FIELD HOCKEY
Muhlenberg gave No. 7 Ursinus a run for its money, but the Bears pulled away late for a 4-1 win.

The Mules (8-6, 3-4) trailed 1-0 at halftime on an early goal, but tied the score a minute into the second half when junior Jillian Duffy converted a cross from freshman Tara Cohn. Duffy and Cohn lead the team in goals (10) and assists (five), respectively.

Ursinus (13-3, 8-0) scored the go-ahead goal with 16:34 left, then added two insurance scores off penalty corners in the final nine minutes.

Senior Lauren Schram made a season-high 16 saves in the loss.

With freshman Christina O’Grady supplying the offense in the first half and senior Kayla Boisvert the defense in the second half, the Muhlenberg women’s soccer team extended its winning streak to five with a 2-1 win at Dickinson.

The Mules (9-5, 5-3) have won four in a row in the Centennial Conference to move into a tie for fourth place. Their last two wins have come on the road against teams ahead of them in the standings.

Muhlenberg got a little help to jump on top in the eighth minute. O’Grady took a shot that was deflected by the Red Devil goalie. A defender tried the clear the ball to the side, but instead hit it into the side of the net for an own goal.

Later in the half, O’Grady picked off a weak pass about 40 yards out and went straight to goal, converting on the one-on-one with the keeper for her fourth goal of the season. O’Grady has scored a point in each of the Mules’ five consecutive wins.

Dickinson (8-6, 5-2), the defending CC regular-season champion, halved the deficit with 26:12 to play in the second half, but Boisvert prevented the Red Devils from tying the score. She made 10 saves in the second half and pulled several dangerous corners out of the air.

Although she had her scoreless streak snapped at 366 minutes, Boisvert finished with a career-high 15 saves, the most by a Muhlenberg goalie since 1997.
