Women’s soccer close to playoff berth
On a cold, windy, overcast day at Ursinus, Toher tried her best to keep warm. The problem
Ursinus, which reached the Centennial Conference championship game last year, had given up only three goals in its previous six games and hadn’t conceded more than four goals in a game since 2002. The last five meetings between the two schools ended up 1-0 or 2-0.
The big win put Muhlenberg on the verge of the CC playoffs. With only a game at Gettysburg remaining in the regular season, the Mules (10-4-3, 5-2-2) are in fourth place in the CC with 17 points. Even if they lose on Saturday, the only way they can be overtaken is if Ursinus (6-9-1, 5-4) rebounds to win at No. 7 Johns Hopkins.
If Muhlenberg wins at Gettysburg (5-6-5, 4-4-1), at worst it will host a CC first-round playoff game.
Freshman Nicolette Miller scored the first and third Mule goals. In between, junior Jennifer Lynch headed in a cross from classmate Kimberly Hacker.
After squandering a 3-0 lead in its last game, Muhlenberg added to it this time, getting second-half goals from junior Kasey Hacker and freshman Renee Dessimone. Aside from games against Washington and Bryn Mawr, the five-goal output was the highest for the Mules in a CC match since 1999.
