and took a three-goal lead into halftime.

The Garnet (7-4, 2-3) scored a quick goal coming out of halftime. However, three consecutive goals in four minutes by junior Jessica Geiger, senior Christa Carlstrand and sophomore Katie Reimann put a damper on the Garnet comeback.

Junior Courtney Tapkas led Muhlenberg on offense with three goals and four assists, while Carlstrand added three goals and one assist.

Senior goalie Diana Bleakley recorded a season-high 22 saves, which paved the way for the Mules’ success despite getting outshot, 41-30. “I knew I was physically capable of a game like this; I just needed to mentally get myself prepared,” commented Bleakley after her sixth career 20-save game.

“We had a tough week of practice and it really paid off. Individually everyone worked hard at their own game and we all just really pulled it together here today,” she added.
