourth straight appearance in the America East Championship, fresh off last season’s appearance in the title game against Stony Brook.
Hartford finished the 2013 regular season fourth in the America East.
Tickets for the quarterfinal against Vermont are $8 for adults, $5 for youth (14 and under), and $2 for University of Hartford students (and students of all America East Conference schools) with valid school ID.
Tickets are available by calling the Malcolm & Brenda Berman Athletics Ticket Office at 860.768.HAWK or emailing email@example.com. Fans who can’t make it to the game can also follow the action on HartfordHawks.com with live stats and free live video.
The winner of Thursday's quarterfinal match will advance to face the top-seeded UMBC Retrievers on Sunday, Nov. 3, at 1 p.m. in Baltimore. The 2013 title game will be held on either Nov. 9 or 10 at the home field of the highest remaining seed.
Hartford will be looking for its first America East title and trip to the NCAA Tournament since 2006, when the Hawks defeated the Maine Black Bears for the league title at Al-Marzook Field at Alumni Stadium.
The Hawks are led by America East Striker of the Year Chanel Johnson, who enters the championship with a team-best nine goals and 21 points. She is currently second in the America East in both goals scored and points. In addition, junior transfer midfielder Stephanie Santos earned co-Midfielder of the Year accolades. The pair was joined by seven additional players who were named to All-Conference teams, with defender Raelynn Mikell joining Santos and Johnson on the All-Conference First Team.
