III poll.

This is the Mules’ first time in the top 10 since 1990, when they climbed as high as No. 5.

Ten was the magic number of the day for Muhlenberg, which extended its winning streak to 10 with a 2-1 win at Delaware Valley. This marks the fifth time in team history that a winning streak has reached double digits.

The Mules (6-0) struggled with the Aggies (2-2) in their first game on grass all season. They needed a late score to squeeze out a one-goal win for the second time in four days.

Freshman Jessica Hand scored the winner this time, shooting in a long cross from the corner by junior Sarah Fosdick with 4:09 on the clock. It was her first career goal.

Sophomore Alexa Sterbinsky gave Muhlenberg a 1-0 lead late in the first half, but Delaware Valley tied the game less than five minutes later. Click here for box score.

Muhlenberg welcomes No. 9 Montclair State for a showdown between top-10 teams on Saturday.
