FIELD HOCKEY CLINCHES HOME GAME
VOLLEYBALL CLOSES WITH WIN

The Muhlenberg volleyball team ended its 2006 season with a come-from-behind 3-1 victory at Washington.

The Mules (10-15, 4-6) rebounded after dropping the first game to sweep the next three for their third win in four matches, extending the program’s streak of years with double digits in wins to 16.

Junior Jess Anselmi led Muhlenberg with a season-high 18 kills. Senior Kate Haggerty notched 11 kills in the final match of her career, finishing with 969, the fifth-most in team history.

Two of the other seniors competing in a Mule uniform for the last time combined to close out the match, with Kristin Caparro serving the last two points and Monica Sella scoring them on kills.

The Muhlenberg field hockey team clinched a home playoff game by sweating out a 3-1 win at Washington in its final match of the regular season.

The Mules (11-6, 6-4), who won their third in a row, will host Gettysburg in a Centennial Conference first-round game on Wednesday, Nov. 1, at a time to be determined. The two

teams tied for fourth place in the CC, but Muhlenberg earned the fourth seed on the basis of its head-to-head win.

The Mules appeared to be headed for a comfortable afternoon when they jumped out to a two-goal lead. Eleven minutes into the game, junior Jillian Duffy tipped in a ball sent in from outside the circle by classmate Lauren Rutt. Freshman Kristen Sabia redirected Duffy’s cross with 15:21 left in the half to make the score 2-0.

At that point, Muhlenberg had margins of 10-0 in shots and 5-0 in penalty corners, but the Shorewomen (2-15, 2-9), who forced CC second seed Johns Hopkins to come from behind in their last home game, came back. Washington scored with 4:14 left in the half to cut the lead in half and almost tied the game 11 minutes into the second half, but senior Kate Moyer made a defensive save.

Senior Lauren Schram stopped a penalty stroke with 3:56 left in the second half to preserve the Mules’ slim lead. Freshman Nicole Notarianni finally put the nail in the coffin when she converted a penalty stroke with just 1:11 showing on the clock.

Schram finished with six saves, moving into fourth place on the program’s all-time list with 338 for her career.
