WATERVILLE, Maine --- The Colby College men's soccer team had one of the biggest wins in many years after Nick Aubin (Simsbury, Conn.) scored with just 35 seconds left in overtime to give the Mules a 2-1 victory over 19th-ranked Middlebury College on Saturday.

The Panthers were 7-0 overall, ranked third in New England, and had not allowed a goal all season before Saturday's game. Middlebury went 673 minutes and had outscored the opponent by a 26-0 margin when Aubin tallied with two minutes left to intermission. Matias Rodlauer (McLean, Va.) had a cross skim off his head to Aubin, who was there to knock it in the net.

Middlebury (7-1 overall, 3-1 NESCAC) had taken a 1-0 lead at 32:41 when Otis Pitney (Washington, D.C.) beat a defender on the right side and ripped a shot for the goal.

Aubin scored the biggest goal of his collegiate career when he headed home a cross from junior midfielder Jeremy Lachtrupp (Stowe, Vt.) in overtime.

Ben Joslin (Chicago, Ill.) made his second straight start in earning the victory with a pair of saves. Tim Cahill (South Glastonbury, Conn.) stopped one shot.
