What We're Reading on a Sunday Morning (11/9)

Mules Take Centennial Title
"The last thing Brandon Doyle, Phil Cresta, and Erik Snyder expected was
to spend their Senior Day at Muhlenberg standing on the sidelines. Yet
the trio, each a multi-year starter, did just that Saturday afternoon --
Doyle for the entire game against Ursinus with a dislocated thumb
suffered in practice, the other two after suffering first-quarter
injuries. Cresta's injury, to his right ankle on a punt return, gave
another senior, Edward DeRisi, a chance in the spotlight. And DeRisi
responded with a career game, catching six passes for 113 yards and a
touchdown in a 45-8 Mules romp that gives them their second straight
outright Centennial Conference title and an NCAA Division III playoff

F&M Falls a Point Short
"The PAT is often times overlooked in a football game. But
recent struggles converting that extra-point opportunity came back to
haunt Franklin & Marshall Saturday afternoon. Not only did the Diplomats
miss one for the fifth game in a row, it was their fear of missing
another that forced them to try a pair of two-point conversions in the
fourth quarter, including one with 29 seconds left when they trailed by
a lone point."

Mistakes Catch Up to McDaniel in Loss
"The McDaniel defense had been stifling. The offense had
been threatening. And then everything changed once the third quarter
began. Turnovers, bad decisions and a defense that could no longer hold
on against the league's best offense turned a promising homecoming game
into a 38-9 Gettysburg rout on Saturday at Scott S. Bair Stadium."

Eagles Lose Final Game for Exiting Coach
"Emotions ran high after Dickinson handed Juniata a 53-41
Centennial Conference setback at Knox Stadium, Saturday afternoon in the
Eagles' season finale. It wasn't because of the loss, but for two other
factors - it was senior day and it the last game for head coach Darrell
Alt, who announced his resignation after five years on Friday."
- Altoona Mirror

Rout Gives the Mules a League Crown
"John DeLuca rushed for 202 yards and three touchdowns as Muhlenberg clinched the Centennial Conference championship with a 45-8 rout of Ursinus yesterday in Allentown."
- Philadelphia Inquirer

Back-to-Back Titles for Muhlenberg
"Marc Bigelli must be getting used to winning by now. The 2007 Phillipsburg High School graduate entered Muhlenberg College with three Skyland Conference Delaware East Division championships and an NJSIAA North 2 Group 3 title to his credit. The sophomore guard has continued to pile up victories at the college level."
