The game was the lowest scoring championship game in CAA history with the teams combining for six goals. The previous lowest scoring championship game occurred in 2011 when Delaware defeated UMass 9-7.

Towson senior attackman Spencer Parks scored a game-high two goals, including the game-winner. Junior attackman Joe Seider and junior midfielderTyler Konen each added goals for the Tigers.

Towson was held scoreless in the first half for the first time since April 12, 2014 at Penn State.
