WATERVILLE, Maine --- The shots were equal at 6-6 and the Colby College men's soccer team had a 5-2 advantage in the second half only to see Amherst College score once in each half on the way to a 2-0 victory in New England Small College Athletic Conference men's soccer Saturday.

Lennard Kovacs (Wolfersdorf, Germany) made two saves to earn the shutout for the Lord Jeffs (8-2 overall, 4-2 NESCAC).

Spencer Noon (Farmington, Conn.) had a one-timer off a pass from Chris Devine (Auburn, Mass.) at 16:48 of the first half to get the game-winning goal.

Colby (2-6-2, 1-5-1) battled hard and stayed in the game after trailing 1-0 at the break. The Mules had the 5-2 shot advantage in the final 45 minutes. However, the Lord Jeffs got an insurance goal when Matt Lewis (Wayland, Mass.) had a header off a corner kick from Chris Lerner (Canton, Mass.) with 6:20 to play in the game.

Dan Marden (Londonderry, N.H.) made two stops in net for the Mules.
