WATERVILLE, Maine --- Amy Campbell (North Andover, Mass.) scored with just 1:33 left in the opening overtime session as the Colby College field hockey team took a key 2-1 victory over Connecticut College at Bill Alfond Field.

The Mules move to 5-6 overall and 2-4 in the New England Small College Athletic Conference heading into Sunday’s noon game with Williams College.
