To Philly by way of Bucks County


A West Point Military Academy marathon runner enters Pennsylvania at New Hope on the U.S. 202 Bridge Friday, carrying the game ball for the Army-Navy Game at Lincoln Financial Field. The New Hope Eagle and Northampton fire companies welcomed the runner. Above right, the relay team takes a break with Buckingham Township police at the Midway Volunteer Fire Co. firehouse in Lahaska. Bob Welch, a West Point alumnus, is at left rear with his wife, Amy. The three lower photos on the right show the ball hand-off looking down from Stump Road. The score was Navy 10 - Army 17 for the 119th game between the two military academies.
