"This was a good win against a difficult opponent on the road.We were patient and composed and managed the game well. We will need to tighten up this week as we prepare to face Navy in our home opener."- ODU Head Coach Alan Dawson.

After a 0-0 first half, Harmon put the Monarchs on the board on sophomore Gideon Asante's (Sunyani, Ghana) low, driven cross from the right side. Harmon took an initial shot from 18 out that GW's keeper Alejandro Almodovar punch it wide, then Asante found Harmon repositioned on the back post for the touch-in goal.

ODU, which has advanced to the second round of the NCAA College Cup seven of the last nine years nearly took the lead in the 11th minute on Alex Vaughan's left-footed strike from 20 yards, but the attempt clanged off the right post and was cleared away.
