MEN'S SOCCER (3-8): Got on track by upsetting Bucknell 1-0 on junior Adrian Moreno's rebound goal with 3 minutes left to play. Then Moreno and yearling Doug Jones scored goals as Army beat Iona 2-0. Lafayette here Saturday.
SPRINT FOOTBALL (1-2): Lost to Navy in the Pride Bowl in Newark, NJ 33-3. Sounds bad, but big plays and mistakes cost us the game. Army had twice as many total yards as Navy and nearly twice as many first downs.
BASEBALL: George Steinbrenner has asked the Supe to throw out the first pitch in tonight's Yankees-Angels game in Yankee Stadium. LTG Lennox accepted, so be sure and watch on TV!
RUGBY CLUB: Playing at UMass, Army won 75-0 despite a number of players out with illness and injuries. Our "B" Side handled UMass 65-0. Northeastern and Boston College here the next two weeks.
WOMEN'S RUGBY: Pounded Fordham 45-0 while the "B" Side on a tough game 3-0.
FOOTBALL (0-4): Connecticut 47, Army 13. After the first quarter, when we trailed 7-6, Army's offense self-destructed. I've seldom seen us play worse. The defense played a creditable game, blocking two UConn field goals, but Army quarterbacks threw 4 interceptions. Two were run back for TD's and a third run back to our 4 yard line – and another TD on the next play. Yearling QB, David Pevoto, got into the game with 6 minutes left and played well, with 6 completions in 12 attempts, but 1 costly interception. Our top running back, Carlton Jones, pulled an abdominal muscle and is very questionable for Saturday. Our rushing game was poor: 71 yards. Central Michigan is here tomorrow for homecoming, they are a 2 point favorite.
