Just like the first half, the second featured only and early goal, and the teams went into overtime. Junior Michele Toher made three of her 11 saves in the overtime periods, including one while falling back in the first extra 10 minutes. But with 3:53 left in the second overtime, Muhlenberg was called for a foul in the box, and Ursinus converted the penalty kick to win.
All three of the Mules' CC losses are by one goal on the road, two in double overtime.
The loss left Muhlenberg in a four-way tie for third place in the CC with one game remaining in the regular season. The Mules can clinch a playoff berth by winning at Gettysburg on Saturday and would probably get in with a tie, unless nationally ranked Johns Hopkins loses to either McDaniel or Ursinus in its final two games.
