After a scoreless first quarter that saw East Carolina kicker Michael Barbour miss two field goals, Navy opened the second quarter continuing their drive. Lead by a 21-yard Matt Aiken rush, the Midshipmen marched down the field going 80 yards in 9 plays, capped off by Gee Gee Greene 13-yard touchdown run. Navy took the lead 7-0 in a game that could have been 7-6.
On the very next drive, ECU went right down the football field to answer. Lead by quarterback Dominique Davis passing the football, the Pirates went down the field in 8 plays for 78 yards. The drive was capped off by a 3-yard touchdown pass to Lance Lewis to tie the game 7-7.
Navy's next drive stalled out after quarterback Kriss Proctor was knocked out of the game with a hand injury. Sophomore quarterback Trey Miller came in to replace Proctor, but he fumbled the football and ECU recovered. ECU took the ball after the turnover and went 63 yards on 8 plays, once again led by Davis who tossed another touchdown pass, this time hitting Michael Bowman on a 10-yard touchdown pass to go up 14-7.
After a quick three and out by Navy, ECU got the football back with a little under two minutes left. The Pirates drove down the field and with 4 seconds left kicked the field goal to go up 17-7.
ECU quarterback Dominique Davis is a perfect 26 for 26 passing the ball with 251 passing yards and two touchdowns.
