Army-Navy Game: Field Goal Puts Navy Up Early, 3-0

We're underway in Philadelphia for the 2010 Army-Navy game, and right away records are being broken, with Black Knight Marcus Thomas breaking off his longest kick return of the 2010 season (38 yards).

Hey, check it out! A run! Ricky Dobbs opens play with a four-yard gain through the right side of the line, and on the second play from scrimmage, something else unusual happens: Dobbs loses the ball. It's recovered by the Knights, but on second down, the also-reliable Jared Hassin fumbles it right back to the Mids.

Remember what we said in the preview about Dobbs being a deceptive passing threat? That prowess is on display on first down, as he throws not in mid-stride, but in mid-run, hitting Aaron Santiago for a 31-yard gain. The drive stalls out on third down, however, and Navy must settle for a field goal. Joe Buckley's 36-yard try is good.

Time on the clock: 12:02 in the first quarter. Navy leads Army, 3-0.
