WATERVILLE, Maine -- Todd Boertzel (Mountain Lakes, N.H.) scored with 15:40 left in the second half for the game-winning goal as the Colby College men's soccer team pulled away for a 4-2 non-conference victory over St. Joseph's College on Thursday.

Colby improved to 3-4-2 overall, while St. Joseph's fell to 5-7.
