Christopher Newport (7-1-2) held advantages in shots (18-10) and corner kicks (14-3). Budka made eight stops, while Mann made four saves.
The Hornets (4-1-2) have a full week off until they travel to Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) opponent Hampden-Sydney College next Wednesday for a 7 p.m. tilt.
