JOHNS HOPKINS WINS CC WOMEN’S SOCCER TITLE

Meg McIntosh scored two second-half goals as the Johns Hopkins women’s soccer team captured its first Centennial Conference championship since 1997 with a 3-0 win against Gettysburg on Muhlenberg’s Varsity Field.

In other CC championship games, Gettysburg defeated Franklin & Marshall in a 3-2 thriller in volleyball; McDaniel edged Johns Hopkins, 1-0, in field hockey; and Johns Hopkins made it a soccer sweep by winning in penalty kicks against Franklin & Marshall after a 1-1 tie.

Jones Repeats as Co-Player of the Week

For the second straight week, senior Justin Jones of the Muhlenberg football Justin Jones team was named co-offensive player of the week by the Centennial Conference.

Jones had a phenomenal game against Union, completing 19 of 25 passes for 273 yards and four touchdowns. He leads the CC in passing yards (1763), completion percentage (.585), passing touchdowns (15), total offense yards (1822) and pass efficiency rating (144.1).

Also honored was Ursinus running back Gary Sheffield, who amassed 217 rushing and 308 all-purpose yards and scored four times in the Bears’ 56-20 romp over FDU-Florham. The defensive player of the week was Dickinson linebacker Chuck Nesley; he made 10 tackles and intercepted a pass with 28 seconds left to preserve the Red Devils’ 17-14 win over Gettysburg.

In other CC games, Johns Hopkins kept its title hopes alive with a 40-21 win against Franklin & Marshall, and McDaniel outscored Bethany, 28-17. Hopkins hosts McDaniel this Saturday, and if the Blue Jays win they will force a three-way tie for the Conference championship. The CC’s automatic bid for the NCAA Tournament would then be determined by a strength of schedule index.

McDaniel 5-0 8-1
MUHLENBERG 5-1 8-1
Johns Hopkins 4-1 7-2
Dickinson 2-3 4-5
Gettysburg 1-4 4-5
Franklin & Marshall 1-4 3-6
Ursinus 0-5 2-7
