Series History: Franklin & Marshall (5-7, 0-4 CC) enters the week looking to turn around a two-game slide and is set to host McDaniel on Thursday before traveling to Muhlenberg on Saturday.

McDaniel comes into the competition with a three-match winning streak over the Diplomats with F&M's last win coming in 2012. Muhlenberg has also captured the last three series contests and holds the overall lead at 19-4-2.

Last Week: The Diplomats fell in a pair of tightly-contested CC contests on the road last week, dropping a 1-0 match against Johns Hopkins on Wednesday before being edged by Haverford, 2-1 on Saturday.

Knotted at 0-0 in the 69th minute against Johns Hopkins, an Alyssa Morgan throw in for the Blue Jays found CC-leading goal scorer Meg Van de loo at the top of the box, who worked around a Diplomat defender and fired a shot into the lower corner of the net for the decisive 1-0 advantage.

In the 35th minute of a scoreless contest against Haverford, a well-placed Sarah Mischianti corner made its way into the middle of the box and found the foot of Sabrina Graziano, who tallied her first career goal with a shot to the bottom left of the net.

However, the Fords followed with a pair of second-half scores to hang on for the one-goal win. Nicole Savidge (4-5) was tested throughout and recorded an astounding 13 saves on the day.
