WOMEN’S SOCCER HOLDS OFF KEAN
MEN’S SOCCER WINS FIRST

Junior Jose Ramirez scored on a direct kick from 20 yards out midway through the first half, giving the Muhlenberg men’s soccer team its first win of the season, 1-0 against host Clarkson in the second round of the Doug May LOTTO Classic.

Ramirez’ goal, the 12th of his career, came after a Golden Knight player was assessed a yellow card.

Senior Chris Davis made four saves in goal to earn his 19th career shutout. (corrected 9/6)

St. Lawrence, which handed the Mules a 4-1 loss on Saturday, won the tournament with a 6-0 whitewash of Frostburg State. Muhlenberg finished second.

Juniors James Henshaw, who scored the lone Mule goal against St. Lawrence, and Jonathan Roman were named to the all-tournament team.

Goals by freshman Ashley Reed and sophomore Andrea Dello Russo late in the first half were all the Muhlenberg women’s soccer team needed to defeat Kean, 2-1, and win the championship of the Kean Invitational for the second year in a row.

The two goals both came in the final five minutes of the opening stanza, and both came off restarts. The first was set up when Reed drew a foul

outside the penalty box. Katie Amari’s free kick found an open Kimberly Klicka for a shot. The Cougar goalie made a diving save, but Reed hammered home the rebound.

Reed, who provided the third goal in Saturday’s 3-1 win against William Paterson, is the first Mule freshman to score goals in each of her first two games since 1999.

Less than three minutes later, senior Rebecca Armstrong drew a foul at the corner of the box. The ball eventually found its way to sophomore Andrea Dello Russo, who beat the goalie one-on-one for her first career goal.

Senior Stacey Spector played the first half in goal, making three saves.

Kean cut the Mules’ lead in half by scoring on a breakaway in the fifth minute of the second half. Muhlenberg held on to the lead despite getting outshot 13-3 in the second half.

The Mules are 14-1-1 in their last 16 games. Their lone loss during that span came to Scranton – which will be their next opponent when they return home for next weekend’s Mule Classic.
