Melissa Eicken
Senior Melissa Eicken assisted on the game-winning goal against Delaware Valley.
Freshman Kristen Bruschi’s team-leading fourth goal of the season, in the final minute of the first half, turned out to be the game-winner as Muhlenberg (3-5) came back to defeat Delaware Valley (4-5) in a non-league field hockey game.

The Mules scored four unanswered goals after the Aggies took a 1-0 lead with 12:18 left in the half. Junior Laura Diez got the ball rolling with her first goal of the season at the 5:20 mark.

Bruschi’s goal gave Muhlenberg the lead for good. The score was 2-1 for most of the second half, but the Mules put the game away late by scoring twice off of penalty corners 49 seconds apart.

Junior Holly Pico and senior Sarah Stitzer both scored for the second straight game. Pico added an assist.
