Navy coach George Welsh said his team "didn't really handle" Army that well despite third straight win versus Cadets

First time Army scored against Navy in three years

2nd Quarter

NAVY: FB Bob Jackson 2 yard run (Muczynski kick)...Jackson, senior from Lindenwold NJ

NAVY: DE Bob Destafney 42 yard blocked punt return (Muczynski kick)...DE Jeff Hoobler blocked punt at Army 42 and Destafney picked it up, both coaches said key play of game (Welsh: "We didn't have a planned block on. We were just setting up for a return and he just made a great effort", Army coach Homer Smith: "We got off to a terrible start with three misplays early and never could recover. That blocked punt created a terrible situation.", Navy ROV Chet Moeller said the play got Army "down a little more than it got us up.")

NAVY: Muczynski 31 yard field goal

3rd Quarter

NAVY: Muczynski 28 yard field goal

4th Quarter
