AMHERST, Mass. --- The Colby College men's soccer team was down to the final minute of the second overtime and seconds away from earning one point for a tie when Amherst College's Alejandro Sucre scored with 37 seconds left for key 1-0 NESCAC win on Saturday.
The two teams had come into the game tied for fourth place in the conference. Amherst moves to 7-1-3 overall and 3-1-3 in the conference, while the Mules fall to 6-5-1 overall and 3-4 in league play. In a new NESCAC point system format: wins are worth three points, ties are worth one point, and losses are no points.
Amherst dominated the game in statistics, with a 23-4 shot advantage and an 11-4 margin in corner kicks. Colby goalkeeper Ben Joslin, who made nine saves, and the defense of Ben Desmond, Matt Boyes-Watson, Nick Nowak, and Cory Hendrickson kept the Mules in the game.
Eight minutes into the first extra stanza, Andrew Meisel had Colby's first shot of extra time off a free kick. Nearly the entire second overtime was played in front of the Mules' goal, but it looked as though Colby would force the draw.
