DALLAS — The Misericordia University men’s soccer team fell to Dickinson, 4-0, on Sunday afternoon at Mangelsdorf Field.

Dickinson broke a scoreless tie with a pair of goals in a five-minute span midway through the first half to take a 2-0 halftime lead.

The Red Devils added a pair of second half goals to seal the win.

The Cougars, 1-1, will visit Gettysburg on Wednesday.


World record set at Pocono Downs

Beatgoeson Hanover rallied in the final strides to win the featured Preferred Trot on Saturday night at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs and set a world record for her age group.

The race carried a purse of $25,000.

Beatgoeson Hanover, a 5-year-old mare from the barn of Nifty Norman, left from post position No. 5 in a field of six as the 3-1 second choice. She led at the quarter, then ceded the lead to favorite DW’s NY Yank in the front stretch and worked the pocket. Real Babe made a powerful first-over move on the back stretch and cleared DW’s NY Yank in the stretch, but driver Tyler Buter alertly swung Beatgoeson Hanover wide in the stretch to beat Real Babe by three-quarters of a length.

With a winning time of 1:51:4, Beatgoeson Hanover, owned by Neven Botica, not only shattered her own track record for aged trotting mares of 1:52:1, a mark she shared with Brighten Up, but she also smashed the world record for that age group of 1:52, which was set by Premiere Steed in Finland in 2009.

Beatgoeson Hanover, winner of six races this season and 25 lifetime, pushed her career earnings of $1,073,080.
