Navy 10 - Army 10, 2nd Quarter

Both teams got on the scoreboard in the second quarter.  Army continued their dominance on the ground already gaining 207 yards in the half.

Noah Copeland got Navy on the scoreboard first when he ran for 12 yards to cap off a 9-play, 66-yard drive that took 4:56.  Copeland carried five times on the drive gaining 38 yards.

Trent Steelman was able to move Army right down the field on the next drive to tie the game.  Steelman started the drive with a 20 yard gain and finished the drive with an 11 yard TD run.  Army drove 75 yards on nine plays and only took 2:59 to tie the game.

Not to be outdone, the Mids scored on a 31 yard field goal by Nick Sloan with just 25 seconds remaining in the half.  Navy milked the clock for 5:49 and ran 15 plays on the scoring drive.

Army's offense could not be stopped and the Black Knights drove into field goal range on three big plays from Steelman - two runs for 16 yards and a 19 yard pass to Chevaughn Lawrence.  Eric Osteen kicked a 41 yard field goal that  hit the left upright but went through and tied the game at the half 10-10.

It looks like we have a game on our hands.
