WORCESTER — For the first time in Assumption College history, the Women’s Soccer team hosted the Northeast-10 Conference Championship game at the Multi-Sport Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The Greyhounds defeated Stonehill in the quarterfinals and Franklin Pierce University in the semifinal round after clinching their first @TheNortheast10 Regular Season Championship in college program history (tournament began in 1985) and first finals appearance since 2005.
The Golden Knights took the lead early on a Jourdan Thompson goal at 19:17 in the 1st half and didn’t look back from there as they scored another two in the 2nd, propelling them to a 3-0 win over the Greyhounds. Saint Rose dominated Assumption offensively, carrying a 24-10 advantage in total shots. The win gave Saint Rose its 7th NE-10 women’s soccer championship win, all of which have happened in the last decade.
A season high 728 fans attended the championship game, the most Assumption has seen all season. Members of #HoundsNation were loud and proud to represent Assumption at the Code Blue game.
The Greyhounds could still earn a 2014 NCAA Championship Tournament bid when the field is announced Monday night. Assumption’s season record stands at 15-4-1 (12-2 NE-10) record, with two of those losses coming at the hands of the Golden Knights.
