  • Women’s Soccer outlasts Navy in OT, moves onto PL Semis

    The Army West Point Women’s Soccer team celebrates after putting together its most complete performance of the season in the Patriot League Quarterfinals with a 1-0 double-overtime victory over service-academy rival Navy Oct. 30 in Annapolis, Md. Sophomore forward Erynn Johns netted the game winner in the 102nd minute after senior defenseman Sydney Witham sent a free kick into the middle of the box. The Austin, Texas, native corralled the bouncing ball and fired a shot that escaped the outstretched arm of Sydney Fortson. Sophomore goalkeeper Sydney Cassalia, who recently earned All-Patriot League Second Team honors, posted her 10th shutout of the season with a three-save effort. However, the Black Knights were eliminated Nov. 2 by top-seeded Boston University, 3-0, in Boston. Read More

  • Army West Point retains Commander In Chief’s Trophy

    For the second-straight season the Army West Point Football team will have some prime hardware to show off after it retained the Commander In Chief’s Trophy following a 17-14 victory over Air Force Nov. 3 at Michie Stadium.
    The Falcons had already defeated Navy earlier in the year and a win from them on Saturday would have sent the 170-plus pound trophy back to Colorado. Fortunately, the Black Knights ended any thought of that happening when they held off a late rally by their service-academy foe.
    With the win, Army will at least retain the trophy for another year as the worst all three academies can now do is win one game each. In the case of a three-way tie, the previous year’s winner retains the trophy. Read More

    With the point, Army is headed to the postseason for the first time since 2014.
    Both teams managed five shots in each of the first two halves, while the visiting Eagles maintained a 7-3 advantage in shots on goal. That all changed in overtime, however, as Army blasted 11 shots in the final 10 minutes of the contest, including six on target, to close out the game. Read More
