Holy Cross senior captain Dane Kenny (Williston Park, N.Y.) tallied the game-winning penalty kick in the sixth round of shots to help the Crusaders defeat Army in the Patriot League men’s soccer semifinal game on Friday evening at Glenn Warner Soccer Facility. The No. 2 seed Black Knights and the No. 3 seed Crusaders played to a 1-1 draw over 110 minutes of action, before Holy Cross won in the shootout, 4-3. Holy Cross is now 9-8-2 overall, while Army concludes its season at 12-3-3.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to play for the Patriot League championship,” Holy Cross head coach Marco Koolman said. “This is a great experience for the team to have a chance to earn an NCAA bid. The players deserve this for all of the hard work and dedication they put in this year.”

The Crusaders will take on No. 1 seed Navy in the championship game of the Patriot League Tournament on Sunday, Nov. 17 at 1:00 p.m. in Annapolis, Md. The Mids defeated No. 4 seed Bucknell, 1-0 earlier in the evening. The Crusaders will be making their fourth appearance in the Patriot League championship game and their first since 2008. Holy Cross won the championship during the 2002 season, as it also made it to the final game in 2001. The Crusaders nine wins this season are their most since 2008, when they went 9-5-5.
