The Yellow Jackets took a 31-14 lead in the third quarter before St. Anselm mounted a comeback, beginning with a 12-play, 79-yard drive. Murphy scored on a 3-yard run, and later tossed a 2-yard score to Justin Bernard. The Hawks scored again with 44 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter on Murphy’s third touchdown pass of the night, an 8-yarder to Bernard. The QB completed 47 of 66 passes with four interceptions. Eric Feehan and Ahkeen Williams each made 11 receptions in the Northeast-10 battle.

AIC quarterback Kevin Arduino tossed three touchdown passes in the first half as American International took a 28-0 lead. Arduino finished the night at 13-for-25 and 176 yards. The Yellow Jackets improved to 7-1 overall and 7-0 in division play. The Hawks dropped to 1-8 (1-6 NE-10) in their final home game of the year.
