BALTIMORE (AP) — Navy extended its winning streak over Army to 13 games, using a strong defensive performance and the versatility of quarterback Keenan Reynolds to carve out a 17-10 victory Saturday.

After Army turned a blocked punt into a touchdown in the first quarter, the Midshipmen used the passing of Reynolds to pull even at halftime. Navy (7-5) then took a 10-7 lead before Reynolds scored from the 1 with 12:07 left to put the Mids in control.

Ken Niumatalolo became the winningest coach in Navy history, breaking a tie with George Welsh. Niumatalolo (56-35) also became the first Navy coach to win his first seven games against Army (4-8).

Reynolds ran 26 times for 100 yards and completed six of eight passes for 77 yards and a touchdown.

As the clock ticked down the final seconds, the thousands of Midshipmen in attendance jumped, yelled and cheered from their perch in the end zone.

The 13-game run by Navy is the longest in the history of a series that began in 1890. Before the Midshipmen went on their unprecedented run, neither team in this storied rivalry had won more than five in a row.
