men’s soccer wins on late goal
Senior Jonathan Kliewer scored with 6:16 remaining to give the Mules a 1-0 win. Last year, Muhlenberg scored with five seconds left to beat the Green Terror by the same score.
The Mules (8-3, 4-2) held a 23-5 advantage in shots, but were unable to get on the board until the final minutes, when Kliewer struck a 15-yard shot inside the far post for his first goal of the season.
“It was frustrating up until we scored,” said Kliewer, who started at midfield for the first time this year. “To finally get the ball in goal was just a big relief.”
Muhlenberg created a host of chances in the first half, but was denied by the Green Terror goalkeeper and, in Karim Assous’ case, the left post. However, the Mules also weathered several McDaniel counterattacks, with sophomore back Samuel Hayden making a sliding clearance off the goal line in the 32nd minute to deny the visitors on their best scoring chance of the game.
Muhlenberg hasn’t allowed a goal to McDaniel since 2001 and hasn’t conceded a goal to its last three opponents this year. The Mules have seven shutouts in 11 games.
