A weekly look at what’s going on in the Centennial Conference:

Men’s Soccer
Losses by Johns Hopkins and Gettysburg (at Swarthmore and Washington, respectively) not only gave Muhlenberg a commanding lead, but it also opened up the playoff race. McDaniel blanked Haverford, 4-0, to move into a tie for second place, with Washington just a half-game back. CC matches this Saturday are Muhlenberg at Gettysburg, Haverford at Dickinson, Swarthmore at McDaniel, Washington at Franklin & Marshall and Ursinus at Johns Hopkins.
Johns Hopkins 4-2 11-2-1
Gettysburg 4-2 9-4
McDaniel 4-2 11-5
Washington 3-2-1 7-4-2
Swarthmore 3-3 5-8-2
Dickinson 2-4 7-9-1
Haverford 1-3-2 4-7-3
Ursinus 0-4-2 4-9-2
F & M 0-5-1 2-8-2

Women’s Soccer
Dickinson, the next opponent for Muhlenberg, strengthened its playoff cause with a bizarre 4-3 win against Haverford. The Red Devils took a 4-0 lead early in the second half, only to have the Fords score three goals in 16 minutes to make it a one-goal game ... Gettysburg hosts Franklin & Marshall and Haverford this week. McDaniel has a big week, hosting Johns Hopkins on Wednesday and traveling to Ursinus on Saturday.
MUHLENBERG 6-1 10-3-1
Gettysburg 6-1 10-4
Ursinus 4-2-1 9-3-3
Dickinson 4-2 8-4-1
Johns Hopkins 4-3 10-5-1
F & M 3-3-1 6-5-3
McDaniel 3-3 11-5
Swarthmore 3-4 7-7
Haverford 2-4 5-10
Washington 0-6 4-8-1
Bryn Mawr 0-6 3-8-1

Field Hockey
Washington handed Gettysburg its first CC loss, 2-1 ... Johns Hopkins extended its winning streak to four with 2-1 victories against Dickinson (on penalty strokes) and Haverford ... In a non-CC game, Ursinus (the next opponent for Muhlenberg) suffered an 8-0 loss to No. 6 Messiah ... Every game is key for the Mules if they hope to win a playoff spot. Other key contests this week have Gettysburg traveling to McDaniel and Ursinus and Johns Hopkins hosting Washington.
Ursinus 6-0 10-4
McDaniel 6-1 12-3
Gettysburg 5-1 8-4
Johns Hopkins 5-1 7-6
Washington 4-3 7-6
F & M 3-4 7-7
Dickinson 2-4 6-8
Swarthmore 1-6 5-10
Bryn Mawr 0-5 4-9
Haverford 0-6 5-9


Gettysburg (22-5, 6-0) needed only 65 minutes to sweep Swarthmore, at the time the only other undefeated team in CC play. The Garnet (3-3) also lost to Franklin & Marshall (12-9, 5-1) and Washington to fall into sixth place. Johns Hopkins (19-6, 6-1) is in second, with Haverford and Dickinson both at 4-2.

Golf Team Inches Closer to Title
Soccer Teams Sixth

The Muhlenberg men’s golf team finished second at its final tournament of the fall season, its own Muhlenberg Fall Classic.

The Mules, who were seven strokes behind New Jersey, finished fourth at Matt Katz the Fall Classic in 2001 and third last year.

Only seven golfers shot 80 or better at Lehigh Country Club, and three of them were from Muhlenberg. Freshman Brian Ruht, playing in his first home tournament, took home the third-place plaque with a 77. Senior Matt Katz (pictured) shot a 79, one stroke better than sophomore Brian Farrelly.

The Muhlenberg B team was sixth, beating nine other teams. Freshman Pat Moyle led the second squad with an 83.
