M. Soccer suffers 1-0 loss to Hamilton

The struggling men’s soccer team travelled to Hamilton College this past weekend in an effort to pick up its second New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) victory of the season.  Despite a back-and-forth effort, the Mules ended up on the wrong side of the 1-0 game.

The lone goal of the game came when Colby was called for a hand ball in the penalty area during a corner kick in the first half.  A Hamilton player was awarded a penalty kick and capitalized on his opportunity to put the Colonials on top 1-0. 

Colby’s best attempt at tying the game came in the 88th minute  A loose ball bounced right in front of defender Cam Clouse’s ’19 feet, but his shot barely missed the mark as it sailed past the right post.  Besides Clouse, Jeff Rosenberg ’19, Chandler Smith ’18, and Brandon Fahlberg ’17 each had shots.  Goalkeeper John Pappas ’18 made four saves in the loss.

The loss gave Hamilton its second NESCAC victory of the year and ended their season at 6-9 overall and 2-8 in league play.  The Mules on the other hand, dropped to 3-8-3 overall while sporting a 1-6-2 NESCAC record.  Colby has one more game in the season, and play host to the Bobcats of Bates College on Harold Alfond Field at 8 p.m. on Halloween.
