KINGSTON, R.I. - The Butler women's soccer team placed fourth in the Atlantic 10 Conference and will play No. 5 seed St. Bonaventure in the first round of the conference tournament Thursday at 1:30 p.m.
BU, which finished league play 5-1-3, is currently enjoying one of its best seasons in recent years. The Bulldogs went 11-4-4 overall and 7-1-3 at home this year.
The Bulldogs will open the conference tourney against SBU, a team they haven't played. The Bonnies, a 5-4-0 in A-10 play, defeated Temple and Xavier but lost 3-0 to Dayton. Butler defeated all three of those teams this season.
Both teams are riding high as the regular season came to a close over the weekend. SBU is heading into the conference tournament on a three-match winning streak, while Butler is 3-0-1 in its last four contests.
