FEWER POINTS, BUT STILL TWO WINS
WRESTLERS DROP FIRST DUAL MEET

The Muhlenberg wrestling team dropped its first dual meet of the season, 27-18 at McDaniel in a makeup of the match originally scheduled for last Wednesday.

The Mules won just one of the first seven bouts – a 12-7 decision by sophomore Dale Mills at 149. The Green Terror held a 27-3 lead before Muhlenberg took the final three matches.

One of the Mules’ wins came at 197 by freshman Matt Loesch, who notched a pin to improve his perfect record to 8-0.

the result was the same: two wins.

• Women’s Basketball: The Mules came back from a 12-point halftime deficit to win their Centennial Conference opener over Franklin & Marshall, 66-58.

Sophomore Gwen Doyle scored all 10 of her points after halftime as Muhlenberg (3-0, 1-0) outscored the Diplomats (0-3, 0-1) 41-21 in the second 20 minutes.

The Mules made only six of their first 33 attempts from the field and trailed by as many as 15 points (35-20) late in the first half. But they gradually pecked away at the lead, tying the score at 48 on a runner by senior Erin DeVaney with 9:15 left and taking their first lead 50 seconds later on a Jill Friedman bucket.

Doyle, Kristen Piscadlo and Stephanie Coluccini combined to go 10-for-12 from the line down the stretch to ice the victory.

Muhlenberg forced 36 turnovers and held F&M to 26.5-percent shooting in the second half.

• Men’s Basketball: Sophomore Jimmy O’Brien scored a career-high 19 points to lead the Mules to their second straight win, 56-48 against Arcadia.

Two days after a 47-point win against Elms, the Mules (2-1) found themselves in a low-scoring tight struggle, but pulled away thanks to some clutch second-half shooting.

After Muhlenberg scored the first six points of the game, neither team led by more than five points until the final 10 minutes. The Mules were up 38-37 with 9:40 left before going on an 11-2 run that featured two three-pointers from Dennis Severino and one from Ryan Bonda.

Bonda finished with eight points and junior Chase Licata added seven points and eight rebounds.
