Making her first start in a month, Van Vlerah made five saves in goal, while Navy keepers Lizzie Barnes and Beth Reed each stopped one shot in 45 minutes apiece.
The Mids outshot the Retrievers, 13-6, and held a 3-0 advantage on corner kicks.
The Retrievers return to action on Thursday, Oct. 23, when they host America East rival Boston University at 3 p.m. at UMBC Soccer Stadium, and they will honor seniors Christine Bacinski, Catie Bukowski, Amy Morrison and Kali Schwartz, who will be playing in the final home game of their careers.
