Key stats

 

  • Jasmine Colbert scored twice, UAlbany’s first goals of the season
  • Army scored three goals in the final 22 minutes, including the game-winner in the 89th
  • UAlbany outshot Army West Point 8-7, including 3-0 in the first half
  • Five of Army West Point’s seven shots were on target

 

Coach Bochette: “For me, tonight was a good indiator that our team is still in search of our true identity.  We controlled the game well for 70 minutes to build a 2-0 lead, but our response to Army’s resolute pushback clearly wasn’t quite what it needed to be.  This is all part of the learning process, however, and there are many lessons, both positive and negative, that we will take away from this performance.  Full credit to Army for turning the game on its head and for having the quality and work rate to pull back three goals in less than 25 minutes.”
