WATERVILLE, Maine --- Scott Brown had three goals, while Andrew Meisel and Ben Desmond both had one goal and two assists as the Colby College men's soccer team won the middle game of three contests in a row with a 6-0 victory over University of Maine at Farmington on Sunday.

The Mules (3-6-2 overall) fell 2-0 to Amherst College on Saturday and will play host to Thomas College on Monday at 7 p.m. in the first night home game in the history of the program at Seaverns Field at Harold Alfond Stadium.

Brown scored goal two at 59:14 from Meisel to get the Mules off to a good start in the second half. He then got his hat trick just 1:29 later from Desmond. Josh Lyvers closed out the scoring about three minutes later from Aubin.

Dan Marden played about 53 minutes in goal and Doug Sibor played the rest in the Colby shutout. Erik Corcoran stopped 14 shots for UMF (7-5-2).
