WATERVILLE, Maine --- Colby College scored on the power play with 4:10 to play in regulation, but Trinity College pulled its goaltender and scored with just 1:18 remaining to secure a 2-2 overtime tie in NESCAC men's hockey on Friday night at Alfond Rink.

Colby moves to 3-10-1 overall and 1-7-1 in conference play, while Trinity is now 6-3-3 overall and 3-1-3 in the NESCAC.

After a Trinity timeout at 18:33, the Bantams pulled goalie Benjamin Coulthard for an extra attacker. The move paid off just nine seconds later when Michael Flynn scored his first goal of the season on a shot from the point. Jackson Brewer and Jordan So added assists.

The Bantams took a 1-0 lead after one period on Chris Menard's sixth goal of the season from Jeffrey Menard and Jim Burt. The Mules tied the game in the second period when Lanza scored with just 1:37 to play from McGrath and Ben Chwick, who had his team-best ninth assist.
