The Army-Navy rematch this weekend has been canceled.
With COVID-19 cases on the apparent increase around the nation, the West Point and US Naval Academy administrations decided to cancel the games for both men and women.
As you may have seen in GRR’s preview of this past Saturday’s Army-Navy men’s rugby game, the matchup has a history of being close—just not this time.
West Point swept today's action with rivals the US Naval Academy, with the men and women's teams both winning.
In what is usually a relatively close contest, the men's game ended up being more lopsided than usual. In a hotly-contested clash, Army put Navy under pressure early, and from a scrum hammered it up once and then a flat pass to newcomer Dominic Tianga put the flanker over.
Army at Navy men and women will both be streamed live, but at different locations on the web.

The last time Army and Navy women were on the field in major competition was a year ago, when both were in the finals of their respective championships; both came away runners-up, and since then the COVID-19 shutdowns have made it difficult for them to rebound.
