SOCCER TEAMS EXTEND STREAKS
Late Goal Gives Women Win

Senior Mallory DiMaio scored her team-leading eighth goal of the season with 9:31 left in regulation to lift the Muhlenberg women’s soccer team to its seventh win in a row, 1-0 against Moravian in its last scheduled home game.

After an even first half, the Mules (11-5) turned up the pressure in the second 45, outshooting the Greyhounds (7-8) by an 11-2 margin. Muhlenberg missed several good scoring chances before finally breaking through off a corner kick. Moravian’s attempted clear of Kimberly Hacker’s kick never made it out of the box. Freshman Samantha Hoffman took a shot from near the top of the box that deflected off a Greyhound back to DiMaio, who volleyed the ball over the head over the Moravian keeper from close range.

Seniors Shauna Henley and Kayla Boisvert combined for three stops for the Mules’ fifth shutout in their last six games.

The win was the first for the Mules against Moravian since 2001 and extended Muhlenberg’s lead in the 2006-07 Matte Award standings to 3-1.

closer to a Centennial Conference playoff berth.

With one game left in the regular season, the Mules (8-4-2, 4-3-1) are alone in fifth place in the CC, a half-game ahead of Dickinson. Muhlenberg finishes up at last-place Ursinus on Saturday, while Dickinson, fresh off an upset of nationally ranked Franklin & Marshall, hosts Gettysburg.

Speed played a key role in two of the Mules’ three goals. Just four minutes into the game, junior Jonathan Kliewer was taken down in the box after burning his defender on a run from the midfield. The Ford goalie dove right on the penalty kick, and Dalton shot in the other direction.

Haverford (2-13-1, 1-6-1), which has not won at Muhlenberg since 1969, kept the contest close the rest of the first half, but the Mules came out strong in the second. Senior Peter Palomaki was denied early in the half when his shot was headed out by a Ford defender.

Muhlenberg extended its lead to two goals 13 minutes after the break. Junior Karim Assous won a throwin from sophomore Josh Glueck and slipped a nice pass through the middle to Dalton, who took a couple of touches, drew the goalie out and tucked his shot inside the left post.

Late in the game, sophomore Steve Tenenzapf used his speed to run down a ball on the left flank, then fed classmate Brendan Carroll for the Mules’ third goal. Haverford spoiled the shutout on a fluke goal with 2:07 to play.
