WATERVILLE, Maine --- After 17 straight Elm City Bowl victories, the Colby College men's soccer team fell to Thomas College in two overtimes Tuesday at Thomas.

The Mules fall to 6-4-1 overall and end a four-game unbeaten streak. Thomas, with a revamped roster featuring 23 first-year students and a number of international players, improves to 6-4-2 overall. The Terriers had not beaten the Mules in the yearly battle for the Elm City Bowl trophy since 1992.

The game remained scoreless until Andrew Meisel tallied for the second straight game with just six minutes to play. Senior co-captain Nate Seiberling had the assist on the play.

The Terriers did not give up and tied the game with just 2:53 to play when Michael Hand tallied in the box off an assist from Nicholas Liakopoulos. Hand scored 3:17 into the second overtime period when he dribbled through midfield and placed a shot into the lower left corner of the net.

Ben Joslin had four saves in net for the Mules, while Mikkail Crockwell stopped five shots for Thomas.

Colby will play a key New England Small College Athletic Conference game at Amherst College on Saturday at 11 a.m.
