LEWISTON, Maine -- Despite a goal and an assist from Madison Gregor, the Colby College field hockey team ended the season with a 3-2 overtime loss to Bates College on Saturday.

Samantha Rothkopf scored just 1:04 into overtime to give Bates (6-8, 2-7 NESCAC) the win. Colby ended the season at 4-10 and 1-8 in the league, but the Mules lost four conference overtime games and dropped six of their eight league losses by just one goal.
