Women’s soccer wins 2-0, now 2-0 in CC
Well, the Mules have started a new trend – beating Haverford by more than one. Last year it was by three. This year the lucky number is two, as Muhlenberg shut out the Fords 2-0.
It looked like another close
“We knew we needed to pick up the intensity,” said freshman Jamie Weiss, “and do what we’ve been doing in practice – play quickly, get to the outside, work with each other.”
Weiss found the back of the net 22:34 into the second half off a pass from Miller. Weiss walked the cross in for her second career goal.
Junior Kasey Hacker followed less than five minutes later, off a corner by sister Kimberly Hacker. Kimberly’s pass was dribbled by Kasey for about 10 yards before being launched into the upper right corner.
“We knew we had to want it,” said Kasey. “We had to have that intensity and push through the final buzzer.”
That push resulted in a 2-0 win against a Haverford team that made the Centennial Conference playoffs last year and lost 1-0 this year to the current No. 2 team in Division III (Lynchburg). The Mules (7-2, 2-0) now have four shutouts on the season and are one of three remaining undefeated teams in CC play.
