Soccer Notebook

A look around the Conference as we reach the halfway pole ...

The Dickinson men ended Johns Hopkins' 53-match Centennial home winning streak with a 2-1 triumph at Homewood Field last Saturday ... Paul Coyle (Kensington, MD / Georgetown Prep) and Tom Parkinson (Westfield, NJ / Westfield) scored goals for the Red Devils ... it was JHU's first CC loss at home since Oct. 7, 1995, and just the second Centennial home defeat in program history ... Franklin & Marshall seized the opportunity to take over first place with a 1-0 triumph vs. McDaniel ... the Diplomats are 12-0 and one of five unbeatens in Division III men's soccer - Trinity (Texas), North Carolina Wesleyan, Stevens, and Amherst ... Muhlenberg improved to 19-0-2 all-time against Washington with a 3-0 win at Chestertown ... Gettysburg scored twice in the final eight minutes to force overtime and got the game-winner from Bobby Moore (Harpswell, ME / Hyde School) in the 98th minute to defeat Haverford, 3-2 ... Games to Watch This Week: Tuesday - Elizabethtown at Franklin & Marshall; Saturday - Franklin & Marshall at Swarthmore.

The women's race is as clear as mud right now with five teams with one or fewer losses ... Ursinus remains atop the standings at 4-0-1 (13 pts) with Swarthmore (12) and Johns Hopkins (12) a point back ... Muhlenberg (10) and Haverford (7) have played one fewer game than the leaders, while Franklin & Marshall (9) is in the hunt as well ... the Bears and the Fords battled to a scoreless draw last Wednesday ... it was a big week for Hopkins as the Jays edged Swarthmore and Gettysburg by 1-0 counts in overtime ... Allie Zazzali (Scotch Plains, NJ / Scotch Plains-Fanwood) and Jane O'Connor (Pittsgrove, NJ / Arthur P. Schalick) scored the golden goals ... Muhlenberg improved to 10-0 all-time against Washington with a 5-0 win - the Mules' biggest road shutout since 1994 ... Haverford lost to #2 Messiah, 5-1, but ended the Falcons' scoreless streak at 564:06 ... Dickinson's Sarah Casey (Severna Park, MD / Archbishop Spalding) had a hat trick in the win at Juniata ... Games to Watch: Wednesday - Swarthmore at Muhlenberg; Saturday - Muhlenberg at Johns Hopkins.
