The Tri-State Conference helds its semifinals Sunday, with one or two surprises.Women
In New Jersey on Sunday the Fairfield University Women came from behind to tie the game and then in the second period of overtime scored to finish up 29-24. Fairfield will face the Vassar College Women on Saturday in the final. RPI and MSU will match-up for third and fourth place.
Marist traveled down to Kings Point, NY to play Merchant Marine Academy to decide Tri State regular season champions.
This has been a stop-start season in the Tri State but both Marist and Kings Point have managed to get through it ready to play. Both defeated RPI in tight games and really that's what set up this encounter. Officially both teams were unbeaten going into the match.
Marist pulled off a very big Tri-State Conference win early in the season, beating RPI 25-12.
RPI came into the season with a big roster and some experience, and certainly plenty of potential. Marist also has bolstered its numbers and looked fairly polished on the day.
The US Merchant Marine Academy is now clear atop the Tri-State Conference after beating William Paterson 50-5 Saturday.
The result was an impressive one as WPU is certainly one of the major competitors in the Tri-State Men's DII conference, and to have Kings Point beat them by 45 points is a bit of a head-turner.
