Frostburg, Md. – Second-seeded Frostburg State University used a pair of first-half goals to end third-seeded St. Mary's College of Maryland's run at a second Capital Athletic Conference women's soccer championship title as the Bobcats posted a 2-1 victory in semifinal action Tuesday evening.

In just its first year as a CAC member, Frostburg State (15-3) will challenge for a league crown on Saturday at top-seeded Stevenson University, who was a 2-0 winner over fifth-seeded Salisbury University in today's other semifinal match.
Sophomore forward Amanda Wharton (Mt. Airy, Md./South Carroll) struck first for Frostburg at 23:00 as Wharton finished an open shot in front of the goal after receiving a cross from the right side from sophomore defender Liz Seligman (Rockville, Md./St. John's College).
First-year forward Adria Graham (Grantsville, Md./Northern Garrett) gave the Bobcats a two-goal cushion with an unassisted tally at 29:55.
