and found me and I finally finished a goal,” said Toohill, whose lone goal of the game came on his 13th shot, of the game-winning possession. “I had a rough game shooting the ball, but my teammates picked me up.”

The Mules (6-2) improved to 5-0 in overtime games the last three years, including two overtime victories over the Mariners (2-4). Muhlenberg won last year at Kings Point in overtime, 8-7. The Mules also notched their sixth win, tying the team record for wins in a season set in 1974.

Before Toohill found the back of the net, both teams had opportunities to score in overtime. Junior Mike Tentindo won the opening faceoff of the extra session, but Muhlenberg lost the ball seconds later. Kings Point took possession, and Tentindo forced a turnover with 2:48 remaining when his check caused a Mariner attackman to stumble and lose the ball out of bounds.

On the ensuing possession, Muhlenberg had two golden scoring chances. Toohill was first stopped on a close-in shot, and junior John Westendorf hit the post on the rebound. Toohill grabbed the ground ball and Muhlenberg took a timeout with 2:06 remaining to set up the final score.

Tied at four early in the fourth period, sophomore Cliff Burwell came running from behind the net to fire one past the Kings Point goalie to give the Mules a 5-4 lead. It looked like Burwell’s score might hold up, but the Mariners netted the equalizer with 6:06 remaining in the fourth.

Senior Bradley Lutzer and sophomore Kyle Hart led a strong Muhlenberg defensive effort by recording six ground balls each. Junior Brian Schimaneck also had six ground balls and assisted on both of Westendorf’s goals.
