Muhlenberg Clinches Matte Award
In conditions that ranged from sunny, to cloudy and windy, to raining, to sunny
The win, combined with the men’s golf result against Moravian, clinched the Matte Award for 2008-09 for Muhlenberg, which has a 10½-6½ lead in the all-sports standings with one contest remaining.
The Mules (4-8) close out their regular season at home against Ursinus on Saturday, needing a win and some help to earn a Centennial Conference playoff berth. They will go into that contest on the heels of a game in which they won by a comfortable margin and gave many players time on the field.
Nine different players scored goals, led by junior Paul Munday with three, and two others added assists. Sophomore Zachary Armstrong and freshman Greg Flasser each scored the first two goals of their careers, and junior Matthew Schroeder netted the first of his career.
Muhlenberg kept the Greyhounds (4-11) off the scoreboard until 7:16 remaining in the fourth quarter, by which time the score was 14-0. It was the first time since men’s lacrosse was reinstated in 2003 that the Mules held an opponent scoreless in the first half, let alone the first three quarters.
