WOMEN’S BASKETBALL TAKES BITE
OUT OF BULLDOGS

The DeSales women’s basketball team started four freshmen against Muhlenberg’s four seniors, but it was two freshmen off the bench who propelled the Mules to a 59-50 victory.

Lauren Boyle had a game-high 13 points and four steals, and Bethany Enterline scored a career-high 10 points in just 13 minutes

of play for the Mules, who broke a three-game losing streak to the Bulldogs (1-3) and improved to 4-0 for the fourth time in five seasons.

Muhlenberg had control through most of the game, but a late 15-3 run by DeSales brought it within five with just over two minutes to play. However, good ball movement and four free throws apiece from Boyle and senior Lacie Smith iced the game.

Boyle entered the first half with Muhlenberg up 8-4 and made an immediate impact with three quick baskets, the last two of which started a 12-0 run that saw the Mules stretch their lead to 22-6 and DeSales go without a basket for just under seven minutes.

The Bulldogs cut the lead to 10 at 24-14 with 4:23 left, but Enterline entered the game and recorded eight points in a two-minute stretch to help the Mules go into the half up 35-19.

Muhlenberg went up by as many as 20 in the second half following senior Stephanie Coluccini’s putback at 10:59

“We came out and played hard today on both ends,” said Boyle. “It’s fun coming off the bench and building up the excitement. Sometimes you are not as pumped with a big lead, but it came down to free throws and we came through.”

Smith had 11 points and a game-high 14 rebounds for her first double-double of the season. Junior Megan Courtney had seven points and seven rebounds.

“We really played as a team today,” said senior Kristen Piscadlo, who had a game-high six assists. “We are showing teams that we will be strong on offense and defense from the get-go.”
