Women's Soccer Semi-Final Matchup Moved To Saturday

BOSTON, Mass.—Due to the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the Little East Conference has moved UMass Boston women's soccer's semifinal home matchup to Saturday November 3 at Noon.

The Beacons will host the winner of fourth-seeded Keene State and fifth-seed UMass Dartmouth, in a LEC Quarterfinal matchup that will take place either Wednesday or Thursday of this week.

UMass Boston is the top seed in the 2012 LEC Tournament and would host the LEC Championship Game Sunday at Noon, if they win their semifinal matchup Saturday. Originally, the Beacons were scheduled to play Thursday afternoon, but large-scale flooding and power outages across the Northeast forced the conference to make their second scheduling change in three days.
