* Navy's season has taken on a one-step-forward, two-steps-back feel to it. After opening the season with victories over VMI and Detroit, the team dropped three in a row to Fairfield, Georgetown and Bucknell before bouncing back last Saturday with a 12-11 decision against Lafayette. Tuesday night's loss to Towson was another reminder of how uneven 2013 has been for the Midshipmen. "It just goes to show the top of the world and the bottom of the world just aren't that far apart," coach Rick Sowell said. "As good as you feel after the win on Saturday, you feel that bad because you couldn't get it done on Tuesday. That fourth quarter, we didn't score a goal, but there's certainly a different feel with the guys. We're battling, we're doing a lot of good things, and as I told them, I think we're close. I told our guys early in the season that the way our sport is, there's a lot of close games, and we're going to play our fair share, and I suspect we're going to keep playing in them. Hopefully, the tide will turn and we can win our fair share of them."
