Cleveland, Tenn. - The Shorter College women's soccer team will now compete in its Southern States Athletic Conference semifinal match up with top-seed Lee University on Thursday, Nov. 12 at 6 p.m. in Cleveland, Tenn.

The match, originally scheduled for Wednesday at 7:30 p.m., has been rescheduled to Thursday due to inclement field conditions.

The Lady Hawks (8-8-2) are the No. 4 seed in the conference tournament and advanced to the semifinal round with a 3-0 shut out of fifth-seeded Southern Wesleyan University last Saturday at Ben Brady Field.

Shorter got goals from Rachel Wood, Shari Langley and all-time leading scorer Pauline Van Der Henst en route to a victory in the first post season women's soccer game to be held on the new surface.

Lee (15-2), the defending NAIA national champions, are currently ranked No. 2 in the NAIA Women's Soccer Top-25 Poll and have won 13 matches in a row.

The Lady Flames' last loss came on Sept. 12, a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Lindsey Wilson College, which finished the 2009 regular season ranked No. 1 in the country.

Lee crushed No. 8 seed Columbia (S.C.) College, 9-0, in its SSAC quarterfinal last Saturday night.

Shorter dropped an 8-0 decision to Lee back on Oct. 8 in Cleveland.
