HAND-TO-HAND COMBAT

December 09, 1957

Navy's defense was prepared for just about anything Army might throw at it last Saturday—except a right to the jaw. Net result was that the Middies yielded a tooth—Tackle Reifsnyder's—but no touchdowns to Army's offense and won Cotton Bowl bid with a 14-0 victory

Navy's one-man offense, Ned Oldham (in light uniform) plunges for the first of his two touchdowns after miraculously exploding from a horde of Army tacklers who seemingly had stopped him. Army's Charles Lytle (60) and Fred Wilmoth (76) pursue in vain.
