Glesener had two goals and two assists, while Johnson posted a hat trick for the third consecutive game and had an assist.
The Black Knights had 11 goal scorers on the afternoon. Avery Littlejohn had three points on a two goals and three assists. Alex Newsome and Will O’Donnell added multi-goal games as well with two each.
“We were a little tentative early, giving up that first goal,” Army coach Joe Alberici said. “We were able to rebound and go on an eight-goal run with six different goal scorers. I thought we played well in the first half and then tightened up in the second half and shut them out. It was a good win against a team that I think is going to have some success this year.”
Jacksonville (0-1) which opened its fifth season was led by Chase McIntyre. He had three of the four goals scored, while Fernando Milanes had the other tally for the Dolphins.
