than eight minutes left in the half, for a 1-0 halftime lead.


In the second half, Jordan LeBlanc scored on a penalty kick nine minutes into the match after a Navy

foul in the box.  Leblanc then hit Harmon in the middle of the box for the Monarchs third goal of the night with 12 minutes

left and the two hooked up again with a little more than seven minutes left to complete the scoring.
