Navy continues its dominance of Army

December 03, 2006|From the Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — The Commander-in-Chief's Trophy is staying docked with Navy.

While Army and Navy played a mostly competitive game in this increasingly lopsided rivalry, the result was still the same and the Midshipmen are again the class of the service academies.

Jason Tomlinson and Reggie Campbell each rushed for touchdowns to lead Navy to a 26-14 win over Army on Saturday in the 107th meeting of one of the most storied rivalries in college sports.

Keenan Little returned an interception 40 yards for a touchdown late in the fourth for bowl-bound Navy (9-3). The Midshipmen equaled their longest winning streak in the series, matching a pair of five-game streaks, most recently from 1959 to '63.

Navy has outscored the Army, 202-68, the last five years and leads the series, 51-49-7.

Navy won the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy, awarded annually to the winner of the football competition between the three major service academies, for the fourth straight year.

The win also made Navy's senior class the first in team history to finish 8-0 against Army and Air Force.

Army (3-9) ended the season on a six-game losing streak.

Navy will next play in the Meineke Bowl on Dec. 30.
