The Navy team broke the Army’s three-year winning streak Saturday night during the 120th Army – Navy football matchup.

The Midshipmen of the United States Naval Academy (USNA) Annapolis beat the United States Military Academy (USMA) West Point Black Knights 31-7 after evening out a deficit in the first quarter to tie up the game. The Midshipmen took the lead in the second quarter and continued to build on their score throughout the rivalry game.

The Army team continued to play tough throughout the matchup between the two military service academies, at one point blocking a field goal attempt by the Navy team.

Still, the Navy team continued to build on their commanding lead throughout the second half of the game, including a final touchdown by Quarterback Malcolm Perry in the final two minutes of the game. Moments later the Navy sealed the game with an interception of an Army pass with a minute remaining to the game.

The record for the rivalry match up stands at 61 wins for the Navy to the Army’s 52 wins and seven ties.
