The Air Force Falcons and the Army Black Knights are currently embroiled in a Commander-in-Chief’s trophy game on the Air Force base in Colorado.
This is a pivotal game for both teams as they’ve each been struggling through the season so far. Air Force comes into the game with a 1-7 record and has yet to win a game in the Mountain West Conference, and Army is just 3-5 with their independent schedule so far.
Any sort of big play would help either team’s cause, and that’s exactly what Air Force was able to get themselves early on in the first quarter of the contest.
Already trailing 7-0 in the game, the Falcons got the ball after an Army score had them down 7-0 and they responded quickly.
Needing to drive the ball 75 yards to tie it up, running back Anthony Lacoste took care of business in traditional Air Force fashion, by taking off for a 75 yard touchdown run to tie the game back up immediately.
Unfortunately for the Falcons, though, Army was able to get a score back right near the end of the first quarter to grab the lead back at 14-7.
But, if Air Force can continue to get performances like that from Lacoste, then Army could be in for a long day.
