Newark – Army Ends Navy’s Run with 21-17 win on Saturday in Baltimore and the lady Knights roll into Delaware from a loss at Minnesota and steam rolled the Lady Hens 61-47 Sunday afternoon in the first ever meeting between both programs at The Bob Carpenter Center in Newark, Delaware.

The lady knights trailed for several minutes then clamped down on the blue hens offense like a tourniquet taking a 14-13 lead when Jess Lewis drains a jumper. On the very next Army possession Aliyah Murray connected on the easy lay-up giving the knights a 16-13 lead to start a 21-5 run ended the first quarter with an 23-13 lead.
