Pirates trounced by Midshipmen 42-10

The United States Naval Academy (2-0, 1-0 AAC) continued its success over East Carolina University (1-2, 0-1 AAC) on Saturday, defeating the Pirates 42-10 in Annapolis.

“I thought they (Navy) had a great plan on both sides and special teams,” head coach Mike Houston said via Stephen Igoe following the game. “I thought their kids looked extremely prepared and had a lot of energy to start the game.”

During the last meeting between these two programs back in 2016, ECU suffered a similar fate, falling 66-31 in Greenville, North Carolina. In that contest, Navy utilized their triple option attack and rushed for 480 yards on 68 carries to generate 28 first downs.
