TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Streak is over

Army beat No. 25 Navy 21-17 Saturday to end a 14-game losing streak in the long series between the United States military institutions.

The Black Knights' skid was the longest by either academy in a series that began in 1890. 

Navy (9-4) still leads the series all-time 60-50-7 in the series.

The game once again this year was dotted with Tucson-area connections.

The Midshipmen were missing defensive captain Daniel Gonzales (Cienega ’12) whose season and career ended in October due to a foot injury.

Gonzales, voted a co-captain in Fall Camp, appeared in four games this season. He had previously played in two Army-Navy games.

Army (7-5) however got a pair of contributions from Tucson high school football products.

Down 17-14 in the 4th quarter, senior wide receiver Edgar Allen Poe (Cienega '12) caught a 29-yard pass from Black Knight’s quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw to start a game-winning 12-play 80-yard drive.

Army senior linebacker and co-captain Jeremy Timpf (Sabino '12) recorded nine tackles, one for loss and had a huge sack in the fourth quarter to help snuff out the Midshipmen’s final drive.

Poe’s younger brother Christian (Cienega '14) also appeared in the game on special teams. The Poe brothers entered the game as the top two pass catchers on the Black Knight’s roster.

Edgar with his one catch Saturday has 15 on the season for 321 yards and three touchdowns. Christian, a sophomore, has 10 catches this season for 133 yards.

Timpf is the Army’s leading tackler with 97 on the season. He also has two interceptions.

2015 Sabino grad Marcus Edwards is also on the Navy roster. The nose tackle spent the 2015 season at the academy’s prep school and did not play in games in this his official freshman season.
                
The Black Knights now head to their first bowl game since 2010 when they face North Texas in the Heart of Dallas Bowl.
    
Navy will battle Louisiana Tech in the Armed Forces Bowl on Dec. 23. It will be Navy's 13th bowl appearance in the last 14 years.
