The College of Staten Island women’s soccer team will introduce a new chapter to its program’s history this weekend, when they take part in the 2015 NCAA Division III Women’s Championship Tournament. The Dolphins will travel to Mechanicsville, PA, to take on No .1 Messiah College, perhaps the most seasoned team in the tournament. Game time is 11:00am on Saturday. At 1:30pm, Montclair State University will take on Springfield College, and the two winning sides will play again at Messiah on Sunday afternoon at 1pm.
The Dolphins enter the tournament with a record of 13-4-1, having defeated Lehman College on Saturday for their seventh CUNYAC Championship, clinching their first-ever trip to the national foray. Messiah has had a tremendous history of national success having won five national championships, the last of which came in 2012. The Falcons are 18-0-2 this season, and are making their 16th-straight appearance in the national championship tournament.
The teams shared no common opponents in 2015, and the meeting between the two schools will be the first in their history. More information on the tournament will be available in the coming days.
