WATERVILLE, Maine --- Lindsay Davies (Greenwich, Conn.) scored two second-half goals to offset two scores by Colby College's Heather Quadir (Medfield, Mass.) as the Williams College field hockey team held on for a 4-3 win over the Mules at Bill Alfond Field on Saturday.

Williams is 3-2 overall and 3-0 in the conference, while the Mules are 3-2 overall and 1-2 in the conference. Colby has scored three goals in all three of its conference games, but have suffered two 4-3 losses.

The Ephs led 2-0 at halftime on goals by Lucy Rollins (Rye, N.Y.) at 11:48 and then Whitney Thayer (Lancaster, Pa.) off a penalty corner at 19:46.

Quadir scored just 25 seconds into the second half off an assist from Lucy Gerrity (Cumberland, Maine) to cut the margin in half.

Davies, though, tallied at 40:43 and 45:33 to make it 4-1. She got the second goal off the second assist on the day from Alice Bearn (Bethlehem, Pa.).

Quadir cut the lead in half again on an unassisted goal with 9:14 to play to give her seven goals on the season. The Mules tallied with just 1.4 seconds left on a penalty corner when Courtney Erskine (Turner, Maine) got her third goal.

Both goalies played well despite the amount of goals. Katrina Tulla (New Canaan, Conn.) made a number of fine stops in the second half when Colby put on a lot of pressure and finished with 12 saves. Meanwhile, Liz Fontaine (Wilbraham, Mass.) made 10 stops.
