MEN’S SOCCER DEFEATS E-TOWN

Freshman Chris Davis stopped nine shots to record his second straight shutout and junior Ben Long scored the lone goal as Muhlenberg (9-5) edged Elizabethtown (10-5-1) in its final non-conference game of the season.

The Blue Jays entered the game ranked eighth in the Mid-Atlantic Region and with an eight-game unbeaten streak. The Mules were tied for 10th in the regional rankings.

It was the first win for Muhlenberg against its traditional regional rival since the 1995 NCAA Tournament. The two teams did not play the last two seasons because of rainouts.

The Mules need one win in their final three regular-season games to reach double digits in victories for the 15th time in 16 years.

Senior back Reina Tyson helped the Muhlenberg defense record its second straight shutout.
The non-conference win was the second in a row for Muhlenberg (7-8), which finishes up with Centennial Conference games at Johns Hopkins and Bryn Mawr. The Mules are tied for sixth place in the CC and will need to win both games and get some help in order to make the CC playoffs.

“It feels really good winning two in a row, and now we’re going to concentrate on winning the next two,” said Reina Tyson, who was honored along with fellow seniors Melissa Eicken, Sarah Stitzer and Amy Yalch prior to the game. “We want to finish the season winning four in a row and we can’t worry about what other teams are doing.”

Eicken recorded her team-leading fifth assist on the goal. She is now tied for second on the Mules’ all-time list with 14 career assists. Junior Josephine Fasolino recorded a pair of saves for her fifth shutout of the season. Click here for box score.

“We want to play our hearts out the rest of the season and leave everything on the field,” added Tyson.
