Christian Mulé made sure to keep goalies turning and raking this week.
The Team 91 2019 Orange attackman by way of Half Hollow Hills West shot a perfect 6-for-6 in Lehigh‘s 12-10 win over Binghamton to start the week. One of those six goals landed him at No. 6 on ESPN’s SportsCenter Top 10. Then, Mulé tallied twice as the Mountain Hawks doubled up rival Lafayette, 14-7, to cap a perfect week.
Mulé also chipped in an assist and a ground ball against the Bearcats before grabbing a pair of grounders in the win over the Leopards. ’18 Extreme Michael Gomez (Half Hollow Hills East) started on defense, supplying two ground balls and a caused turnover against Binghamton and then coming off the bench with three ground balls and two caused turnovers against Lafayette. ’18 Extreme All-Patriot League defenseman Anthony Tangredi (Chaminade) combined for a ground ball and caused turnover in the two games. ’19 Orange Nick Turrini (Calhoun) snagged a pair of ground balls against Binghamton.
’18 Extreme Max Verch (Syosset) dislodged a trio of turnovers for Binghamton while also collecting a pair of ground balls. ’21 Blaze Matt Keegan (Sachem North) dished out an assist to go with two ground balls and a caused turnover for the Bearcats, who also got a goal from ’20 Orange Trey Sofield (Long Beach).
