The teams took the field to a nice size crowd with a section marked for Army and one for Navy.  While a physical game with lots of turnovers was being played, the crowd was loud, chants were being sung and fun banter was happening between the Army and Navy. A fun evening filled with traditions honoring our military was had by all. On the field competition was closely matched, with a draw as the final result after two overtime periods.
