The Muhlenberg field hockey team needs help to get into the Centennial Conference playoffs, but it didn’t get any on Sunday.

Franklin & Marshall edged Gettysburg, 2-1, in a makeup game to stay in a tie for fourth place in the CC with the Mules. Should the teams remain tied (with each other only) after Tuesday’s regular-season finale, the Diplomats would earn the fourth and final seed on the basis of their head-to-head win.

There are many other possibilities, however, since the second through fifth teams are separated by a single game. Muhlenberg would win a head-to-head tiebreaker with Johns Hopkins, and is the only team to have defeated first-place Washington so far.

Tuesday’s schedule is as follows: Bryn Mawr at Muhlenberg, Dickinson at Franklin & Marshall, Johns Hopkins at Gettysburg, Washington at McDaniel, Haverford at Swarthmore. The standings:

*Washington 7-1 10-6
Johns Hopkins 6-2 11-7
McDaniel 6-2 15-3
F & M 5-3 9-7
Dickinson 4-4 8-9
Swarthmore 3-5 7-10
Gettysburg 3-5 4-13
Haverford 1-7 5-13
Bryn Mawr 0-8 0-17
Ursinus 12-5
* clinched playoff berth

Koth, Jones Share Conference Honors

Seniors Mike Koth and Justin Jones of the Muhlenberg football team have been named co-players of the week by the Centennial Conference following Saturday’s 43-0 win at Mike Koth Ursinus.

Koth, a defensive end, shared defensive honors with Jesse Hudson of McDaniel after leading the Mules to their second straight shutout. He made six tackles, and four of them were behind the line of scrimmage, including 1.5 sacks. Koth also forced a fumble, recovered a fumble and blocked a field goal. Muhlenberg held the Bears to 168 total yards and 3 rushing yards, forced five turnovers and recorded six sacks.

Jones was honored as offensive co-player of the week for making the most of his 14 pass Justin Jones attempts. He completed only eight, but they went for 232 yards, setting a school record for yards per completion (29.0). Among Jones’ completions were passes of 76 yards, 52 yards (for a touchdown) and 37 yards, and he also scored a touchdown on a 7-yard run. The other offensive honoree was Johns Hopkins running back Adam Cook.

In other CC action, Hopkins defeated Dickinson, 17-10; McDaniel blanked William Paterson, 34-0; and Gettysburg toppled St. Lawrence, 49-21. The standings:

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