Third quarter recap: Navy 24, WKU 14

Not much to report in the third quarter, as Western failed to get on the scoreboard and Navy continued to take advantage of its prolific running attack.
-The Midshipmen will have the ball on Western’s 22-yard line when the fourth quarter begins.  Navy has already advanced 65 yards on the drive, most of that on a 47-yard completion from quarterback Ricky Dobbs to receiver Bobby Doyle.
-Navy opened up a 24-14 lead with 8:19 left in the third quarter when quarterback Ricky Dobbs scored on a two-yard rush up the middle.  The drive went 80 yards, highlighted by a 45-yard rush by running back Marcus Curry.
-The Hilltoppers forced Navy into a 3rd-and-goal situation on that drive, but a late-hit personal foul against Western nose tackle Nick Hartnett set the Midshipmen up at the 2-yard line.
-Western put together a strong opening drive to begin the second half, but sophomore kicker Casey Tinius missed a 29-yard field goal wide left after the Toppers advanced 57 yards on just six plays.
