Army 3-8

Sunday, December 1, 2013

Another game that Army really could have won. Winless Hawaii seemed to move the ball effortlessly and scored early and often to play an early advantage into a good win for the Warriors.

Army got out to a slow start giving up the ball and then a quick score. Down 14-0 the first play that kept reeling Army in the game was a Chris Carnegie interception into the end zone.

We finally got to see why the coaches played quarterback roulette all season.... we've seen both QB's play hot and play cold. Saturday night was AJ Schurr's turn to play hot and he rallied the team to tie the score at 28 with 6:17 remaining in the 3rd quarter.

Army battled back again and again, tying the score in the 3rd and pulling within 7 twice in the 4th, but in the end time ran out on Army's escape act, the clock struck zero and Army lost to a previously winless Hawaii team.

Watching the game I couldn't help but dwell on the fact that Hawaii hadn't won a game yet. They handled Army very well blowing up plays for the entire first half. Hawaii outrushed Army 285-254 and the game's leading rusher was Joey Iosefa carrying for 154 yards and a TD on 28 touches.

I hate to bring it up because Army is starving for stability.... but you have to question the coaching staff at this point of the season. There is one game to save it all... must win game in 2 weeks for Coach E.

Here's your story and stats.
