Monmouth's Murphy leads College Boot fan vote
Monmouth junior forward Erica Murphy has been selected as the winner of the Women's College Boot Supporter's Choice award. Murphy received the most votes from soccer fans in the annual Soccer News Net poll recognizing the national player of the year.
Fan voting accounts for 40% of the total toward selection of the Soccer News Net Women’s College Boot. Winners of the Soccer News Net College Boot will be announced next week.
Murphy (Millstone Township, NJ/Pennington Prep/PDA Celtic)was named to the All-MAAC First Team after leading the league in points (33) and goals (15), ranking her ninth in the NCAA in goals scored and 17th in total points (as of Nov. 5). Murphy, who has 23 goals in the last two seasons, was a Second Team All-MAAC pick in 2014. The junior, who has four game-winning scores this year, has the highest single-season goal total for the Hawks since Kristen McDermott notched 22 goals in 1998 and the most points in recent history since Andrea Lopez registered 36 points in 2006.
