The Storyline
Earning a berth to the postseason with its 16th regular-season division title, No. 4 Humber women's soccer will face St. Clair (3-5-2, 4th West) in the quarter-final round of the 2018 OCAA Championship on Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. The winner will take on Cambrian or Seneca in the semifinal on Friday.  

The Tournament
Humber has qualified for its 13th straight tournament, winning four provincial titles during that span.
