Towson Captures CAA Women's Soccer Regular Season Title

Stony Brook clinched the sixth and final seed on the regular season’s final day to join Towson, Hofstra, Monmouth, Northeastern, and William & Mary in the six-team field for the 2023 CAA Women’s Soccer Championship, which begins with first round action Thursday in Maryland and on Long Island.

Towson won the CAA regular season title with a 2-0 victory in Sunday’s head-to-head battle with Hofstra for the top seed. The Tigers are CAA regular season champions for the first time and surpass a previous program-best finish of a tie for fourth in the CAA in 2022. Towson is into the CAA Championship in back-to-back years for the first time since joining the league in 2002.

Hofstra makes its seventh-consecutive trip to the CAA Championship, is the defending champion, and has won five of the last six league titles. The Pride is a top-two seed for the fifth time in the last seven seasons and won last year’s title as the No. 8 seed.

Monmouth will be the No. 3 seed and will face No. 6 Stony Brook on Thursday at 4 p.m. on Long Island. The Hawks were regular season champions in 2022 and have made the conference championship in both years as a league member, as have the Seawolves, who are the sixth-ranked team for the second-consecutive year. Monmouth defeated Stony Brook, 1-0, on September 24 in West Long Branch.

Northeastern earned the No. 4 seed and a matchup with No. 5 William & Mary on Thursday at 7 p.m. in Maryland. The Huskies have qualified for their 13th straight CAA Championship – the conference’s longest active streak – while the Tribe is back for the second-straight year. Northeastern was the No. 3 seed in 2022 and hosted the CAA title game; W&M got in as the No. 7 seed a year ago. The matchup will be a rematch of Sunday’s meeting between the teams, won 2-1 by William & Mary in Williamsburg.

The winner of the Monmouth-Stony Brook game will take on Hofstra on Long Island, while the team to emerge from the Northeastern-William & Mary contest will face top-seeded Towson in Maryland. Both contests will be played on Sunday at 1 p.m.

The highest remaining seed will host the title game of the 2023 CAA Women’s Soccer Championship on Saturday, Nov. 4 or Sunday, Nov. 5. The date and time of that contest will be set next Sunday.

Both of Thursday’s contests – and all five of the championship – can be seen on FloFC.
