The New England Mutiny booked their ticket to the WPSL East region final after beating Yankee Lady FC 2-0 at Saint Joseph’s High School in Trumbull, Ct.

After a scoreless first half, the Mutiny opened the account in the 51st minute on a Rachel Ugolik goal before Kate Howarth widened the margin in the 70th minute.

Saturday’s semifinal was originally pitted the Mutiny against the Seacoast United Phantoms, but the New Hampshire-based outfit dropped out after they were unable to field a full roster for the match. The league briefly awarded the win to the Mutiny before reshuffling the playoff field.

The Mutiny (8-1-0, 24 points), which clinched the Power 5 Division, will face the Northeast Division champion Boston Breakers Reserves (10-0-1, 30 points), which beat the Hershey Soccer Club in the opposite East region semifinal, on Sunday at 3:00pm. The game will take place at Hormel Stadium in Medford, Mass.

The winner of Sunday’s East region final will punch its ticket to the WPSL Championship, which will take place during the weekend of Jul. 25-26 in Oklahoma City, Okla.
