WOMEN'S SOCCER POST SEASON HOPES ON THE LINE AT ALBANY

     BOSTON - The University of New Hampshire women’s soccer team is set to take the field this Sunday when they complete against the Great Danes of Albany in a final regular season match that features major post season implications.
     The women have yet to clinch a 2006 America East Tournament birth, but a number of scenarios entitle the Wildcats to finish as low as fifth or as high as eighth. With a victory over Albany, the Wildcats will extend the league’s longest active America East Championship tournament appearance streak to six consecutive years.
    Boston University and Hartford take to the field on Sunday and the winner of that contest will be crowned the regular season champion. Both teams will finish either first or second and will receive a first round bye. Binghamton and Maine have also clinched playoff births. UNH along with Albany, Stony Brook and Vermont are all fighting for the last two spots in the season’s tourney.
    The 2006 America East Women's Soccer Championship's first and semifinal rounds will be held at the top seed on October 27 & 29. The finals will be held on November 4 or 5 at the highest remaining seed.
