WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- Geoff Sullivan (pictured) scored with 1:32 left in regulation to help the 14th-ranked Colby College men's hockey team to a 3-3 overtime tie with Williams College on Saturday.
Williams had 39-16 shot advantage in the game, but first-year goaltender Andrew Tucci stopped 36 shots for the Mules.
With the Mules putting on pressure, Sullivan was able to fire off two consecutive shots from the right side. He scored his fifth of the season and finished with two goals in the game.
After a scoreless second period, the two teams combined for five goals in the final 20 minutes. Williams went up 2-1 with a pair of goals in the opening 6:44. C.J. Shugart scored on the power play at 1:49 and Roberto Cellini tallied to put his team up by one.
Colby will play two non-conference games next weekend. The Mules head to University of New England for a 7 p.m. game on Saturday and then play host to Fitchburg State on Sunday at 3 p.m.
