Sprint Football Runs Past Penn, 38-13
After almost two years, Army West Point Sprint Football returned to Shea Stadium for a Collegiate Sprint Football League (CSFL) contest. The Black Knights did not show any signs of rust in this game, defeating the Penn Quakers by a score of 38-13.
The Cadets came out firing right from the opening kickoff, scoring on the first play from scrimmage after quarterback JC Watson found Kraig Hamilton for a 69-yard touchdown pass just 20 seconds into the game. The defense followed the offense's lead, forcing Penn to a five-play drive, highlighted by a Brett Boswell sack to force a Quaker punt. Watson and the offense got back to work at their own 26 yard line. Army would march down the field on the backs of Watson and starting running back Ryan Connors. The duo would combine for 56 rush yards and connect for an 18 yard touchdown pass to put the Cadets up two scores.
The next point would come from kicker Ben Abercrombie, who split the uprights on a 46-yard field goal attempt early in the second quarter. The junior would also contribute five extra points while also serving as the kickoff specialist for the team. Read more.
