ONE UP, ONE DOWN FOR MULES
Field Hockey Falls to Another Nationally Ranked Team

The 16th-ranked Gettysburg field hockey team scored two second-half goals to come from behind and defeat Muhlenberg, 2-1.

Sophomore Sara Levin gave the Mules (8-5, 3-3) a 1-0 advantage over just 1:10 into the second half, but it would not hold up as the Bullets (8-3, 5-1) found the back of the goal twice in the last 30 minutes to get the win.

Levin scored her goal on a rebounded Lisa Ann Polt shot after Jessica Hand stole a pass. However, the Bullets answered with a goal of their own seven minutes later. Gettysburg scored the game-winner off a penalty corner with 15:49 left in the contest.

The Mules and Gettysburg both rank in the top 10 in Division III in scoring defense and that was evident as each team was allowed only five shots. Senior Sarah Fosdick notched her second defensive save of the season for Muhlenberg.

Of the Mules’ five losses, three are by one goal to teams currently ranked in the top 20 in Division III.

Women’s Soccer Keeps Rolling

The Muhlenberg women’s soccer team extended its unbeaten streak to five with a 1-0 win over Franklin & Marshall that was much more one-sided than the final score indicated.

The Mules (8-3-1, 4-1-1) held a 29-4 advantage in shots, but only put six of their shots on goal.

’Berg capitalized on its first corner kick to score the lone goal of the game. After a shot by freshman Ashley Reed was saved off the line by a Diplomat (4-8, 1-5) defender, the ball was cleared out to the Mules’ backs. Freshman Maura Hendsey sent the ball back in, and senior Kimberly Klicka headed it into the net for her second goal of the season. The assist gave Hendsey her first career point.

Muhlenberg kept the pressure up after the goal and nearly extended its lead with three minutes left in the half. The Mules took four shots in quick succession, with one by senior Rebecca Armstrong hitting the crossbar and another by sophomore Andrea Dello Russo clanging off the post.

The inability to finish did not come back to haunt the Mules, who outshot F&M 17-3 in the first half and did not permit another shot until late in the game. That shot was saved by senior Stacey Spector, who played the entire game to record her first career solo shutout. Spector has not allowed a goal in her last 278 minutes.
