The Keydets didn't have much to cheer about yesterday afternoon.
We pick up the action in the second quarter Matt Dugan slams it by V-M-I and The Generals lead 11 to 7.
W and L just keeps coming Paul Stanley finds Ed Dougherty for the blue and white score.
Just minutes later Robb Greenfield intercepts the Keydet pass and makes the long toss to Tom Fallace. Fallace walks the score by the V-M-I goal keeper and it's 14-7 W and L.

Elvis Presley. And, in anticipation of Mother's Day, Graceland plans to open Gladys Presley's room to tourists.
This ground floor bedroom was home to Vernon and Gladys Presley after Elvis bought the mansion in 1957.
The room has never been remodeled and the furnishings are all from the 1950s.
