Women’s soccer winning streak snapped with loss at Colby

WATERVILLE, Maine --- The University of Maine at Farmington women's soccer team's four-game winning streak was halted Tuesday with a 4-0 non-conference loss at Colby College.

Mules senior captain Emily Anderson had two goals and one assist in the win, while Carly Dee added the game-winning goal and one assist for the Mules, who improve to 2-4-0 overall.

Dee tapped in a centering pass from Anderson at 21:47 of the opening half to put Colby up for good.

Anderson scored the second goal just 3:28 later off a pass from Amelia Barnett. Anderson, with a number of players in front of the net, was able to score.

Anderson added the third Colby goal from in front on a ball that bounced around a few times in front of UMF's net. Dee's short pass to Anderson coming toward the goal was quickly deposited in the back of the net.

Grace Dickinson closed out the scoring at 67 minutes when she headed in a corner kick from Ruthie Hawley.

UMaine-Farmington (4-4-1) received five saves from Beth Lebel in the first half, while Amy Jones charted two saves in the final 45 minutes. Emily Brook played 75 minutes in net for the Mules and stopped five shots and teammate Ashley Conley saw her first action this year in the final 15 minutes and made two stops.

Colby outshot UMF, 27-10, and had 11 corner kicks to Farmington's none.

The Beavers return to North Atlantic Conference play this weekend when the face New England College on Saturday, Oct. 5, followed by a match at Colby-Sawyer College on Sunday, Oct. 6.
