ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WUTR/WFXV/WPNY) – The goal for the Utica University Men’s and Women’s soccer teams was exactly the same on Thursday afternoon, as the fourth overall seed in the Empire 8 tournament, defeat top-seeded St. John Fisher and earn a place in the E8 Championship game on Saturday, and that is exactly what both teams did.

The women started the afternoon strong, with a barrage of eight goals from the combined sides including a hat trick from Junior forward Julianna Beaulieu, who prior to Thursday had only scored in three of the Pioneers’ eighteen total games.
