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

Men’s Soccer
Muhlenberg is the only team that has clinched a playoff spot. Six teams are in contention for the other three berths. McDaniel, which has won six in a row to vault into a tie for second place, plays two of the other contenders this week: home vs. Gettysburg on Wednesday and at Washington on Saturday. Washington also hosts Johns Hopkins this week. Gettysburg, loser of four in a row, finishes up at home against Dickinson, while Hopkins plays its regular-season finale at home against Franklin & Marshall.
MUHLENBERG 7-0 13-4
Johns Hopkins 5-2 12-2-1
McDaniel 5-2 13-5

Women’s Soccer
Muhlenberg and Gettysburg have clinched playoff berths, and the Mules can secure the top seed with a win against Ursinus on Saturday or a Bullet loss at Dickinson. Johns Hopkins hosts Dickinson on Tuesday in a key matchup of the teams currently tied for fourth. Hopkins finishes up at F&M. McDaniel is still alive after scoring a 1-0 win at Ursinus and has two more road games this week, against Washington and Haverford.

Washington 0-8 4-10-1

Field Hockey
Ursinus, Johns Hopkins and McDaniel have clinched playoff spots, and Gettysburg needs to defeat Dickinson or Bryn Mawr this week to lock up the final berth. The only other team with a mathematical chance is Washington, which needs a win Saturday at Muhlenberg and two Gettysburg losses.
Ursinus 8-0 13-5
Johns Hopkins 7-1 9-6
McDaniel 7-2 13-4
Gettysburg 6-2 9-5
Washington 5-4 8-7

Volleyball

With a week left in the regular season, the playoff field is all set. Gettysburg (25-5, 9-0), which has won 19 in a row, is the top seed and will host the tournament. The Bullets’ first-round opponent will be Haverford (19-7, 6-3), while the other first-round matchup pairs Johns Hopkins (21-6, 8-1) with Franklin & Marshall (14-10, 7-2).

Women’s Soccer: Armstrong Honored, Game Postponed
Mules Receive Votes in National Poll

Junior Rebecca Armstrong of the Muhlenberg women’s soccer team has been Rebecca
Armstrongnamed co-player of the week by the Centennial Conference.

Armstrong was honored after recording her second career hat trick, scoring three goals in the first 24 minutes of a 3-1 win at Washington. Her first career hat trick also came against the Shorewomen, last year. Armstrong added an assist in the Mules’ 2-0 shutout of Dickinson and leads the team with 24 points on 10 goals and four assists.

Armstrong has to wait a little longer to get the chance to add to those numbers, as today’s scheduled game at Moravian was rained out and rescheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 29, at 3:00. In addition to being for local bragging rights and a Matte Award point, the game will feature two of the top teams in the Mid-Atlantic Region. Muhlenberg (12-3-1) has moved up to fifth in the regional rankings and received votes for the national top 25, and Moravian (9-2-3) is ranked eighth:

1. Scranton (16-0-1)
2. Messiah (12-1-3)
3. Montclair State (12-4)
4. New Jersey (12-4)
5t. Muhlenberg (12-3-1)
5t. Lebanon Valley (9-2-4)
7. Gettysburg (12-4)
8. Moravian (9-2-3)
9. Rutgers-Camden (11-3-3)
10. Eastern (14-3-1)

The top eight in the men’s soccer regional rankings remained unchanged from last week:

1. Elizabethtown (14-1-1)
2. Carnegie Mellon (11-1)
3. Drew (13-1-2)
4. Johns Hopkins (12-2-1)
5. Messiah (13-2-2)
6. Muhlenberg (13-4)
7. Eastern (11-3-2)
8. Arcadia (11-4-1)
9. McDaniel (13-5)
10. Frostburg State (9-4-2)
