Army wins thriller over Navy, 14-13: Claims CIC Trophy


Army captured a thrilling 14-13 victory over Navy in the 118th installment of the Army Navy game, presented by USAA, on Saturday evening to secure the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy for the first time since 1996 at Lincoln Financial Field.

The game came down to a nail-biting 48-yard field goal try with three seconds left to play, with Navy's kick sailing wide left.

The Black Knights defeated Navy for the second consecutive season and did so with a late fourth-quarter score by Ahmad Bradshaw. The senior led the charge with a team-best 94 rushing yards and what turned out to be the game-winning touchdown. Darnell Woolfolk followed with 57 yards on the ground on 12 carries with a score as well.

On the defensive side, James Nachtigal tallied a team-high 11 tackles, while Alex Aukerman finished with 10. James Gibson and Cole Christiansen combined for 18 with nine apiece.

The historic rivalry between the two service academies featured 95 rushes and just three passes with both quarterbacks combining for 51 carries and 344 yards.
