The road to the America East championship will run through Catamount Country on Sunday.
UVM women’s soccer scored three unanswered goals, including two from junior Karen Wallace, to top UAlbany 3-1 in Thursday’s conference semifinal at Virtue Field.
Vermont senior Alex West tallied the eventual game-winner early in the second half, and the Cats’ victory propelled them to just their second-ever championship game and first on home turf.
UVM previously made it to the 2017 title game, but fell short against Stony Brook.
The Catamounts will have a shot at their first-ever league title on Sunday, Nov. 7 when the team hosts sixth-seeded New Hampshire at 2 p.m. The Wildcats won their lone league championship in 2014.
