WATERVILLE, Maine ­--- Mary Clare Snediker (New Canaan, Conn.) scored both of Colby College’s goals and made one of the Mules’ three penalty strokes to help in a 3-2 win over Bates College in New England Small College Athletic Conference field hockey at Bill Alfond Field on Saturday.

Colby, which finishes its season at 5-9 overall and 2-7 in the NESCAC, had a 3-0 margin in the penalty stroke shootout after playing two periods of overtime. Snediker, MaryClaire McGovern (Stowe, Vt.), and Frazer Humes (Greenwood Village, Colo.) all converted in the shootout.

Snediker, who now has 26 career goals heading into her senior season next year, scored 5:40 into the game off an assist from Amy Campbell (North Andover, Mass.). She added her second goal with 16:51 to halftime off a pass from McGovern, who had a big game in her final collegiate contest.

Bates cut the lead in half with 26:38 left in regulation when Abby Childs (Philadelphia, Pa.) tallied off a pass from Samantha Rothkopf (Chicago, Ill.). Rothkopf then tied the game with just 8:42 remaining in the second half off an assist from Caitlin Tamposi (Temple, N.H.).
