WATERVILLE, Maine --- The Colby College men's hockey team scored first, but Hamilton College put up the final two goals of the game in taking an important 2-1 win over the Mules in New England Small College Athletic Conference play Friday night at Alfond Rink.

Brandon Broad (West Seneca, N.Y.) scored the game-winning goal with 7:08 to play and had an assist on the other goal to power Hamilton.

The Continentals move to 11-6-2 overall and 8-5-1 in the league in taking over sixth place and dropping the Mules (10-5-3, 6-5-3) to seventh in the league.

The Mules got on the scoreboard first when first-year player Nick Kondiles (Lake Forest, Ill.) scored his seventh goal of the season off assists from captain Matt Strickland (Leduc, Alberta) and Cory McGrath (Yarmouthport, Mass.) eight minutes into the opening period.

Hamilton tied the game with 4:04 left in the opening period on the power play when Broad assisted on a goal by Joe Houk (Richboro, Pa.).

Anthony Ruberto (Stoney Creek, Ontario) assisted on Broad's goal in the third period.
