Team ends a brilliant season with a 13-2 record

After a tough double overtime win over Albany Pharmacy the previous night, the women's soccer team was Un able to muster a victory against a Daemen College of Amherst, N.Y. in the semifinals of the 2014 USCAA Soccer National Tournament held in Charleston, W.V.
