SOCCER TEAMS SPLIT
Defensive Struggles Continue for Men

The Elizabethtown men’s soccer team, ranked 10th in the Mid-Atlantic Region, scored twice in each half to hand Muhlenberg a 4-1 loss.

It was the second time in three games, and the third time this season, that the Mules (3-5-2) allowed four goals.

The Blue Jays (6-2-3) scored an early goal, but Muhlenberg tied the score with 12:15 left in the first half. Junior Joseph Benner sent a long cross from the end line to the far post, and freshman Karim Assous one-timed it back across the goal mouth, depositing it in the back of the net inside the near post for his second goal.

Elizabethtown went ahead less than five minutes later, however, and added two insurance goals in the second half.

Schmidt Leads Women Past Bryn Mawr

Junior midfielder Amy Schmidt got her first and second goals of the season as she led the Muhlenberg women’s soccer team to a 3-0 win over Centennial Conference rival Bryn Mawr (3-6-1, 0-3).

Senior Rebecca Armstrong got the Mules (6-3-1, 3-1-1) on the board at the 22:25 mark with her fifth goal of the year, off an endline cross from fellow senior Katie Macomber. An Owl defender nearly kept the ball out, but it trickled across the goal line.

Schmidt got her first goal 12 minutes later with a hard shot to the top right corner of the goal. She finished the scoring at the 54:15 mark with another bullet to the back of the net. It was her first career multiple-goal game.

The Mule defense did its job, holding the Owls to just three shots, as opposed to the 22 shots Muhlenberg took. Kayla Boisvert started and made two saves in goal for the Mules. Stacey Spector and Shauna Henley split the second half, but neither faced a shot on goal.

Muhlenberg has defeated Bryn Mawr 11 straight years, the last five by shutout, and is undefeated in its last 27 CC regular-season home matches.

Armstrong leads the Mules with five goals this season and, with 37 career goals, is tied for 11th in CC history. She needs one more goal to move into the top 10.
