WATERVILLE, Maine -- The Colby College men's soccer team took fifth-ranked Tufts University to overtime, but the Jumbos scored 2:14 into the extra session for a 1-0 win on Saturday in the NESCAC opener for both teams.
The Mules (1-1 overall, 0-1 NESCAC) played with the Jumbos the entire game. Tufts had a 21-10 shot advantage, but both goalkeepers were forced to make six saves.
Tufts scored the winning goal on a nice individual effort from Travis Van Brewer, who had the assist on the play. He made a quick turn on a defender and started dribbling hard to the center of the field. Meanwhile, Max Jacobs was making a cut along the 18-yard line and Van Brewer hit a hard pass that deflected off of Jacobs. With a defender on him, Jacobs went to his left and ripped a low shot into the right corner of the net past diving goalkeeper Dan Carlson.
Tufts, the defending NESCAC champions, received six saves from goalkeeper Conner Mieth. Carlson also had six stops in 92:14.
Asa Berolzheimer (pictured) had three of Colby's 10 shots, all of them on goal.
