2004 Season Review:

The Muhlenberg women’s soccer team put together another winning season in 2004, going 10-6-2 overall, 6-3-1 in the Centennial Conference. The team also made its fourth straight trip to the CC playoffs.

The Mules started the season by defeating William Paterson and Kean to win their second consecutive Kean

Invitational Tournament. Muhlenberg then went on to capture four out of its first six CC contests, including a 2-1 victory in the CC opener against McDaniel, the only CC team to beat the Mules in 2003. But the team fell to Johns Hopkins, Gettysburg and Ursinus and tied Haverford to earn the fourth seed in the CC playoffs.

Muhlenberg got a home game with fifth-seeded Ursinus in the first round of the CC playoffs, just five days after falling to the Bears, 3-2, in a game that had no bearing on the standings. The second time around didn’t go any better for the Mules, as they suffered another one-goal loss in a very meaningful game. Ursinus scored with 6:01 left in the second half for a 1-0 win to advance to the CC semifinals.

Four players earned All-CC honors for Muhlenberg. Senior forward Rebecca Armstrong headlined the group, becoming just the fourth player in CC history to earn first-team honors all four years. Armstrong was also a

member of the All-Mid-Atlantic Region second team. She led the team in scoring with 17 points on eight goals and an assist. Armstrong finished her career as the ninth-leading scorer in CC history with an even 100 points on 40 goals and 20 assists.

Junior Amy Schmidt earned second-team recognition after scoring four goals in CC matches. The other two honorees, senior goalkeeper Stacey Spector and senior sweeper Maureen McLaughlin, received All-CC honorable mention. The duo was part of a defensive unit that allowed only 11 goals in 10 CC matches. Spector emerged as a starter for the first time in her career and led the CC in both goals-against average (0.66) and save percentage (.891).

The five-member senior class compiled an outstanding career record of 58-20-4 and won two CC championships.
