GRR: West Point
Army West Point will play in the D1A Final April 30 in Houston after the Black Knights held off a determined charge from Lindenwood to win Friday night's D1A semifinal at the US Military Academy.
Army led by as much as 16, 19-3, but two second-half Lindenwood tries put the Lions within a score at 19-14.
The D1A playoffs are down to semifinals, with a chance for someone in the East to make their first-ever D1A final.

The Eastern side of the DIA quarterfinals mirrors the Western side in that one matchup is one we've seen a couple of times before.
West Point won a defensive battle on the road in Marietta, Ga. Wednesday night, defeating the Life Running Eagles 14-10.
West Point held off a pretty tenacious Queens University Charlotte Saturday in a game Army is using to gear up for the D1A playoffs.
Queens put a bit of a scare into Army and tested the Black Knights with their speed into the breakdown and their kicking game. But a strong early part of the second half saw Army pull away, and then hold on.
