WATERVILLE, Maine --- The Colby College men’s soccer team won the battle of Waterville as the Mules took a 6-1 non-conference win over Thomas College to keep the Elm City Bowl trophy for a 16th straight time.

The Mules (6-5-1) scored five times in the second half after Thomas (6-11) stayed in the game with a penalty kick to make it 2-1 with 31:30 left in regulation.

Colby’s Logan King (Hingham, Mass.) had his first goal of the season and the lone score of the first at 33:30 to put the Mules up for good.

Peter Randall (Medford, Mass.) tallied just 43 seconds into the second half off a pass from Andrew Cheit (Davis, Calif.). Randall connected on his shot to the lower right corner of the net.

The Terriers cut the lead to one goal at 58:30 when Tim Costa (Pelham, N.H.) got his 10th goal of the season on a penalty kick.

The Mules received a penalty kick of their own just 1:30 later and Cheit converted to put his team up again by two goals. Josh Lyvers (Harvard, Mass.), Matt Boyes-Watson (Cambridge, Mass.), and Peter Williams (Litchfield, Conn.) added goals in the final 15:15 of play to stretch the lead out. Lyvers scored his sixth goal of the season, while Boyes-Watson and Williams each notched their first collegiate scores.

Dan Marden (Londonderry, N.H.) stopped two shots in 75 minutes and Doug Sibor (Hingham, Mass.) made no stops in the final 15 minutes for Colby. Keegan Curtin (Durham, N.H.) made 16 saves for Thomas.
