The Mules (3-0-1) scored the goal 66 seconds into the second half when junior Cody Antonini collected a rebound of Danny Way’s saved shot and slammed it into the upper right corner of the net.

For the second straight game, the Muhlenberg women had to overcome an early deficit, as St. John Fisher scored just 1:31 after kickoff. The Cardinals eventually went up 2-0 early in the second half, but the Mules rallied to tie. Junior Meghan O’Grady scored the first goal in the 60th minute, and with just 1:28 left, freshman CJ Graetzer put in a corner kick from sophomore Jillian Moretto to knot the score.

It was the first career goal for Graetzer and the first career point for Moretto.

Although the Mules (0-1-2) owned a 24-14 edge in shots for the game, Fisher had the advantage in overtime, taking four shots, but junior Michele Toher made a pair of saves to preserve the draw.
