The kick was soon followed by a try to end the half. In the second half, Army scored five tries while keeping Quinnipiac scoreless for another 40 minutes.
“First off, huge shout out to the Army fans who filled the stands and the parachute team with their awesome half time performance. Truly a game changer when you have a crowd like that for a Friday night game under the lights against a physical Quinnipiac team. It was a back and forth match the first half as we didn't come out of the gate playing our game and Quinnipiac came ready to fight. We were finally able to get points on the board with a penalty conversion kick from Codi Butt which ultimately swung momentum our way and drove us to end the half with a try. The second half was a different story as our grit and determination started to kick in.” - Head coach Bill Leclerc. Read more.
