Brookville, N.Y.-The top-seeded and host LIU Post Pioneers, who are ranked number 13 in the nation in NCAA Division II women's soccer, got a goal from Andrea Huntzinger just 1:51 into the match, as LIUP defeated the visiting and number four-seeded University of Bridgeport Purple Knights, 1-0, on Wednesday afternoon on Long Island.  The Pioneers move on the ECC Women's Soccer Championship final on Saturday versus Mercy College, who defeated Molloy by a 1-0 score also on Wednesday afternoon, with a 15-2-1 record.  UB closes out its 2017 season with an 8-8-2 overall record.
