women's soccer celebration Shelby Doll Junior Shelby Doll scored her first career goal 5:34 into overtime to give the Muhlenberg women’s soccer team a 1-0 win against Gwynedd-Mercy.

The goal ended a weekend of frustration around the net for the Mules (2-2-1). On Saturday, they lost 1-0 to Delaware Valley despite an 8-4 advantage in shots. The Aggies scored the lone goal on a breakaway early in the second half.

On Sunday, the play was even more in Muhlenberg’s favor. The Mules had a 15-3 edge in shots through regulation but could not find the back of the net. Their scoreless streak was at 290 minutes before Doll (right and above middle, celebrating with her teammates) scored off the dribble, sending a left-footed shot past the goalie.

Freshman Francesca Cobuzzi made a pair of saves to earn the shutout and win in her second career start.

Doll, senior back Maggie Neary and freshman midfielder Taylor Pini were named to the Griffin Classic all-tournament team.
