Navy Scores with 3.4 Sec. Left to Upset No. 12 Colgate

"We've been up in a lot of games over my two years and let it slip away," added Jones. "I think a lot of us in our minds were saying, 'no, not again!' I had complete faith in our team."

It was particularly rewarding for Jones who has struggled in recent weeks.

"I've been in a slump the last few games and the fact that my teammates trusted me means the world," added Jones. "I love my teammates. It just really made me happy to be able to come through for them."

"I know Sam has been frustrated the last couple of weeks, but I knew it was just a matter of time before he broke out of it," added Sowell. "I think it was more about being unlucky than him not doing the right things. There are a few guys we'd like to have the ball in their sticks at the end of the game and without a doubt Sam is one of them."

Jones led all scorers in the game with five points on three goals and two assists. Meanwhile, senior attackman Taylor Reynolds (Babylon, N.Y.), senior faceoff specialist Logan West (Berlin, Md.) and Durkin contributed two goals apiece with West's goals being the first two of his career. Sophomore attackman Tucker Hull (Charlotte, N.C.), the nation's second-leading scorer who was averaging 5.71 points per game going into the contest, was held to just one goal.

Navy senior keeper RJ Wickham (Penn Yan, N.Y.) put together a solid day in goal, turning back 12 Colgate shots on goal, including eight in the second half. The Raiders took 28 of their 42 shots in the second, outscoring the Mids 8-5 over the second 30 minutes of play.

Baum, who scored just one settled goal on the Midshipmen, paced the Raiders with his hat trick, while Walsh delivered three points on two goals and one assist. Madison, meanwhile, made just three saves for the Raiders.

The Midshipmen will be back in action next Friday when they play host to 11th-ranked Lehigh at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium beginning at 7:00 pm. The Patriot League contest will be televised live by CBS Sports Network with Dave Ryan (play by play) and Steve Panarelli (analyst) calling the action. Additionally, the game will be broadcast on 1430 WNAV with Pete Medhurst on the call.
