WATERVILLE, Maine ­-- Bates College scored two goals in a span of 1:28 in the second half to turn a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 victory over Colby College in New England Small College Athletic Conference men’s soccer Saturday.

Bates (5-8-1, 1-7-1 NESCAC) led 1-0 at halftime on a goal by Dustin DeGregorio (Boxford, Mass.) midway through the half. Colby (6-6-2, 1-6-2) fought back with goals by Matt Shatkin at 57:35 and Jamie Waters at 73:09.

The Bobcats scored just 1:13 after Waters’ goal when Patrick Grater (Mystic, Conn.) tallied. Bates got the final goal just 1:28 later when Rob Friedlander (Hopkinton, N.H.) scored and the Bobcats held on from that point on for the victory.
