The Cadets (7-0) outscored the Saints 12-4 in the second and third quarters.

The teams were tied 4-4 after the first quarter, but Army West Point freshman and Queensbury graduate Brigid Duffy scored two of her game-high five goals to start the second to lead Army West Point on a three-goal run. It never relinquished the lead from there.
