2-1 at Franklin & Marshall.

The Mules (9-3-1, 5-1), who failed to cash in on several good scoring opportunities in the first half, finally dented the scoreboard in the 10th minute after halftime. The play began with a corner kick and featured several crosses back and forth, including one by Maria Tranguch that hit the post. The ball eventually came out to the corner of the box and senior Monica Jones, whose cross was headed in by Schmidt for her second goal of the season.

Muhlenberg extended its lead to two goals on a fast-break chance in the 74 minute. Freshman Kristen Cioeta crossed the ball from the wing to Armstrong. Diplomat goalie Melissa Ruff came out and got a hand on Armstrong’s shot, but the Mule junior tapped the ball in for her 27th career goal.

F&M (5-5-3, 2-3-1) scored less than a minute later, ending Muhlenberg’s unscored-upon streak at 504 minutes, but did not have a good chance to tie the game.
