The Mules, now 4-5 overall, went ahead 2-0 on goals by Dewhirst and took that lead into the third period. Salve Regina tied the game at 2-2 in the first five minutes of the final period on two power play goals, but Fischer scored at 12:54 on the power play off a pass from Dewhirst.
Dewhirst is up to two goals and three assists on the season in her first year with the Mules. Fischer has three goals and one assist.
