A pair of freshmen teamed up to put the Bears in front. Maryn Dempsey, who notched a hat trick in her first career game last week, gave Cal the lead for good with a goal with 1:03 left in the first extra period. Mallory Reynoso fired a shot into the goal with 46 seconds left in the second overtime to put the game out of reach.
Goalies Cassidy Ball and Isabel Williams combined to make 13 saves.
The Bears had to erase three three-goal deficits. They fell behind 3-0 and 4-1 before tying the game at 5-5 halftime. The Bulldogs scored four of the first five goals of the second half before Cal turned it around.
Mulder finished with three goals while Salvino and Reynoso had two.
The Bears scored early and often against Fresno Pacific, staking a 6-1 lead at the end of the first quarter and cruising in command the rest of the way. The 22 goals were Cal’s biggest scoring output since a 22-5 victory over Cal State Monterey Bay in its season-opener in 2016.
Junior Grace Raisin and freshmen Reagan Whitney and Juliette Zamoyski led the offensive onslaught with four goals apiece.
