Men’s Soccer Blanked

Football Comes Up Short

The Dickinson football team scored three first-quarter touchdowns and held on to defeat Muhlenberg, 24-14. The loss was the third in a row for the Mules (2-3, 0-2) and their first to the Red Devils (4-1, 2-0) since 1998.

Trailing 24-7 at halftime, Muhlenberg closed to within 10 points on a 13-yard touchdown pass from sophomore Eric Santagato to senior Stephen Montalto with 6:49 left in the third. The Mules drove inside the Red Devil 20-yard line three times in the fourth quarter, but were turned away with no points.

With 14:01 left in the game, junior Tom Tarsitano was stopped at the 7-yard line, four yards short of a first down, on a fake field goal. Muhlenberg had third-and-goal at the 1 on its next possession, but two running plays were stuffed.

The Mules made it to the Dickinson 6 in the final two minutes, only to have that drive end with an interception in the end zone.

Montalto caught seven passes and set a school record for tight ends with 118 receiving yards.

Dickinson scored two touchdowns in a span of 1:29 in the first quarter to open up a 14-0 lead. Sophomore Brandon Doyle returned the ensuing kickoff 62 yards to the Dickinson 6-yard line, setting up a touchdown run by senior Jerome Beverly on the next play.

A fumbled punt by Muhlenberg led to Dickinson’s third touchdown, with just 23 seconds left in the first quarter.

The Mule defense stiffened after that, holding the Red Devils to three points on two second-quarter drives into the Red Zone. In the second half, Dickinson managed only 51 total yards and two first downs.

Tarsitano led the defensive unit with nine tackles. Sophomore David Mazzola had 1½ sacks among his eight tackles, while sophomore Matt Rathbun recorded 2½ tackles for loss.
