Army Claims Men's Lacrosse Star

ANNAPOLIS, Md. – The No. 7/8 Army West Point men's lacrosse team beat Navy for the first time since 2019 in a dominating 11-6 victory.
 
The Black Knights earned the win as part of the Army-Navy Star Series, presented by USAA.

Army opened the game on fire, scoring the first three goals to take a commanding 3-0 lead just five minutes into the game.
 
Reese Burek, Paul Johnson, and Andrew Kelly all netted goals in the first quarter. Navy netted one to make things 3-1 with 4:32 left in the first quarter.
 
Evan Plunkett scored the final goal of the first and the first goal of the second quarter to put the Black Kights up 5-1.
 
After a Navy goal, Burek almost immediately put Army back up by four with his second goal of the day.
 
Bailey O'Connor made it 7-2 shortly there after with 8:09 left in the half. One minute later, Jacob Morin fired an absolute rocket from deep to put Army up 8-2.
