Marsalis Beckford (Brantford, Ontario) set up the first Crusader scoring opportunity as Andrews knocked a header past Navy's goalkeeper Thomas Jenkins, giving Holy Cross an early 1-0 lead. With little hesitation, Miller scored the Crusaders' second goal just 1:04 later, assisted by Sefton Kincaid (Orlando, Fla.). Ending the first period, Holy Cross held onto a 2-0 lead.
Assisted by Andrews, Jon Werth (University Park, Md.) continued the Crusaders' offensive momentum into the second half, scoring with 28:57 left in the game.
Navy's efforts were finally rewarded as Justin Waskey made a shot inside the box, allowing Anthony Parker to catch the rebound and put into an open net. With 14:45 left in the game, Navy scratched the Crusaders' shutout, 3-1.
With 7:40 left in the game, Holy Cross was far from ending the game quietly. Receiving a pass from Felipe Castrillon (Weston, Fla.), Andrews took the ball down the field going one-on-one with Jenkins, netting the fourth Crusader goal in the left corner.
Crusaders' goalkeeper Thomas Booth (Patchogue, N.Y.) and Jenkins both had three saves.
