last two goals of the game. "It was our first conference game, so it was like a new season. We wanted to disregard the first five games and just forget what happened before."

It took a little while for Muhlenberg's fortunes to change. Against a team they hadn't lost to since 2003, the Mules only had a 6-4 advantage in shots in the first half, which ended without a score. It didn't help that Miller left the game with a broken finger in the fourth minute.

"It started off a little slow in the first half," she said. "In the second half it came together - we found feet and were able to get good scoring opportunities."

Muhlenberg outshot the Green Terror, 20-5, in the second 45 minutes and put the first goal on the board when freshman CJ Graetzer headed in a cross from sophomore Alyssa Meola 7:44 into the half.

Miller and her wrapped finger took care of putting the game out of reach, scoring twice in a span of less than four minutes for her fourth career multiple-goal game.

Junior Michele Toher recorded six saves for her 10th career shutout.
