Farmingdale State will open the Division III women’s soccer tournament at McDaniel College, which is hosting first and second round games on November 12 and 13.

The Rams (11-8-3) meets McDaniel (16-2-1), who earned one of the 20 Pool C at-large bids after losing to Johns Hopkins 3-1 in the Centennial Conference Championship Game. The Green Terror are currently ranked No. 15 nationally and third in the Mid-Atlantic region. The match is set for Saturday at 11 a.m.

The other First Round game, which will begin at 1:30 p.m., features the University of Scranton (17-1-1) and Connecticut College (10-5-1).

The Rams, who rank 10th in the East region, claimed their ninth Skyline Title in the last 10 seasons with a 2-0 home victory over Mount Saint Mary in the Conference Finals. Freshman defender Elizabeth Dasilva (Franklin Square, N.Y.) scored the game-winning goal and junior Taylor Howard (Massapequa Park, N.Y.), who was named the Most Outstanding Player of the Championship, tallied the second and final goal of the game.

The winners of the First Round games will meet in the Second Round on Sunday.
