VOLLEYBALL FALLS IN HOME FINALE

A dramatic comeback in the second game wasn’t enough as the Muhlenberg volleyball team lost to Haverford, 3-1.

After dropping the first game, 30-22, the Mules (8-18, 1-6) overcame a late five-point deficit to win the second. Trailing 27-22, Muhlenberg won five straight points to tie the score. The teams then traded points until the Mules won two straight to take the game, 33-31.

The momentum did not last for the Mules, who lost the final two games, 30-21 and 30-23. The Fords (18-6, 5-2) have won six straight matches.

Sophomore Emily Reardon had 20 assists to become the fifth Mule with at least 1,000 assists in her career. Jen Weist led the team with 25 digs and became the third player in school history to record over 400 digs in a season.

Women’s Soccer Clinches Playoff Berth

win.

The victory clinched a Centennial Conference playoff berth for the Mules (11-3-1, 7-1), who remained tied for first place with Gettysburg, a 3-0 winner over Franklin & Marshall. Each team has two league games remaining, Muhlenberg at Washington and home against Ursinus; Gettysburg home against Haverford and at Dickinson.

The Mules scored once in each half, both times on rebounds, to win their 23rd consecutive CC regular-season home game.

With 18 minutes left in the first half, the Red Devil goalie came way out of the goal area, and although she recovered in time to tap away Monica Jones’ high shot, senior Courtney Levine was there to knock in the rebound. It was the fifth game-winning goal of the season for Levine, who has scored five of her seven goals in CC games.

The second goal came early in the second half on a play that began and ended with junior Kimberly Klicka. After Klicka stole the ball from a Dickinson (8-5-1, 4-3) defender just outside the box, she fed Rebecca Armstrong making a run to her left. Armstrong’s shot was deflected out to Klicka, who got barely enough of the ball with her sliding shot to tuck it inside the left post for her first goal in more than two years.

Three saves by freshman Kayla Boisvert and solid play from the back line kept the CC’s top offensive team (2.77 goals per game) off the scoreboard for only the second time all season. Muhlenberg has defeated Dickinson eight straight times, the last five by shutout.
