FIELD HOCKEY MAKES PLAYOFFS

The Muhlenberg field hockey team picked a good time to end three bad streaks.

Before their 2-0 shutout at Franklin & Marshall, the Mules had lost five straight Centennial Conference road games, dating back to last year, hadn’t won back-to-back games in more

than a month, and had never claimed a victory in Lancaster. The result not only retired those trends, but it also gave Muhlenberg a spot in next week’s CC playoffs.

With one game remaining in the regular season, the Mules (10-6, 5-4) are in fifth place in the CC, one game ahead of two teams they beat (Swarthmore and Franklin & Marshall). The playoffs begin on Wednesday, November 1, with the fourth seed hosting the fifth seed. This is Muhlenberg’s first time in the CC playoffs since 2000.

The Mules, who were picked eighth in the CC preseason poll, jumped on top of the Diplomats (4-12, 4-5) by scoring off a penalty corner seven minutes into the game. Senior LisaAnn Polt finished the play for her 11th goal of the season – her seventh in CC games. She is now tied for 12th in team history with 26 career goals.

Senior Jessica Hand added an insurance tally with her 15th career goal late in the second half.

The win gave Muhlenberg double digits in victories for the third time in the last five years.
