Box Score

Sean Conrad broke free down the far sideline and sprinted 40 yards to the end zone, and the Princeton sprint football team had scored against Navy, something it hadn't done since 2004.

Not content with just one touchdown, Princeton's Nicholas Barnett stripped the ball from a Navy running back and brought it back 34 yards in the fourth quarter.

Unfortunately for the Tigers, both times the Midshipmen put a quick dose of reality back to the game, answering both touchdowns by returning the kickoff for a touchdown. Navy also returned a punt and an interception for TDs and added enough offense to the return game to knock off the Tigers 62-13 on Powers Field at Princeton Stadium.

Navy led 10-0 in the first quarter when Conrad broke his long run, giving Princeton its first points in eight years against the Mids. The touchdowns wouldn't be the only highlights for the Tigers.

Princeton shut Navy out in the third quarter for its first scoreless quarter against the Mids since 2006.

Princeton's Chris Cadman intercepted two passes, including one in the end zone, and Richard Youngblood had a pick of his own in the end zone as well. Cadman also had 14 tackles and a great one-handed reception.

Still, Princeton was done in by the big plays.

In fact, Navy had just 264 yards of total offense, but the four returns for touchdowns alone were worth another 260 yards.

Princeton (0-2) is at Cornell Friday and then home against Post and Franklin Pierce on consecutive Friday nights.
