In Pictures: Army-Navy Cup X

All photos credit Stephen Speer

In what was a fairly contentious, yet good-natured rivalry match, Navy topped Army 3-0 at Subaru Park to claim both a trophy and bragging rights for the year to come. A hat trick by the Midshipmen’s Jacob Williams was the difference on the box score, but a concerted team effort across the field put Army on the back foot for much of the match. At 2-0 after 45 minutes, Navy added a third goal before full-time to round out the scoring and celebrated in style with their friends and family long after the match concluded.

Stephen Speer was in attendance to photograph the match. This is what he saw:
