VMI Vs. Navy Score Update: Midshipmen Lead Keydets, 13-3, At Halftime

A 7-yard rushing touchdown by junior quarterback Trey Miller and two field goals by freshman kicker Nick Sloan have helped the Navy Midshipmen take a 13-3 halftime lead over Virginia Military Institute in a showdown at Navy Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md.

Navy's triple-option offense has totaled 257 yards, including 54 from Miller who has 13 carries, on the Football Championship Subdivision foe.

Navy's three scores answered an early field goal by VMI, which recovered a Navy fumble on the game's opening possession. The Keydets took over at their own 35-yard line and 10 plays later took an early 3-0 lead thanks to a 42-yard field goal by Jeff Sexton.

From there, it was all Navy, which has gotten strong performances from senior taliback Gee Gee Greene and sophomore full back Noah Copeland. Greene is the Midshipmen's leading rusher with 64 yards on six caries, while Copeland has tallied 79 yards on 10 carries. Miller has completed 3 of 6 passes for 39 yards.

Sloan has nailed field goals from 19 and 35 yards.
