WOMEN’S LACROSSE
The Muhlenberg women’s lacrosse team dropped its Centennial Conference opener against Dickinson, 18-7. This is the first loss of the season for the Mules (5-1, 0-1), and it snaps a school record six-game winning streak.

A 4-0 start to the game for the Red Devils (3-3, 1-0), who have been nationally ranked this season, set the tone, and they controlled the pace the rest of the way. The Mules were unable to pull any closer than 5-3 midway through the first half.

Sophomore Sara Hiller led the Mules as she recorded a hat trick. Sophomore goalie Caroline Shadood made a season-high 16 saves in the loss.

Coming in between two huge conference games, and against a team it has handled well in the past, the Muhlenberg men’s lacrosse contest at Moravian had the potential to be a trap.

The Mules (4-1) kept their focus and took care of business, however, defeating the Greyhounds 15-6 to clinch a tie for the Matte Award for the 2006-07 year. Muhlenberg
Andrew Bell
Bell’s 22 saves were the most by a Mule goalie since men’s lacrosse was reinstated as a varsity sport in 2003.
holds a 9-3 lead in the Matte standings with six sports left to play.

Senior Sean Toohill, junior Kyle Farris and freshman Ivan Asplundh all recorded hat tricks for the Mules, who lost to nationally ranked Washington last Sunday and host nationally ranked Gettysburg in their first home game this Saturday. Asplundh, who entered the game without a goal, scored all three of his in a six-minute span of the second period, helping Muhlenberg extend its lead from 5-2 to 9-2.

Freshman Andrew Bell had a sensational game in goal, making 22 saves.

Enjoying a big lead most of the way in their final non-conference game of the season, the Mules gave plenty of their players game experience. Of the 37 players to take the field, 11 scored at least one point and 20 recorded at least one ground ball.

Junior Tim Dwyre led Muhlenberg with six ground balls, and sophomore John DeLuca picked up five.

Toohill’s four points moved him into a tie for second place on the program’s all-time scoring list with 93 career points.
