Steelman Scores 3 TDs; Army Beats Northwestern 21-14

WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) — Trent Steelman scored three touchdowns for the second straight week, including the game-winner on a 1-yard plunge with 2:49 remaining, and Army beat Northwestern 21-14 on Saturday.

Steelman also scored on runs of 1 and 17 yards, and the swarming Army defense turned up the pressure in the second half.

Malcolm Brown had a 23-yard gain on a pitch right for Army (1-2), Raymond Maples added a 17-yard run off a great fake in the middle of the line, and Scott Williams had a 17-yard run around the left side to key the game-winning drive. Steelman converted a third-and-6 play from the 9 and scored two plays later.

Northwestern’s Jeremy Ebert had a 14-yard touchdown catch from quarterback Kain Colter, who started his third straight game in place of injured Dan Persa.

Northwestern (2-1) entered the game 14-1 in its previous 15 regular-season games against nonconference opponents.
