Hillsdale Wraps up season with 3rd straight win, 28-14 over Wayne State

Hillsdale College Release
November 5, 2005

Nov. 5, 2005 - The Hillsdale College football program heads into this offseason feeling better than it has in several years. A main reason why is Saturday's season-closing win over Wayne State.

On a day where the program honored its biggest senior class in several seasons, the Chargers played a complete game in a 28-14 triumph over the Wayne State University Warriors at Frank "Muddy" Waters Stadium. Hillsdale finishes the 2005 campaign with a 5-6 overall record and 4-6 in the GLIAC. The five wins are the most for Hillsdale since 1999, and breaks the string of three straight 4-7 seasons.

The win gives Hillsdale its first three-game winning streak since the middle of that same 1999 season. The last time the Chargers finished a season with three wins in a row was 1995.

As much as the Chargers' performance was reminiscent of the team's glory years, the present is in pretty good shape too.

Junior tailback Phil Martin cracked the 1,000 yard barrier for the season, and he couldn't have done it in more dramatic fashion. Martin took a fourth-and-one play 20 yards for a Hillsdale touchdown with 1:18 left in the third quarter, giving the Chargers a 28-7 advantage. Martin bounced outside of the pile and outran the Warrior defenders to give the team the score, and give himself the landmark statistic.
