[WOMEN'S SOCCER: Conference Tournaments] A year after finishing in last place, UMBC completed the best turnaround in America East women’s history by claiming the program’s first league title with a 2-1 win over Stony Brook Saturday night in Baltimore. The Retrievers had totaled 11 wins over the last six years but won their 13th game of 2013 behind goals from Nikki Boretti and Jessy Brown. Hannah Keane scored the lone goal in the 70th minute to give top-seeded San Diego State a 1-0 win over Boise State in the Mountain West final. Weber State won the Big Sky on penalty kicks. For all the tournament action.
