The Bullets (1-3, 1-1) came in allowing more than 500 yards per game
Despite allowing 270 yards in the first 30 minutes, the Muhlenberg defense held the high-scoring Bullets to three first-half points. Gettysburg drove inside the Muhlenberg 5-yard line on its first two possessions, but the defense stiffened around the goal line and forced two field goal attempts, one of which failed.
The Mules came back after the made field goal with their lone scoring drive, using a 24-yard completion from freshman Justin Kreamer to senior Phil Cresta to move into Bullet territory. Junior Michael Katz kicked a career-best 45-yard field goal with 1:35 left in the first quarter to tie the score. Katz’ previous best, 42 yards, also came in difficult rainy conditions at home vs. Franklin & Marshall last year.
Gettysburg finally scored the first touchdown of the game midway through the third quarter and added 10 points in the fourth.
Cresta caught a career-high nine passes for 131 yards. Freshman Terrence Dandridge rushed 23 times for 93 yards.
