Danny Murphy’s lone goal puts Pride men’s soccer over Endicott in the first round of the NCAA tournament, 1-0

A look back at the undefeated 1965 football team

First, there was the 2-0 team in 1893, and they were followed by a 2-0-2 in 1894. Fast forward to 1900 and there was the 5-0-2 team. The team in 1927 posted a … Continue reading A look back at the undefeated 1965 football team
