The College of William and Mary will face Hofstra University Friday night in the first CAA semifinal match ever hosted at Albert-Daly Field. The Tribe, winner of eight of its past nine matches, takes to the pitch looking for its first conference tournament win since 2004.

In its last meeting, the College defeated the Pride 1-0 in the first minute of overtime on a goal from senior midfielder Dani Collins. The Tribe should try to avoid overtime this weekend, as the College has been eliminated in the CAA semifinals on penalty kicks in the past three years.

A semifinal win would push the Tribe into Sunday’s title match against either James Madison University or Northeastern University.
