WATERVILLE, Maine -- Despite giving up three goals in the final 5:07 of regulation, the fifth-ranked Williams College field hockey team stayed unbeaten on the season with a wild 4-3 overtime win over Colby College in New England Small College Athletic Conference play Sunday.

Williams (10-0, 6-0 NESCAC) had allowed just three goals in its first 10 games of the season and led 2-0 when Colby's Chelsea Rosenheimer (Nashotah, Wisc.) scored off an assist from Kyla Wagman (Potmac, Md.) with 5:07 left in regulation. However, Williams answered back to make it 3-1 when Elspeth Macmillan (Portland, Ore.) tallied with just two minutes remaining.

Colby crept to within one goal again when Frazer Humes (Littleton, Colo.) scored with 46 seconds remaining. The Mules then got a penalty corner as time expired, but a game cannot end until the penalty corner is taken and the ball is cleared out of the circle. The Mules' Mary Clare Snediker (New Canaan, Conn.) scored off a scramble in front of the cage and the game went to overtime.

Colby (2-6, 1-5 NESCAC) and Williams both had good opportunities in the first 10 minutes of the overtime period. Meighan McGowan (Greenwich, Conn.) finally ended the game with a steal, some good stick work and a goal to give the Ephs the victory with 4:09 left in overtime.

Katherine Krieg (Milwaukee, Wisc.) and Carolina Jolly (Westchester, Pa.) had first half goals for Williams.

Emily Wasserman (Englewood, Colo.) made eight stops for Williams, while Jamie Enos (South Hamilton, Mass.) made 13 saves for the Mules.
