Mariah Alston Three Muhlenberg teams played at Franklin & Marshall’s Tylus Field beginning at noon and ending around 8:30, and none came away with a win.

Women’s soccer played a scoreless draw against the Diplomats. It was the fifth straight Centennial Conference shutout for the Mules (6-6-2, 4-2-1), who have allowed only two goals in seven league games.

The best chance for Muhlenberg to score was a drive from sophomore Leah Messler toward the upper corner in the net early in the second half. The F&M goalie thwarted the attempt with a nice diving save.

With the tie, the Mules are in fourth place in the CC, behind Gettysburg and Johns Hopkins (both 5-1) and Swarthmore (5-2). Muhlenberg plays Swarthmore (Wednesday) and Gettysburg (Saturday) this week, both at home.
