Stony Brook, N.Y. - The Stony Brook men's soccer team has clinched the No. 3 seed in the upcoming America East Championship and will host No. 6 seed Binghamton in the quarterfinals on Saturday, Nov. 3 at LaValle Stadium at 12 p.m.

In addition, due to weather conditions related to Hurricane Sandy, Stony Brook has canceled its trip to West Virginia for what was scheduled to be a non-conference game on Tuesday at 7 p.m.

The Seawolves finished the regular season with a 4-3-0 America East record to finish at least third in the standings for the fourth consecutive season. They are looking to defend their conference championship, which they won as the No. 2 seed in 2011.

Stony Brook is 5-0-2 all-time in home playoff games, and in both ties, the team advanced in penalty kicks. The Seawolves defeated the Bearcats in the regular season back on Oct. 10, 2-1 at Binghamton.

The winner of Saturday's quarterfinal will advance to play at No. 2 seed UMBC Wednesday Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. The final is scheduled for either Saturday, Nov. 10 or Sunday, Nov. 11.
