WATERVILLE, Maine --- Ben Chwick (Purchase, N.Y.) scored two goals and assisted on the overtime goal by Nick Lanza (Rocky Hill, Conn.) in Colby College's 4-3 victory over Connecticut College in New England Small College Athletic Conference men's hockey Saturday at Alfond Rink.

The Mules end the first semester with a 4-3-2 overall record and a 2-3-1 league mark. Connecticut College, which pulled off a big victory over Bowdoin College on Friday, falls to 1-8 overall and 1-5 in the league.

With Connecticut College putting on plenty of pressure in Colby's zone in overtime, Chwick intercepted an errant pass and was on a 2-on-0 breakaway with Lanza. The two stormed in on Camel goalie Tom Conlin (Norwood, Mass.), with Chwick dishing to Lanza for the score.

Chwick continues to have a huge season for the Mules, leading the team in scoring with seven goals and six assists for 13 points. Lanza had his fifth goal of the year and also had his team-best seventh assist in the game.

Colby took a 2-0 lead after the first intermission. Jack Bartlett (Lynn, Mass.) scored his first of the season at 4:07 from Devin Albert (Greenwich, Conn.) and Ray Zeek (Wallingford, Conn.). Chwick made it 2-0 at 17:04 when he took a pass from Geoff Sullivan (Exeter, N.H.) for the score. Lanza had the other assist on the play.

The Camels immediately got back in the game just 19 seconds into the second period on the first collegiate goal for Ryan Mowery (Ranch Santa Fe, Calif.). JC Cangelosi (Estero, Fla.) had his sixth assist of the year and later added his seventh.

Chwick put the Mules up by two goals again at 3-1 at 2:53 from Robert McCormick (Laconia, N.H.), who had his first assist of the year. 

Cangelosi had his second assist of the day when he fed Keith Veronesi (S. Glastonbury, Conn.) at 10:40 of the second period. The Camels tied the game at 3-3 with 7:04 to play in the third on a goal by Mike Sinsigalli (Redding, Conn.) from Greg Liautaud (Butler, N.J.), who dished his fifth assist.

Sam Parker (Cambridge, Mass.) stopped 22 shots, including half of them in the first period, for Colby. Conlin made 27 stops for the Camels and had 17 in the first two periods.
