How It Happened:

• The Bullets had their own streak of dominating play in the first half with four straight shots midway through the period.

• Both teams finished the first half with six first half shots while York put five of those six shots on frame.

• The Bullets took control of the match coming out of the break. Gettysburg fired off four of the first five shots of the half. Spartan keeper Sydney Kahn was forced to make four saves during that 15 minute stretch.

• Gettysburg finally broke the scoring seal as Kahn tried to clear the ball only to have Molly O'Shea intercept the pass. O'Shea flicked a pass to Erika Muskus who finished off the chance in front of the net.
