St. Anselm (D-II – NH) head coach Patrick Murphy and his staff had a rough year in 2013, going 1-11. So far, the 2014 has been a far different story, as the Hawks have flipped to script to the tune of a fast 3-0 start.
The 2014 team has already matched the 2012 (2) and 2013 (1) team combined win total and done so in rather dramatic fashion. Their three wins this season (against Bowie State, Southern Connecticut State, and Bentley) have come by a combined 8 points.
Their latest win against Bentley (D-II – MA) on Saturday was historic because not only did they score 14 points in the fourth quarter for the come from behind win, but it also marked the first time in school history that the Hawks had notched a win over the visiting Falcons.
Judging by the enthusiastic reaction from the fans as the clock hit 0:00, that was rather well known on campus.
Great win for coach Murphy and his program. Having the fans storm the field Saturday had to be quite the feeling and it looks like it could shape up to be a special season for him and the Hawks.
