Spartans Return to CAC Championships

YORK PA. - The York College women’s soccer team (12-4-2) is headed off to the CAC Women’s Soccer Championship game on Saturday against Christopher Newport (10-9) at 2 p.m. at Christopher Newport.

The Spartans won their semifinal CAC tournament game with a 3-1 win over Mary Washington (full story here).  The Spartans will look to continue their recent scoring success as the head to Virginia to take on the Captains.  Christopher Newport faced Salisbury in their semifinal game on Wednesday.  The Captains won the contest 3-1 after being down early in the match.  The Spartans and Captains face each other for the second time this season.  In their first meeting, York traveled to Christopher Newport and lost a 1-0 decision on the Captain’s senior day (Story here). 

The Spartans will look for redemption as they ride the bus down to Virginia. York will return to the CAC Championship match for the first time since 2008 and will look to emulate the 2007 team and bring home the title.

Coach Sterner on getting to CAC title game for the first time since 2008, “This is a fantastic opportunity for our team. We have worked very hard this season to put ourselves in position to play for a championship and we will get that chance on Saturday.”

Sterner also talked about the team’s motivation, “Christopher Newport is a strong team and I think tomorrow should be a fantastic showcase of CAC women's soccer. We are very excited to play the game."
