  • The Crusaders' 1-0 overtime loss at the hands of the Navy Midshipmen dropped their record to 6-6-1 on the season and 4-2-0 in the Patriot League. The game was also senior night for the six Holy Cross seniors who were honored before the game. At half time the Luke Dunivant Award was presented to senior captain Monty Sanders (Temecula, Calif.). The award was established in memory of former Holy Cross men's soccer player Luke Dunivant, Class of 1997, who passed away in 2008 after a courageous battle with leukemia. The award is presented annually to a member of the men's soccer team who, like Luke, has inspired others by displaying outstanding courage, commitment to the team and sportsmanship during his career. 
  • Sanders' four assists and 10 points both rank fifth in the Patriot League.  
  • Sophomore goalie Kevin Wright (McKinney, Texas) collected four saves in the loss and his record is now  6-5-1 on the season. Wright's 4.92 saves per game are good for first in the Patriot league and 30th nationally. His .808 save percentage is seventh in the league and 42nd nationally.
  • Freshman Joey DeVivo (Ridgefield, Conn.) leads the team with five goals this season. His five goals and 10 points are the most by a Crusader freshman since Kyle Miller tallied seven goals and 16 points as a freshman in 2007. His five goals and 10 points also rank fourth and fifth respectively in the Patriot League.
