Men’s Soccer and Volleyball Also Begin Little East Conference Play This Week

UMass Boston’s women’s soccer team won their first Little East Conference regular season title since 2014 over the weekend, and now they have the No. 1 seed in the conference tournament that begins this week. The No. 1 Beacons will host the winner of Tuesday’s game between No. 4 Eastern Connecticut State University and No. 5 Plymouth State University on Thursday at 7 p.m.

The team clinched the No. 1 seed on Saturday, after a 0-0 tie against Western Connecticut State University. Both teams ended up with a 7-0-1 record in the conference, but UMass Boston gave up fewer goals in conference games (4 vs. 8).

This is the third time the 17-2-1 Beacons have been the No. 1 seed in the LEC Tournament. The Beacons won the tournament in 2012.
