men’s lax, baseball lose playoff games
The Bullets, who have won the tournament in the last four seasons and currently rank third in the nation, advance to the final game against Washington on Sunday.
After a scoreless first five minutes, Gettysburg scored at the 9:25 and 8:03 marks to take a 2-0 lead. Penalties then came into play, as the Bullets netted a goal with each team down a man, followed by three man-up goals, to extend their margin to a commanding 6-0 early in the second quarter.
The goals for the Mules were scored by seniors Kyle Farris and Mickey Norton and junior Nick Fletcher. Norton and Farris finished their careers as Muhlenberg’s leading scorers with 123 and 120 points, respectively.
With the loss, the Mules conclude the best campaign ever in school history, which saw the team set a record for most wins in a season (10), most victories in the league (five) and longest winning streak (eight).
