In the semi, the Rams competed hard and had an excellent match to finish regulation play 0-0 with the UKC Blue Devils. After 2 – 15 minute overtime periods and 13 penalty kicks, the Blue Devils won the semi 1-0.
DAL AC and UKC are co-hosting the 2017 CCAA Women’s Soccer National Championship in Halifax with the competition site being the Mainland Commons . Because of the co-hosting, it was determined that should neither team win the ACAA Title, the team that would serve as the host in the CCAA event, would be the team that finished higher in league play. With the 1st place league finish, the DAL AC Rams are the host entry in the CCAA Nationals – Nov 7-11, 2017. The first round match-ups have been determined and the Rams will meet the Elans de Garneau (last years CCAA Champs) at Mainland at 5:30 pm Wed Nov 8.
