women’s lacrosse, softball bounce back
Two days after a disappointing 20-4 loss to Gettysburg, the Mules came back to knock off Gwynedd-Mercy, 18-6, in the last of their two games in Florida.
“We really changed it from the last game,” said junior co-captain Marguerite Farrell, who recorded four ground balls. “Today’s game we connected better all over the field.”
The defense in particular was well-connected, keeping the Griffins off the scoreboard for more than 23 minutes. Ahead only 5-3 with 9:52 left in the first half, Muhlenberg reeled off the next nine goals, including two in the final minute of the first half, to break the game open.
Three players – senior Taylor Armstrong, junior Ruth Morrongiello and freshman Rachael Goldstein – notched hat tricks, with Armstrong adding a pair of assists. Sophomore Amanda McGovern also scored five points, on two goals and three assists.
