• Men’s Soccer: Muhlenberg 6, Wilkes 0. Sophomore James Henshaw had two goals and an assist as the Mules cruised to their largest margin of victory in two years.

Sophomore Christopher King recorded his first career points with a goal and an assist, helping Muhlenberg (3-1) to its highest offensive output since a 6-1 defeat of Franklin & Marshall in 2001.

King began the scoring in the 12th minute, converting Henshaw’s flick of a Justin Marx free kick from the left sideline. Less than two minutes later, King sprung Henshaw for a breakaway with a long pass from the Mules’ side of the field.

Henshaw took a long pass from sophomore Adam Milberg en route to his second goal. He would have had a hat trick, but a Colonel defender made a great save, sliding in at the last second to kick away a ball that had beaten the goalie and was headed for the net.

Senior Evan Smallwood scored one goal and assisted freshman Scott Clausen on another 61 seconds later to close out the first-half scoring.

Muhlenberg played all of its reserves in the second half, finishing with a lineup of nine freshmen, one sophomore and one junior, and held on to the shutout. The junior, Nick Richardson, closed out the scoring with his fourth career goal.

Junior Kristen Bruschi scored three goals on her 20th birthday to lead the 12th-ranked Muhlenberg field hockey team to a 3-2 win at Scranton.

It was the first career hat trick for Bruschi, who had five two-goal games last year and two this season. She now has four of her 31 career goals on

her birthday, as she scored the eventual game-winner against Scranton exactly one year ago.

The Mules (4-0), who won their eighth straight dating back to last season, played their closest game of the year. Two Bruschi goals, both assisted by sophomore Alexa Sterbinsky, gave Muhlenberg a 2-0 lead just 10 minutes into the game, but the Lady Royals (1-3) responded quickly with the first goal allowed by the Mules all season.

Bruschi’s third goal made it 3-1 at halftime. Scranton scored 10 minutes into the second half off a penalty corner to make it a one-goal game again.

The Lady Royals took another shot off a penalty corner less than four minutes later, but freshman Lauren Schram made the save on the last shot she faced.

Bruschi’s hat trick was the first by a Muhlenberg player since Kelly Gower and Kerry Lambert scored three apiece in the 2000 home finale against Bryn Mawr.

Senior Alissa Maurer assisted on the first goal for her first career point.
