In the first meeting between the two programs since 2011, Army earned a 2-0 victory. Though a two-goal deficit, the game proved much closer as the score stood at 0-0 heading into halftime.

Then freshman, Cesar Ceja (Port Chester, N.Y.) netted his first collegiate goal in the 63rd minute. Wes Finch (Newburgh, N.Y.), scored the second goal for Marist in the 88th minute. Sokalski recorded four saves in his first shutout as a Red Fox.
