Men’s Soccer
Muhlenberg’s mastery of the road continued, and its mastery of Washington resumed, with a 4-0 win.

The Mules (8-3, 4-1) are now 5-0 away from Varsity Field this season, outscoring their opponents 19-0. And after losing to the Shoremen for the first time ever last year, Muhlenberg looked to start a new streak with its most decisive win in the 23-game history of the series.

Seniors Adison Weseloh and Samuel Hayden scored goals in the first half to stake the Mules to a 2-0 lead. Hayden’s was his first of the season.

Muhlenberg doubled its margin with goals very early and very late in the second half: Sophomore Cody Antonini put in a shot off a great long pass from Hayden just 26 seconds after the break, and freshman Danny Way closed out the scoring with only 33 seconds on the clock. (corrected 10/14) With 10 goals, Antonini is the first Mule sophomore to reach double digits since 2003.

record against the Shorewomen to 12-0. The game was the middle one of a five-game run for Muhlenberg that includes nationally ranked Centennial Conference foes Dickinson, Swarthmore and Johns Hopkins.

The Mules (6-5, 3-1) took a 1-0 lead 7:07 into the second half on an own goal when senior Kimberly Hacker sent a corner kick crossing in front of the goal. A Washington defender accidentally played the ball into the goal while trying to clear it. Muhlenberg made it 2-0 when freshman Maggie Neary sent a pass ahead on a break to sophomore Meghan O’Grady, who scored at 63:34. O’Grady has now scored a point in five of the last six games; for Neary, it was her first career point.
