Navy’s run-game stuffed, pass game doesn’t step up

Air Force shut down Navy's run game and the passing game just didn't have the juice to lead the Mids to a win.

Air Force shut down Navy’s run game and the passing game just didn’t have the juice to lead the Mids to a win.

Somehow, some way, the Air Force Falcons turned Navy from a running team into a passing team, and when that happened it was no surprise the Mids couldn’t get much going from their offense as they suffered a 28-14 loss in Colorado.

Navy and their triple-option running game were held to only 57 yards on the ground. Will Worth threw for 260 yards on the day, but without the ground game going it took until the fourth quarter before they scored their first points.

Air Force, meanwhile, took a 20-0 lead in the fourth quarter after kicker Luke Strebel kicked in his second field goal of the day. The Falcons scored two touchdowns in the third quarter, first a one-yard touchdown run by Tim McVey at the end of a 10-play, 78-yard drive and then after a 75-yard touchdown pass from Nate Romine to Jale Robinette.

After Strebel’s field to go put Air Force ahead 20-0, Navy finally bounted a scoring drive, going 75 yards in eight plays. Worth completed four passes before handing the ball off to Shawn White for a six-yard touchdown run.

Worth also ran in a touchdown on Navy’s last drive, but it was not enough and in between those touchdowns, Air Force scored again off a 62-yard touchdown pass to McVey.

Navy will attempt to rebound next week as they host the sixth-ranked Houston Cougars at 3 pm.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
