Freshman Jonathan Kliewer scored his first career goal in the first half and the Muhlenberg men’s soccer team added two more in the second half for a 3-0 win against Gettysburg.

The win was the third in a row for the Mules (6-7-2, 3-3-1), who were winless in their previous five games. Muhlenberg has scored 10 goals in its last three games after netting only 16 in the first 12 of the season.

In the Centennial Conference playoff picture, the Mules are still on the outside looking in. They are in sixth place and will need help to get into the five-team playoffs.

Muhlenberg put on an impressive show against the Bullets (8-6-1, 4-2-1), who came in ranked ninth in the Mid-Atlantic Region and had neither given up three goals in a game nor lost a game by more than one goal.

On the first goal, Kliewer beat his defender on the wing and turned into the box. The Gettysburg ’keeper came out to challenge, but Kliewer beat him too with a ground shot to the far post.

The Mules extended their lead in the 14th minute of the second half when junior Christopher King took a pass in the middle from senior Ryan Melchior and fired home his fourth goal in three games.

Junior James Henshaw headed in a Karim Assous free kick with 19:23 to play to cap the scoring. The assist was Assous’ seventh, establishing a new school record for freshmen.

their position for a Centennial Conference playoff berth, but they still need to win their regular-season finale at Ursinus next Saturday.

Armstrong converted a penalty kick after she was taken down in the box with 13:20 left in the first half. It was her eighth career goal – out of 39 total – against the Shorewomen (2-10-2, 0-7-1).

With less than three minutes to go before halftime, junior Amy Schmidt took a pass from senior Maureen McLaughlin at the top of the box and scored her fifth goal in as many games with a perfectly placed shot.

Early in the second half, sophomore Elana Rabinowitz redirected a wide shot from Armstrong to cap the scoring.

Senior Stacey Spector made six saves for her third straight shutout, extending her unscored-upon string to 492 minutes.

The win gave Muhlenberg double digits in victories for the seventh year in a row.
