MEN’S LAX COMEBACK FALLS SHORT
Men’s Golf Fourth at Elizabethtown
Walach Ties for Sixth

Sophomore Chris Walach shot a 75 to lead four Muhlenberg players in the 70s as the Mule men’s golf team finished fourth out of 16 teams at Elizabethtown’s Blue Jay Classic.

Muhlenberg’s team score of 310 was its second best of the year, just a stroke behind its 309 at the Moravian Fall Invitational. The Mules have placed in the top five in all but three of their eight tournaments for the year.

Walach, who also led Muhlenberg with a 78 at E-town’s fall invite, was joined under 80 by senior Matt Katz (77), junior Matthew Schoenfeld (79) and sophomore Brian Farrelly (79). The last time the Mules had four players in the 70s was at the 2000 Muhlenberg Fall Classic.

Freshmen Cliff Burwell and Sean Toohill scored fourth-quarter goals to trim a three-goal fourth-quarter deficit to one, but the Muhlenberg men’s lacrosse team could not find a tying goal and lost to Haverford, 7-6, at Scotty Wood Stadium.

Down 7-4, Burwell took advantage of a Haverford penalty to score his second goal of the game with 6:06 left. Toohill added his third of the night at the 4:47 mark. The Mules got several late chances, but could not get the ball past the Ford goalie.

The Mules (5-3, 0-2) got one final shot when defensemen Kyle Hart and Bradley Lutzer teamed up to knock the ball away from a Haverford attack player. Lutzer snatched up the ground ball, and Muhlenberg got across midfield and called timeout with 1:35 remaining.

The Mules had a shot saved and picked up the ensuing ground ball, but could not get off another shot before the final horn.

Toohill also scored the first two goals for Muhlenberg, which outshot Haverford, 28-23. He is second on the team with 13 goals after his second hat trick of the season. Burwell is tied for fourth on the squad with nine goals.

Haverford (7-1, 2-1) scored three straight goals after the Mules tied the score, 3-3, in the second quarter. Muhlenberg netted one late in the third, and the Fords countered with the first score of the fourth before the Mule comeback.

Lutzer, a junior, and sophomore Ryan Long picked up five ground balls each to lead the Mules. Toohill scooped up four.
