Men’s Lax Nearly Comes Back
Men’s Tennis Loses in Finale

The Mules nearly came back from a three-goal fourth period deficit, but ended up falling to Ursinus, 11-10.

Muhlenberg (7-8, 0-7) trailed by three goals, 11-8, after Ursinus (3-9, 1-6) scored with just under eight minutes remaining in the game. The Mules battled back and freshman Mickey Norton’s goal with 4:12 left cut the lead to two. The goal gave Norton 42 points on the season, tying the team record.

Muhlenberg had some close-in shot opportunities, especially in the final two minutes, and finally capitalized when junior James Robinson netted his second goal of the game with 12.7 seconds to go. The Bears (3-9, 1-6) won the ensuing faceoff, however, and were able to run out the clock.

Senior Bradley Lutzer had three ground balls in his final home game. Lutzer is the first senior to pass through the Muhlenberg men’s lacrosse program since it was reinstated as a varsity sport in 2003.

Baseball Drowns Drew

Freshman Joe Carlo’s bases-clearing double in the bottom of the first stood up as the biggest hit as the Muhlenberg baseball team defeated Drew, 8-6, in its next-to-last home game of the season.

The win guaranteed the Mules (16-13), who close out with three games against regionally ranked Johns Hopkins and DeSales, a non-losing record.

Senior Aaron Regensburg pitched the first six innings to earn his 15th career win, with relief help from sophomore Jason Bonder. Regensburg is the sixth hurler in team history to win 15.

Muhlenberg jumped ahead early, scoring four runs in the first on four consecutive two-out hits. A run-scoring infield single by junior Matt Tobia was followed by hits off the bats of sophomore Mike Hart and junior James Petersen, loading the bases.

Carlo stepped in and quickly fell behind 0-2. After working the count to 3-2, he fouled off two straight pitches before lining a double to the left-field corner, bringing in three runs.

The Mules added single runs in the second, fourth and fifth to take a 7-1 lead, but the Rangers (12-17-1) scored twice in the sixth and once in the seventh, making the score 7-6. Bonder entered the game with the bases loaded in the seventh and retired the side, then worked a scoreless eighth and ninth to pick up his first career save.

Senior Matthew Long tripled in the eighth for his third hit of the game and scored an insurance run.
