difference as the Muhlenberg women’s basketball team held on to defeat Susquehanna, 56-53.

The Crusaders (6-2) took a 25-20 lead at halftime and scored the first three points of the second half before the Mules (8-1), playing for the first time in a week, got their offense cranked up. Piscadlo’s three-pointer, followed by a foul shot and back-to-back layups by Courtney, tied the score.

Piscadlo broke the tie with two free throws, then hit another three-pointer. Senior Tiffany Kirk capped the 16-0 run with a three-pointer of her own.

After going “three-less” in the first half, Muhlenberg made its first six attempts from long range in the second half.

The Mules eventually built a 12-point lead, 45-33, on a Piscadlo layup with 11:12 left, but Susquehanna clawed back into the game.

The spread was six, 51-45, when freshman Lauren Boyle was fouled driving to the basket with 3:52 left. She made the first and missed the second, but classmate Bethany Enterline got an offensive rebound and putback to make the score 54-45.

The Crusaders scored the next eight points, the last on a breakaway layup with 13.9 seconds left, to close to within one. After Muhlenberg missed the front end of a one-and-one, Susquehanna was called for traveling with 7.0 ticks on the clock.

Kirk was fouled on the ensuing inbounds pass and made both free throws. The Crusaders had a chance to tie the game with a three, but a last-second attempt fell short.

Courtney finished with 14 points, eight rebounds and four steals, while Piscadlo scored 12. Kirk added 11 points.

Senior Lacie Smith pulled down eight rebounds to help the Mules to a 41-27 advantage on the boards.
