Mullen extended her team's advantage in the 60th minute (59:39) when she blasted a shot from the top of the penalty area into the goal. Her score followed a pass from Calamari.

UW-Oshkosh (2-2) sliced its deficit in half when Alexis Brewer recorded her first collegiate goal off a deflected ball with 1:07 (88:53) remaining. Christina Mauthe and Rylee Engelland were credited with assists on the score.

The University of Chicago, which has won all four of its meetings with UW-Oshkosh, posted advantages of 25-7 in shots, 10-5 in shots on goal and 11-3 in corner kicks.

Alek Kleis and Megan Paulick led UW-Oshkosh with two shots apiece. Mullen, Jenna McKinney and Kaitlin Price paced the Maroons with four shots each.

Goalkeeper Piper Mik saved four shots to preserve the win for the University of Chicago. Nina Muzi guarded the UW-Oshkosh goal and stopped seven shots. The Titans also tallied a team save.
