The opening round of Atlantic East (AE) Conference postseason play will take place on tomorrow, October 29, with No. 6 Manhattanville traveling to No. 3 Marywood and No. 5 Immaculata traveling to No. 4 Gwynedd Mercy. The top six teams in the conference participate in postseason play, leaving Neumann as the odd team out. Marywood, Gwynedd Mercy and Immaculata all finished their season with a 3-3 record, and needed to reach deep into the tiebreakers to determine their seeding.  

St. Mary’s capped off conference play with a 7-0 win over Immaculata, pushing them to 6-0 in conference and securing the No. 1 spot. Similarly, Cabrini finished off with a 8-0 win over Neumann, taking the No. 2 spot – with their only loss being the St. Mary’s. The two start off with a bye, and will play the winners from the opening round in the semifinals on Wednesday, November 2. St. Mary’s is slated to play the lower ranked seed out of the two. 

The Atlantic East Championship match is set for Saturday, November 5, and will be hosted by the remaining highest seed. Last season’s winner was Cabrini, who defeated the top seed St. Mary’s, 2-1, in overtime. The winner receives an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. 

In the regular season, Marywood defeated Manhattanville 5-0 – marking their third consecutive win in the matchup. Immaculata fell to Gwynedd Mercy in a tight 2-1 match earlier in October.

CC Record: 4-6
   

 

Six out of 11 teams move on to the Centennial Conference tournament. A crucial 1-0 overtime win over Swarthmore on Saturday determined that Haverford will be the sixth team to participate. Johns Hopkins had a narrow 1-0 victory over Bryn Mawr, putting them at No. 1 with a perfect conference record. Bryn Mawr will settle at No. 3, Franklin and Marshall at No. 2, Ursinus at No. 4, and Washington College at No. 5. 

Tournament play will commence on November 1 with No. 6 Haverford to No. 3 Bryn Mawr and No. 5 Washington College heading to No. 4 Ursinus. The winners will move on to the semifinals on November 3, with the winner of the first contest matching up against No. 2 Franklin and Marshall and the second against No. 1 Johns Hopkins. The championship is slated for Saturday, November 5, hosted by the higher ranked seed. 


While Ursinus used to be the powerhouse of the conference, Centennial has recently entered a new reign under Johns Hopkins. The Blue Jays have won the past three titles and been a force in Division III – including being the runner-up in last season’s NCAA Championship. Currently ranked fifth nationally, Hopkins will look to make another NCAA postseason run, with forces like three-time Centennial Conference Defender of the Week Anna Scott and offensive duo Abby Birk and Siena Urbanski powering them.


Franklin & Marshall also enters the postseason with a national ranking, currently sitting at No. 16. The Diplomats last took home a conference title in 2017 after defeating Hopkins 2-1. Bryn Mawr has been receiving votes in the polls for the past five consecutive weeks, unable to break into the rankings so far, despite a solid season from the Owls. With huge improvements over the past few years, Bryn Mawr is in contention for their first conference championship. Washington makes a return to the Centennial Conference tournament for the first time since 2017.

Coast-to-Coast Conference

Host: Higher Seed | November 2 & 5, 2022

3. Mary Washington

Overall Record: 5-12

Being a small three team conference, all teams will have a chance in the Coast to Coast Conference postseason. Salisbury finished 2-0, giving them the No. 1 seed and a bye straight into the championship game on November 5. The Gulls have gone undefeated this season, with no signs of slowing down for the postseason. They recently defeated then-No. 1 nationally ranked Rowan in an exciting 3-2 match, bringing their season to a perfect 15-0 and taking over the top spot in Division III this past week. A hat-trick from freshman McKenna Horner against the Profs earned her the honor of NFHCA Division III Offensive Player of the Week. In conference, Salisbury defeated Christopher Newport by a narrow 1-0 margin and Mary Washington 6-0.


No. 2 Christopher Newport will take on No. 3 Mary Washington in the semifinal on November 2. In their contest on Saturday, the Captains took down the Eagles 3-0. Christopher Newport was ranked earlier this season, and currently sits with a 13-4 record.


Last season, Salisbury claimed the C2C crown for the third consecutive time.

With conference play wrapped up, the Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC) has its field of four teams set. The conference’s top two seeds will be No. 1 Wilson and No.2 Keystone, while Sweet Briar will be at No. 4 after falling to No. 3 Cedar Crest 3-2.


No. 1 seed Wilson is aiming for a three-peat, having beat Cedar Crest and Keystone for the last two CSAC titles. Senior goalkeeper Allyson Shindler recently earned CSAC Defensive Player of the Week honors and has spun three straight shutouts for the Phoenix, who enter the weekend on a six-game winning streak.


No. 2 Keystone will be looking to claim its first conference title since 2018 and avenge a narrow 1-0 loss to Wilson in the regular season. The Giants bring in one of the nation’s more prolific offenses, scoring over three goals per game.


The final two teams include Sweet Briar, who feature reigning CSAC Offensive Player of the Week Avery Jones, and Cedar Crest, who boast the scoring machine that is Kiley Marone (she ranks fifth nationally in goals per game, at 1.46). Both teams are looking for their first CSAC Championship.


The final will be held on Saturday, November 5, with the winner earning the CSAC’s NCAA Tournament auto-qualifier.

Commonwealth Coast Conference

Host: Higher Seed | November 1, 3 & 5, 2022

     

1. New England

Overall Record: 9-9
CCC Record: 6-0
 

5. Salve Regina

Overall Record: 5-11
CCC Record: 2-4
     

2. Endicott

Overall Record: 14-4
CCC Record: 5-1
 

6. Nichols

3. Western New England

Overall Record: 11-5
CCC Record: 4-2
 

7. Gordon

Overall Record: 2-14
CCC Record: 0-6
     

4. Roger Williams

Overall Record: 11-7
CCC Record: 3-3
   

 

The Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) has crowned Endicott its champion the last three seasons, but the team it beat for each of those – the University of New England (UNE) – will be looking to stop the Gulls run in 2022. The Nor’easters enter the CCC postseason as the No. 1 seed, having put together a perfect regular season in conference play, while the rest of the field includes Endicott, Western New England, Roger Williams, and Salve Regina.


The CCC tournament dates are set, and after a few final games on Saturday, so are the seedings. After a play-in match on November 1 between No. 5 Salve Regina at No. 4 Roger Williams, the winner of that game will play in the semi-final against No. 1 UNE on Thursday, November 3. No. 2 Endicott will be hosting No. 3 Western New England on that same day. The two semifinal winners will meet on November 5 for the championship match, hosted by the higher seed. 


In the regular season, Roger Williams shutout Salve Regina 3-0, and Western New England fell to Endicott 4-0.


The top-seeded Nor’easters feature both the reigning CCC Offensive Player of the Week (Madi Robito) and Defensive Player of the Week (Lindsay Pych). Before Endicott’s recent rise, UNE had won the previous four CCC titles. Endicott’s Meaghan Hogan has won two Offensive Player of the Week awards this season and averages almost two-and-a-half points per game. Western New England have been road warriors, posting a 5-1 record away from Golden Bear Stadium, which could serve them well in the postseason. Roger Williams has shown strong defense with back-to-back shutouts, while Salve Regina goalkeeper Casey Febus is making nearly seven saves per game.


The winner of the CCC Tournament earns an auto-bid to the NCAA Tournament and previous winners in each of the last seven years have won their first NCAA postseason game.

Empire 8 begins their conference tournament on November 2 with a pair of quarterfinal matchups. 


Clinching the No. 1 seed and only one game away from a clean conference sweep, Hartwick will look to avenge their loss to Utica in the semi-final last year. Houghton, Utica, St. John Fisher, and Washington & Jefferson, and Keuka have also clinched spots. Keuka recently clinched their spot with a 4-3 overtime win over Nazareth, upsetting the Golden Flyers for the first time in five meetings.


After No 6. Keuka plays No. 3 St. John Fisher and No. 5 Washington and Jefferson meets No. 4 Utica in the quarterfinals, the winners will go on to play No. 2 Houghton and No. 1 Hartwick, respectively, on November 4. The victors will continue on to the championship match on November 6. Each game will be hosted by the higher seeded team, and the crowned winner will receive an automatic berth to the NCAA tournament. 


It was St. John Fisher who took home the trophy with a 3-0 win over Utica in the championship match. Every team that has clinched a spot so far has previously won an E8 championship title, except for Houghton.

After claiming their first Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) championship in 2021, Johnson and Wales will look to defend their crown after an undefeated regular season in conference play.


The GNAC Tournament opens up on Saturday morning with four quarterfinal matchups. The top-seeded Wildcats, fresh off a 16-1 regular season and 11-0 mark in GNAC play, host No. 8 St. Joseph (Conn.) at 12:00 p.m. ET,  a team they dispatched by a 3-1 score earlier in the season.


The winner of that matchup will face the victor of No. 5 Rivier and No. 4 Colby-Sawyer, who play at 12:00 p.m. ET as well. The higher-seeded Chargers will be eager for a rematch of last year’s GNAC title game, in which Johnson and Wales came away with a 4-1 win. The fifth-seeded Raiders will look to repeat its 1-0 victory over Colby-Sawyer in the regular season.


The other quarterfinals, both held at 11:00 a.m. ET, offer two intriguing matchups. No. 3 Saint Joseph’s (ME) hosts No. 6 Lasell, after a dramatic regular season matchup went the Lacers way. The Monks scored a late equalizer to force overtime in the final game of the year, but Lasell scored less than three minutes into the extra period. Meanwhile, No. 2 Simmons will host No. 7 Anna Maria. The Sharks lost just twice all season and dispatched the Amcats, 3-0, back in September.


The semifinals will be held four days later on Wednesday, November 2, while the championship will be hosted by the highest remaining seed on Saturday, November 5.

In a dramatic Saturday full of games, the top four teams have been decided for the Landmark Conference tournament. 


The top seed will be Scranton, who sit at 6-1 in conference play after their final win against Juniata. The Royals have now gone 5-0 in conference play after a loss to Elizabethtown, outscoring their opponents 26-2 during that stretch. Susquehanna, who will hold the No. 2 spot, fell 2-0 to Scranton a few weeks ago but have been otherwise perfect in Landmark play.


The rest of the field will include No. 3 Catholic and No. 4 Moravian. Catholic finished 5-2 in conference play, and both of the Cardinals losses have come by a single goal to the top two teams. Moravian meanwhile, secured the last spot with a big 8-0 win over Goucher. 


Scranton will be looking for a three-peat of Landmark titles, especially after earning a NCAA Tournament win last season before falling in the second round. Susquehanna (2018), Elizabethtown (2016), and Catholic (2015) aim to return to their glory days and earn the Landmark’s auto-bid.

The first to finish conference play, the Liberty League commences postseason play on Tuesday, November 1 with a play-in match. No. 5 Skidmore travels to Poughkeepsie, N.Y. to take on No. 4 Vassar – the winner of which will go on to play No. 1 Rochester in Rochester, N.Y. on Friday, November 4. On the same day, No. 3 William Smith will travel to No. 2 Ithaca. The winner of those two games will play for the championship on Sunday, November 6. The Liberty League winner receives an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. 


Last season, Vassar defeated Ithaca 1-0 in dramatic overtime fashion – on a penalty stroke no less – to claim the Liberty League title. It was the Brewer’s second conference title after their first in 2018. Skidmore’s last postseason appearance was in 2019, when they fell to Vassar in the semifinal match. 


In regular season play this year, Vassar defeated Skidmore 2-1. When Ithaca matched up with William Smith just recently, they blanked the Herons 2-0. Rochester’s lone conference loss was to reigning champion Vassar, who they will match-up with first if Skidmore falls.

With a dramatic 4-3 overtime win over Plymouth State to close out conference play, Southern Maine clinched the No. 1 seed in the Little East Conference Tournament for the first time in program history. The Huskies will attempt to come away with their second LEC crown and first since 2021.


After the culmination of conference play on October 29, the field of eight has been set. It doesn’t include reigning champion Eastern Connecticut, but seven other teams are hoping to make their mark in the Little East record books.


All but one team in the field will finish the regular season with a winning record in conference play and the LEC features a plethora of talented offenses. No. 3 Castleton features reigning LEC Offensive Player of the Week Emily Harris — who has won three times — and score over four goals per game as a team, good for 11th in D-III. Worcester State has three-time LEC Goalkeeper of the Week Madison Ferrara, who ranks ninth nationally in save percentage (.837). Other teams to focus on include 14-time LEC Champion No.4 Keene State, who looks for its first title since 2018, and three-time winner No. 5 Plymouth State. The Panthers won three straight from 2000 to 2002, but look to regain their previous highs.


Play kicks off on Tuesday, November 1 with four matches. No. 1 Southern Maine will host No. 8 Framingham State, No. 7 Westfield State travels to No. 2 Worcester State, No. 3 Castleton takes on No. 6 Fitchburg St, and No. 4 Keene St clashes with No. 5 Plymouth State. The semifinals will take place on November 3. All matches will be hosted by the higher seed.


The winner of the LEC Championship, held on Saturday, November 5, will earn the conference’s NCAA Automatic Qualifier.

The 2022 Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) Commonwealth Tournament opens on Monday, October 31 with a play-in game between No. 4 Widener and No. 5 Albright. The Pride will be favored after taking a 3-1 decision over the Lions back in September, and will be eager for a rematch with top-ranked Messiah after falling to them in last year’s title game, 7-3.

No. 1 Messiah, who is ranked eighth in the NFHCA Division III Coaches Poll, will be a formidable foe. The Falcons, who enter the tournament on an 11-game win streak, have claimed a remarkable 14 straight MAC Commonwealth Titles. 

The other semifinal will be contested between the second seed, York – who ranks 15th in Division III – and No. 3 Alvernia. York has one final non-conference game but has won four of their last five, the only loss coming against the aforementioned Messiah in overtime. The Spartans beat Alvernia, 2-0, in the regular season, but the Golden Wolves have rattled off three straight wins ahead of their season finale.

The MAC Commonwealth Final will be held on Saturday, November 5 and the winner will receive an automatic bid to the 2022 NCAA Division III Field Hockey Tournament.

The 2022 Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) Freedom Tournament also starts on Halloween, with No. 4 FDU-Florham hosting No. 5 Misericordia in a play-in game in Madison, N.J. The Devils seek to return to heights they hit back in 2018-19, when they took back-to-back MAC Freedom titles. The Cougars, meanwhile, slipped into the tournament by virtue of a tiebreaker after finishing as runners-up last season.

Either team will have a stiff test in the semifinals, where No. 1 DeSales awaits. The Bulldogs went a perfect 7-0 in conference play and are seeking their first conference title. DeSales finished as runners-up in three straight years from 2017 to 2019, but will feel confident of a return to the championship game after beating both their potential opponents in the regular season.

In the other semifinal, No. 3 Stevens look to get their title defense underway as they head to face No. 2 Arcadia. The Ducks will have an uphill battle as the second-seeded Knights rolled to a 4-0 shutout against them on October 19. Arcadia has yet to win a MAC Title but were runner-ups in the Commonwealth back in 2018.

The MAC Freedom title game will be held on Saturday, November 5. There’s a potential for a guaranteed first-time winner should DeSales or Arcadia meet in the final. The victor will receive an automatic bid to the 2022 NCAA Division III Field Hockey Tournament.

New England Collegiate Conference

Host: Higher Seed | November 5 & 6, 2022

     

1. Husson

Overall Record: 8-5
NECC Record: 5-0
 

4. Thomas ME

All four teams of the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) will throw their hat in the ring for a conference title, beginning with semifinals on November 5. The tournament will be hosted by defending the champion, No. 1 Husson.

The Eagles have been shutting out conference opponents left and right this fall, and will face No. 4 Maine Farmington in the semi-final after confronting them this upcoming Sunday.

For the second match, the No. 3 seed will play the No. 2 seed. If New England College defeats Thomas this weekend, they will clinch the No. 2 seed, but either way – they will be seeing each other in the semi-final. After Thomas (ME) saw its initial season in the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) canceled due to COVID, the Terriers made a run to the conference title game in 2021—falling just short in overtime. New England College is also relatively new to the NECC, having joined in 2018, but has posted back-to-back winning seasons.

Husson won back in 2021 with an overtime goal from Adelle Foss against Farmington. Since that loss in the final, the Beavers have taken a steep fall into a 1-11 season.

Out of the 11 New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) teams, eight participate in postseason play. This gives us four electrifying quarterfinal matchups, which will be played on Saturday, October 29. No. 8 Hamilton will take on No. 1 Middlebury at 12:00 p.m. ET, while the remaining three contests – No. 7 Bates against No. 2 Tufts, No. 6 Bowdoin against No. 3 Trinity, and No. 5 Williams against No. 4 Amherst – will begin at 1:00 p.m. ET. All matches will be held at the higher seed’s home turf. 

It’s been another exciting season in the NESCAC – full of upsets, overtimes and high-quality play. The 2021 NCAA Champion Middlebury secured the No. 1 seed with only one loss on their season – which was to conference foe Trinity. The Panthers enter postseason play ranked No. 2 in NFHCA Division III Coaches Poll. Every team in this group – sans Hamilton – is currently ranked in the top-20. The NESCAC Champion receives an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament, and unsurprisingly, several other teams from the conference often end up receiving bids to continue their season. Last fall, Middlebury, Bowdoin, Trinity and Tufts all represented in the NCAA Tournament. 

This is a playoff where every game could be anyone’s for the taking, much like it was in season. In these same matchups in the regular season, Bowdoin upset Trinity 1-0, Tufts edged Bates 2-1, Williams fell to Amherst 3-1, and Middlebury just slipped past Hamilton 2-1. 

The semifinals are set for Saturday, November 5, where the highest remaining seed will host the lowest remaining seed, and the middle two teams will play against each other. The winners of those two matches will fight for the title of NESCAC champion on Sunday, November 6. 

The past four NESCAC Titles have gone to Middlebury. In all-time titles, the Panthers are tied with Bowdoin at eight, Williams holds three and Tufts has two – most recently winning in 2016. The closest Trinity has gotten to hoisting the trophy was as runner-up in 2017 and 2009.

Only the six top teams will participate in the New England Women’s and Men’s Conference (NEWMAC) tournament, beginning with two quarterfinal matches on November 1. The No. 4 seed will host the No. 5 seed, while the No. 3 seed will welcome the No. 6 seed. 

Sitting at 7-0 in conference and ranked tenth in the nation, Babson will be NEWMAC’s No. 1 seed. Honored with this title, the Beavers will automatically advance to the semifinal match on November 3 where they will face the 5/4 contest winner. The Beavers claimed the NEWMAC title for the third time in program history last season when they upset No. 2 MIT 1-0. This October, Babson brought MIT down in conference play by the same score.

Both MIT and WPI have secured their postseason berth, but are fighting for the first-round bye awarded to the No. 2 seed. The pair — who are both currently on a six game win-streak — will clash on Saturday, October 29 at 1:15 PM ET. Ranked No. 12 in the national rankings, MIT has gone 30-3 in overall conference play while WPI is close behind at 24-3.

The No. 2 seed will play the 6/3 game winner on November 3. 

With seeding to be determined by this weekend’s games, the bottom three to advance to the postseason will be Smith, Springfield, and Wellesley. 

The NEWMAC champion will be crowned on Saturday, November 5. This match, including all prior, will be hosted by the higher seed. The winner receives an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament.

4. Montclair State

Overall Record: 10-7
NJAC Record: 3-2
   

 

A dominant run through conference play saw Rowan clinch the New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) regular season title and the No. 1 seed in the NJAC Tournament with a game left. The third-ranked Profs outscored NJAC foes 23-3 in their first six games, sealing the top seed on October 22. Earlier in the season, Rowan reached as high as No. 1 in Division III – powered by the likes of NJAC award-winning players like Abby Hainsworth, Julia Patrone, Julia Cavicchio, Kristiina Castagnola, Tess Herman, and more. The Profs, who will be hosting the NCAA tournament championship, will begin their postseason by hosting No. 4 Montclair State on November 2. 


A worthy group of worthy challengers await Rowan, including No. 2 seed TCNJ. The Lions have a 10-5 record that includes a 3-1 victory over conference rival Kean and a narrow 2-1 loss to Division III’s current No. 1 Salisbury. TCNJ welcomes No. 3 seed Kean to Ewing, NJ for the semifinal on November 2. 


After Kean’s 1-0 win over William Paterson on Friday, the Cougars had to wait for Montclair State to fall to TCNJ on Saturday to secure the No. 3 spot. Kean, currently ranked No. 11 nationally, received a bid for the 2021 NCAA tournament after falling to Rowan in the NJAC final 1-0.


The NJAC championship is slated for Saturday, November 5. TCNJ has 15 titles all-time, but is seeking its first since 2019, while 2021 champion Rowan will be aiming to pass the halfway mark in the chase with its eighth.

Beginning Tuesday, November 1, No. 1 DePauw will host No. 4 Allegheny while No. 2 Ohio Wesleyan will host No. 3 Denison. The two winners will then meet on Saturday, November 5 to determine who will come out on top and continue their postseason run. 


DePauw finished with a clean sweep in conference play, after defeating Denison 1-0 on Saturday. Regning NCAC champion Ohio Wesleyan has only two losses on the season – one coming in overtime to DePauw. The Battling Bishops currently lead Division III in shutouts, with goalkeeper Meg McCarthy leading in goals against average (0.08) and save percentage (0.933). 


Despite ending league play with a loss, the Gators were able to clinch a spot in the tournament for the first time.

After getting deep into tiebreaker protocol, the six teams were given their spots for the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) tournament. Lynchburg, Shenandoah, and Washington and Lee were stuck in a three-way tie for first that results in a No. 1 spot for the Generals. No. 1 Washington and Lee and No. 2 Lynchburg will have a bye in the first round.


Quarterfinals will begin on November 1 with two matchups –No. 5 Bridgewater at No. 4 Roanoke and No. 6 Randolph-Macon at No. 3 Shenandoah. Those two teams who come out victorious will try their luck against one of the top two seeds, who receive a bye directly into semifinals on November 3. The coveted championship match will be played on November 5 at the higher seed’s home turf.


Shenandoah currently has a 15-2 record and No. 14 national ranking. Last year, the Hornets fell to Lynchburg 3-1 in the ODAC semifinal – but have since defeated their Hornet counterpart this season in regular conference play. 


Though unranked nationally going into the postseason, Lynchburg was ranked as high as No. 17 earlier this season. The Hornets posted a big 2-0 victory over then-No. 3 Johns Hopkins in September, and a 3-2 win against ODAC rival Washington and Lee (then ranked No. 13) in early October. 


Reigning ODAC champion Washington and Lee defeated Lynchburg 3-1 in last year’s championship match, propelling them to the NCAA tournament where they defeated Scranton in the first round. The Generals are currently ranked No. 18 in Division III. 


Roanoke, who stacked the end of their regular season schedule with the three aforementioned ODAC companions, finished off with three tough losses – including a 2-1 overtime defeat at the hand of Washington and Lee. Despite this, the Maroons clinched a postseason berth by downing all three of their other conference opponents.

The Southern Athletic Association (SAA) takes a page out of Division I’s book by having a set host for their conference tournament. Centre will play host this year at South Campus Field in Danville, KY. All six teams are invited to participate in SAA postseason play.

Rhodes secured the SAA regular season title and No.1 spot on October 23 after defeating Centre by a whooping 8-0. The Lynx are currently 11-2 on their season, with the chance to go undefeated in conference play on Saturday. Centre tidied up their conference play with a 1-0 victory over Transylvania to secure the No. 2 spot.

Quarterfinals are set for November 4, when No. 4 Concordia takes on No. 5 Transylvania at 11 AM ET, and No. 3 Marian clashes with No. 6 Sewanee at 2 PM ET. The top-two seeds each have a bye in the first round, so No. 1 Rhodes will go up against the winner of the 4/5 match at 11 AM ET while No. 2 Centre plays the winner of the second match at 2 PM ET. With little time between matches, the final will take place on Sunday, November 6 at 1 PM ET. All contests will be broadcasted live on the Centre Sports Network. 

In the 2021 championship match, Rhodes edged Centre in a thrilling 1-0 overtime contest. In all nine of the SAA tournaments, only Rhodes or Centre have won the title.

Just four teams in the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) continue into postseason play, and they jump right into semifinals on Wednesday, November 2. No. 1 Geneseo hosts No. 4 New Paltz at 4:00 p.m. ET and No. 2 Cortland hosts No. 3 Oneota at 4:30 p.m. ET. The two winners will advance to the championship match on Saturday, November 5, hosted by the higher ranked team. 


New Paltz, who are the reigning SUNYAC Champions, have a challenge ahead of them. The Hawks conceded their most disparate loss of the season when they fell to Geneseo 5-1 a few weeks ago. In a similar fashion, the Red Dragons of Oneonta fell to the Red Dragons of Cortland 4-0 when they met earlier this fall. Cortland’s single conference loss was a 2-0 match against Geneseo – who went 14-2 in the regular season and 6-0 in conference play. 


It was Cortland who fell 1-0 in the title contest last fall to New Paltz, after last winning the crown in 2017. The Red Dragons still hold the most SUNYAC titles at 15, with New Paltz trailing at six.
