VOLLEYBALL, WOMEN’S SOCCER FALL
TO REGIONALLY RANKED RIVALS
Moravian Takes Matte Lead

The Moravian women’s soccer team scored once in each half and defeated Muhlenberg, 2-0, in a game played at night in frigid, rainy conditions at Bethlehem School District Stadium.

The Greyhounds (13-3-1) are ranked fifth in the Mid-Atlantic Region. The Mules (4-9-2) have suffered five of their nine losses to regionally ranked teams.

The victory gave Moravian a 3-2 lead in the Matte Award standings for the 2005-06 school year. The next Matte contests are in football and women’s and men’s cross country, all on Saturday, November 12.

The Muhlenberg volleyball team gave Franklin & Marshall, ranked fifth in the region, a run for its money, but the comeback attempt fell short, and the Diplomats won, 3-1.

The Mules (11-16, 3-6) lost for only the third time at home this season. Meanwhile, the Diplomats (15-8, 8-2) played their final Centennial Conference match of the year and clinched a playoff spot.

Trailing two games to none in the match and 19-14 in the third game, Muhlenberg fought its way back. Senior Julie Lauro’s kill ended a streak of five straight points by the Dips, and senior Mary Henning followed by serving six straight points, including three of her team-high four aces, to give the Mules their first lead of the game, 20-19. From there, Muhlenberg scored 10 of the final 13 points for a 30-22 win.

Junior Kate Haggerty rebounded from a rough start to go a perfect 4-for-4 on kills in the third game, tying Lauro with a team-high 14 on the night.

Muhlenberg, trying to come back from down 2-0 for the first time this season, battled hard with Franklin & Marshall throughout the fourth game, but could not recover from a seven-point run that gave the Dips a 19-15 lead.

Junior Monica Sella had a team-high seven blocks (one more than classmate Courtney Williams), moving into seventh on Muhlenberg’s all-time block list.

Senior Jen Weist solidified herself as Muhlenberg’s all-time digs leader with 15 in the match, giving her 1,365 with one match left.
