Soccer Teams Blanked; Cross Country Teams Sixth

Men’s Soccer: Wabash 1, Muhlenberg 0. The Mules suffered their first loss of the season despite dominating the game. Muhlenberg outshot Wabash, 26-4, including a 16-1 edge in the second half, but Little Giant goalie John Taggart lived up to the second part of his team nickname by making 14 saves. The lone goal came off a corner kick with just three seconds left in the half. Click here for box score.

In the first game of the Mule Invitational, Stevens Tech upended Delaware Valley, 3-1.

Women’s Soccer: Scranton 2, Muhlenberg 0. The regionally ranked Lady Royals scored once in each half to spoil the Mules’ home opener. Muhlenberg had an apparent tying goal called back in the second half by an offside. Click here for box score.

Greensboro, the next opponent for the Mules, scored two minutes into overtime for a thrilling 2-1 win over Haverford in the first game of the Mule Invitational.

Cross Country: Running shorthanded, both Muhlenberg teams placed sixth at the annual Lehigh Valley Championships. Sophomores Karen Mount (seventh) and Alexander Hotz (ninth) finished in the top 10 in their respective races. Click here for box score.

The Muhlenberg volleyball team got off to a good start at the sixth annual Buttermaker Tournament, sweeping both Neumann and Misericordia to take the early lead in the Pool A standings.

The Mules (4-3) play their third and final scheduled match of the tournament on Saturday morning against Catholic. The winner will most likely take first place in Pool A and go on to play for the tournament championship in the afternoon.

Muhlenberg made history in its sweep of Neumann by winning the first game, 30-9. It marked the first time in the two years-plus of rally scoring that the Mules held an opponent to single digits in a game. Muhlenberg wound up tying a school record with 20 aces in the match, including seven by sophomore Mary Henning and six by classmate Julie Lauro.

Lauro also had 12 kills with only one error and added a dozen more kills against Misericordia. Freshman Kate Haggerty tied her career high with 11 kills in the second match.
