Football falls to Delaware valley
The Mules played a solid first quarter against the 10th-ranked Aggies. After Delaware Valley returned the opening kickoff to Muhlenberg's 44-yard line, the defense prevented the good field position from turning into points when junior Chris Hartzell knocked down a fourth-down pass.

The Aggies broke the scoreless tie early in the second quarter, then added a fumble return for a touchdown and an 89-yard drive for a touchdown in the final 30 seconds of the half.
Down 27-0, Muhlenberg averted its first regular-season shutout since 1998 by scoring a touchdown with 1:49 to play. Sophomore Isaiah Vaughn caught consecutive passes for 21 yards to put the ball on the 2, and three plays later sophomore Terrence Dandridge scooted around the right side for the score.
Senior Patrick McDonough led the defense with 14 tackles, and Hartzell added 10. Junior Kenneth Cobb made two tackles for loss, including a sack that forced a fumble.
