WATERVILLE, Maine -- A sequence off a deep throw-in for Williams College gave the Ephs the lone score of the game in a 1-0 victory over Colby College in NESCAC men's soccer Saturday.

The Ephs (3-0 overall, 2-0 NESCAC) play at Bowdoin College at noon. The Mules (1-2 overall, 0-2 NESCAC) play host to Connecticut College at 2:30 p.m. Sunday. The new Colby Soccer Field and Bill Alfond Field will be dedicated at 10 a.m. Sunday.
 
Game highlights
* Colby had not given up a goal in the regular flow of play in the first two games. Tufts University scored its lone goal on a penalty kick, while Thomas College scored on an indirect kick.

Sisco-Tolomeo flicked the header to the right corner of the goal.
