WEST POINT – The Army West Point football team got back in the win column Saturday, defeating Lafayette, 62-7.
The Black Knights scored early and often, beginning with a 60-yard run by Ahmad Bradshaw less than five minutes into the contest. Bradshaw faked a pitch and cut through the Lafayette defense for the long score, bringing the sellout crowd at Michie Stadium to its feet.
Jordan Asberry and Chris Carter added touchdown runs of 20 and 19 yards, respectively, to push Army’s lead to 21-0 early in the second quarter.
Bradshaw found Jeff Ejekam for a 7-yard score, for the first touchdown of Ejekam’s career, midway through the second quarter. The score capped a fast 5-play, 72-yard drive in just over two minutes, and gave the Black Knights a 28-0 lead.
Army would not look back the rest of the way, as it took a 35-7 lead into halftime and outscored the Leopards, 27-0 in the second half.
Army remains at Michie Stadium this Saturday when it hosts North Texas for a noon kickoff.
