YORK, PA - The York College women's soccer team has announced their 2012 schedule.
The Spartans begin the season with a trip to the Alvernia University Tournament on August 31 and September 1. The Green and White face Ursinus in the first round to open the season. The tournament championship game will kick off at 2:30 and will be preceded by the consolation game at 12:00 pm.
York then makes a pair of local non-conference trips, traveling to Elizabethtown on September 5 and to Albright on September 8 prior to making their 2012 home debut on September 9 against Maritime (NY).
York takes to the road again on September 12 (Dickinson) and 15 (St. Mary's) before opening a season-high five game home stand. That stretch features a pair of Capital Athletic Conference contests as they host Marymount on September 22 and Mary Washington on October 6.
After a trip to Gettysburg on October 10, the Spartans close out their home slate with an October 13 game against CAC rival Salisbury.
York closes out the regular season with a three-game road trip to Frostburg, Wesley and Catholic.
The CAC Tournament kicks off with first round games on October 27 followed by the tournament semifinals on October 30. The championship game will be held on November 3 at the highest remaining seed.
The Spartans will look to improve upon last season's seven-win performance. York was very good in conference play as they went 6-2 in the loop before falling in overtime to Mary Washington in the first round of the conference tournament.
