Due to a significant rise in positive COVID-19 cases within the Yale women's soccer program, the squad is unable to field a team, and the scheduled game between Brown and Yale on Saturday has been canceled, in accordance with Ivy League policy.
The league announced the decision yesterday.
Due to NCAA and Ivy League policy, the contest cannot be rescheduled to a later date to complete the Ivy League season due to the Sunday NCAA deadline for submission of league automatic qualifiers to the NCAA Tournament. Therefore, the game is declared a no contest.
With the cancellation, teams will have an unequal number of games completed. As a result, league policy adopted by the Athletics Directors governing all sports specifies in soccer that the Ivy League champion and the NCAA automatic qualifier will now be determined by conference winning percentage based on points, rather than the number of total points typically used in the league’s soccer standings.
