The Seahawks moved to 8-5-2 overall while the Tribe saw its record go to 8-4-2. Both sides are tied for second in the CAA, along with Northeastern, with 10 points. All three own records of 3-2-1 in the league. Drexel remained in first with 11 points.

Both goals by Sizemore came from distance and gave the Seahawks one-goal leads. His first of the season came in the sixth minute from 24 yards out. Sizemore received a short pass from Colin Bonner in the middle of the field and his blast from 24 yards out beat the W&M goalkeeper and sank just below the crossbar at the 5:27 mark. His second goal of the evening was off a free kick from 25 yards out.

In an incredibly close race to qualify for the upcoming CAA tournament, there are seven teams within four points of each other and just one game left to play for each team.

The Seahawks host Northeastern on Nov. 6 at 7 p.m. in the regular season finale for both teams. UNCW seniors Michael Parrish and Hector Martin will be recognized on Senior Night.

“This was a game where I felt the first goal would win it,” said UNCW Head Coach Paul Cairney. “It was an even first half and both teams had chances. They put us under tremendous pressure in second half and we had to defend well.  Credit to them for taking their chances.”

After playing more than 70 minutes of scoreless soccer, Hofstra senior Amber Stobbs gave the Pride a 1-0 lead the 72:33 mark when she placed a shot from 12 yards out into the lower left-hand corner of the net for her second goal of the season. Junior Lulu Echeverry was credited with an assist on the play.

“We must recognize our 3 seniors: Meg (Kiser), Natalie (Winslow) and Nicole (Costa), who have been super Seahawks for four years and they have lots to be proud of,” said Cairney. “We will bounce back and get our young team ready for a very important off season.”

In a rematch of the 2012 championship game, the Pride improved to 10-5-3 overall and advanced to play top seed James Madison Nov. 8 in the second semifinal contest at University Park. The Seahawks, meanwhile, saw their season come to a close with a 9-10 record.
