The half ended on the Navy kickoff.

Army’s offense was stumped with a 3-and-out and punted the ball back to the Mids with 4:42 remaining in the half.

Army was able to rush for only 17 yards on their next drive.  The Mids forced Army to punt facing a 4th-and-three on their own 42.

Navy countered Army’s scoring drive with a 4-play drive of their own.  The Midshipmen drive didn’t take the time that Army’s did.  The Mids scored on a 55-yard run by Malcolm Perry.  The Navy scoring drive was 4-75-1:53.  Navy ties the game, 7-7 with 13:34 remaining in the second quarter
