Men’s Golf in Third

The Muhlenberg men’s soccer team gave up an early goal and never caught up in suffering its third loss in a row, 3-1 at home to Dickinson.

The Red Devils (8-6, 2-4) scored just 77 seconds into the game and took their 1-0 lead into halftime. Dickinson also struck quickly in the second half, scoring 8:32 after the break to double its lead.

Just like they did in Tuesday’s 2-1 loss to Drew, the Mules (5-4-2, 2-3-1) picked up their play after falling behind by two goals and did not allow another shot until the closing seconds. Muhlenberg cut the deficit in half when senior Peter Palomaki headed in a free kick from sophomore Billy Dalton with 23:35 remaining. The Mules won the free kick when junior Jonathan Kliewer was fouled while making a run down the right side.

Kliewer drew another foul a minute later, but a header went over the crossbar. Palomaki’s header of a corner kick was just high with about 13 minutes left.

With the entire Muhlenberg team pushed up to the center line in the final minute, Dickinson put the game away by scoring on a breakaway with 30 seconds on the clock.

To extend its longest winning streak since 2003 to four games, Muhlenberg had to defeat a Bullet (9-4-1, 5-2) squad that is ranked fourth in the Mid-Atlantic Region and had given up only one goal in its last four games. Gettysburg’s only two losses in its previous nine games were to top-ranked Messiah and 12th-ranked Johns Hopkins, both by 1-0 scores.

The Mules scored the lone goal with 24:57 left. Freshman Christina O’Grady streaked down the left side from about 40 yards out, using her speed to run by one defender to the end line. She made a move around another defender and sent a crossing pass that went by the Bullet ’keeper, who was charging at the play. Freshman Kimberly Hacker got control of the ball near the far post with two Gettysburg defenders around her and punched the ball into the top right of the net.

The Muhlenberg defense held the Bullets to one shot on goal, although another attempt hit the post.
