(Carlisle, Pa.) – The Dickinson field hockey team went the distance with visiting Muhlenberg, but suffered a heartbreaking setback, falling in strokes, 2-1, on Saturday afternoon.

The Mules capitalized on an early penalty corner, scoring just 1:28 into the match as Stephi Rydgren tipped in a shot from Emily Davis to give Muhlenberg an early lead.

The score would hold all the way into the 53rd minute when first-year Amanda Fruman (Owings Mills, Md./Garrison Forest) finished on a scramble in front of the cage to tie the match.

The teams played scoreless the remainder of the way and through a pair of overtime periods. The Mules survived as Morgan Tietz and Rydgren converted to keep the visitors unbeaten on Centennial Conference play.

The Red Devils dominated possession and outshot the Mules 25-12. Junior goalkeeper Jordan Segrave tallied 16 saves and received some help with two defensive saves as well.

Junior Heather Meeder (Baltimore, Md./Notre Dame Prep) was solid in the cage as well, making eight saves on the afternoon.

The Red Devils slip to 2-6 overall and 1-2 in the conference. They are off midweek before traveling to Ursinus College for a 12:00 pm start on Saturday.
