For the third straight game, Muhlenberg entered halftime tied despite enjoying the advantage in play. The Mules outshot F&M, 6-2 in the first half.
Muhlenberg finally broke through in the 15th minute of the second half when Tenenzapf drew a foul near midfield. Junior Samuel Hayden took the free kick and left-footed the ball into the penalty area. Diplomat goalie Zach Zamek came out to challenge for the ball, but senior Brendan Carroll beat him to the ball, and his header had just enough juice to roll past the goal line.
Just 3:16 later, the Mules doubled their margin. Tenenzapf was grabbed by a defender as he streaked for a ball that was headed for the goal line, giving Muhlenberg a free kick to the left of the box. Cody Antonini’s kick to the far post was knocked away by F&M, but not cleared. Senior Billy Dalton collected the ball near the top of the box, on the right side, and sent a diagonal cross back to Antonini. The freshman lofted a shot over Zamek for his second goal in as many games.
The Mules finished the game with advantages of 13-5 in shots and 8-1 in corner kicks.
