Women’s Comeback Falls Short

Muhlenberg scored the last five goals to nearly erase all of a 10-4 deficit, but ran out of time and dropped its final Centennial Conference game of the season, 10-9 to McDaniel.

The Mules (9-6, 3-6) finished in seventh place in the CC, losing games to the three teams in front of them by a total of four goals.

The Green Terror (7-8, 5-4) scored four goals in the first 5:02 and led 9-3 at halftime. After the teams traded early second-half goals, Muhlenberg reeled off four goals in a span of 5:42 to make the score 10-8 with 13:57 left.

Senior Steph Light scored her third goal of the game at the 5:27 mark to cut the deficit to one. The Mules had several chances down the stretch but could not put in the tying goal.

With her three goals, Light recorded her first career hat trick in her next-to-last game. Senior Courtney Tapkas scored four goals, and classmate Shannon Donohue had three assists, helping Muhlenberg set a new team record with 97 assists on the season.

Washington, ranked 10th in Division III, held Muhlenberg to two goals in the final 44 minutes and pulled away for an 11-5 victory.

The Mules (5-6, 2-4) were within 5-3 when senior James Robinson scored his second goal of the game, a man-up goal, with 14:05 left in the second quarter. Up to that point, Muhlenberg had played the Shoremen (11-2, 5-2) evenly in 6-on-6, but had allowed three extra-man goals.

Washington outscored the Mules 3-1 the rest of the second quarter and 3-1 in the second half to seal the win, which clinched a Centennial Conference playoff berth.

Junior Steven Toto scored his first career goal for Muhlenberg.
