WEIST SETS SEASON DIG RECORD

The Muhlenberg volleyball team dropped a five-game match to Ursinus, but sophomore libero Jen Weist made 35 digs to set a new ’Berg season record with 490. The old record was set by Allison Verduin in 1999.

The Mules (10-19, 3-7) lost a tight first game, 30-28, but came back to win the next two, 30-25 and 30-27. The Bears (9-18, 4-6) dominated the final two games, winning by scores of 30-23 and 15-8.

Freshman Kristin Caparro had four aces for the Mules.

FIELD HOCKEY DEFEATED BY F&M

The Muhlenberg field hockey came from behind once, but could not do it again and fell to Franklin & Marshall, 2-1, at Scotty Wood Stadium.

After a scoreless first half, the Mules (11-6, 3-5) allowed a goal early in the second. Muhlenberg tied the score when sophomore Steph Light passed the ball to junior Kristen Bruschi, who shot it past the diving F&M goalkeeper. The goal brought Bruschi’s career point total to 94, one shy of the Mule career record.

The Diplomats (8-9, 4-5) took back the lead when Eileen Keever scored her second goal of the night with less than 12 minutes remaining. The Mules had a penalty corner in the final minute, but could not answer.

Women’s Soccer Plays Scoreless Draw

A postponed and displaced matchup between two regionally ranked women’s soccer teams ended in a big zero as Muhlenberg and Moravian played to a scoreless tie.

The game was rained out on Monday, then moved to J. Birney Crum Stadium in Allentown after rain pelted the Moravian soccer field again on Wednesday. By prior arrangement, there was no overtime played.

Although each team got off seven shots, there were no serious scoring chances until 11 minutes remained, when Mule goalie Kayla Boisvert saved a headed corner kick off the crossbar.

It was the first scoreless tie since 1995 for the Mules (12-3-2), who had their winning streak snapped at eight. The Greyhounds (9-2-4), ranked eighth in the Mid-Atlantic Region, played their fourth 0-0 tie of the season.

The schools split the Matte Award point, leaving the standings tied at 2½-2½.
