Men’s Lacrosse
2007 Season Review:

Kyle Hart
Hart (pictured) and Farris were the first two players in program history to earn All-CC honors twice. Hart received honorable mention in 2005.
The Muhlenberg men’s lacrosse team took another positive step in 2007, finishing with a .500 record (6-6) for the first time in the five years since the sport was reinstated.

They didn’t make the playoffs in the tough Centennial Conference, but the Mules stayed positive throughout. One of their best games came after they were eliminated from playoff contention. Trailing 5-2 early in the third quarter in the next-to-last game of the season, Muhlenberg stormed back for a 12-8 win at McDaniel.

The Mules began the season with three straight wins, all on the road, including a 7-6 victory at Randolph-Macon that improved the team’s record in overtime games to 6-0. Muhlenberg also came back from a 5-2 deficit to win at Kings Point, 12-8.

All six of the Mules’s win came on the road, but they were 0-4 at Scotty Wood Stadium. In one of those games, Muhlenberg was tied with
Sean Toohill
Toohill scored the game-winning goal 16 seconds into overtime at Randolph-Macon and netted four hat tricks on the season.
Haverford, then ranked 16th in Division III, in the fourth quarter before falling, 7-5.

Senior Sean Toohill scored three points in the finale against Ursinus to tie the school record with 106 career points. He also graduated with 75 goals, just two shy of the school record, as well as third all-time in assists with 31.

Earlier in the season, the Mules battled Swarthmore and came out with their first CC win when senior Kyle Hart broke the school record for career ground balls. He graduated from Muhlenberg with 173 and led the team in 2007 with 39, earning him second team all-CC honors.

Fellow graduating senior Steven Toto tied for third on the team with 29 ground balls and ended up third in team history with 145 for his career. Sophomore John DeLuca and freshman Matthew Schreoder also had solid seasons on a defense that allowed fewer than 10 goals per game in the CC for the first time.

On the offensive end, Toohill led the way with 27 points on 19 goals and eight assists. Not far behind him were junior Kyle Farris (25 points on 20 goals and five assists), sophomore Andrew Lolley (24 points on 18 goals and six assists) and junior Mickey Norton (23 points on eight goals and 15 assists). Both Toohill and Farris ranked

among the top 15 in the CC in goals and points per game, and Norton finished second with 1.25 assists per game. Farris earned All-CC honorable mention honors for his efforts.

In the faceoff circle, sophomore Dan Dugan was most victorious with 51 wins. Junior Tim Martin, however, was most efficient, winning 62.5 percent of his faces. Martin’s percentage landed him third in the CC in that category, while Dugan finished fifth with a .548 percentage. Freshman Ari Jacobson, who won 50.8 percent of his faceoff attempts, ranked eighth in the conference.

Freshman Andrew Bell made an impressive debut as the team’s only goaltender, finishing the season sixth in the conference with 9.50 saves per game, including a career-high 22 in a 15-6 win over Moravian.
