Women's soccer falls to Bantams, Camels

Emily Martin HARTFORD, Conn. -- The Colby College women's soccer team scored just 1:16 into the second half to get back in the game, but the Mules could not get another goal in a 3-1 loss to Trinity College in New England Small College Athletic Conference play Saturday.

Colby (2-4 overall, 0-4 NESCAC) also fell 3-0 at Connecticut College on Sunday.

The Mules trailed 3-0 at halftime to Trinity, yet had a chance to get back in the contest when Emily Martin scored off an assist from Laura Arnold.
"I was happy with our response coming out the second half," Colby head coach Kristin Shaw said. "It was a great goal. The grit was there. The energy and fight was there. We must be disciplined enough to begin games with that mindset. We will continue to learn, grow, and move forward in a positive direction." 
The Bantams had a 16-5 shot advantage and an 8-0 margin in corner kicks. Sam Rizzo made fives saves in goal for Colby. The Mules had all five of their shots on goal and forced Julia Pitino to make four saves.

Rizzo stopped seven shots in goal for Colby on Sunday against the Camels. 

The Mules will play at University of Southern Maine on Tuesday at 4 p.m. 

Camel junior Livi Block converted on a set piece in the 19th minute for what turned out to be the game-winning goal.

Colby trailed 2-0 at halftime after giving up an own goal off a cross from Alex Baltazar. Michelle Medina had the score in the second half for the Camels.

The Camels had a 14-4 shot advantage and goalkeeper Bryanna Montalvo stopped two shots.
