Men's Lacrosse Claims Star in Iconic 100th Meeting
In the historical 100th meeting between the Army West Point and Navy Men's Lacrosse Teams, the Black Knights left Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium with a thrilling 9-8 overtime victory to secure a star in the Army-Navy Star Series presented by USAA.
The Black Knights only won six faceoffs in the game, but the most crucial one came in overtime. Evan Condon battled the ball loose enabling Marcus Hudgins to pick it up for the offensive possession. With the shot clock winding down, Matt Manown set his eyes on the goal. The cow used a spin move to gain the preferred angle to goal and let it rip to send Army home victorious.
Manown was one of six goal scorers for the Black Knights. Nate Jones led the charge with a game-high three goals for a hat trick, while Brendan Nichtern finished with a team-best five points on two goals and three assists.
