WATERVILLE, Maine --- The surging Colby College men's soccer team won for third straight time and are unbeaten in the last four contests after earning a 1-0 win over Tufts University on Saturday in NESCAC play.

After suffering a 4-0 loss at home to Bowdoin on Sept. 27, Colby has rebounded to a 3-0-1 record over the past four games in moving to 6-3-1 overall and 3-3 in the conference. The Mules moved into fourth place in the league with nine points.

Andrew Meisel (Newtown, Conn.) had the lone goal of the game just 8:50 into the first half. Colby defender Cory Hendrickson (Duxbury, Mass.) hit a ball to the left side where Meisel cut it in and beat Tufts keeper Alan Bernstein (Wayne, N.J.) to the far post.

Ben Joslin (Chicago, Ill.) remains unbeaten on the season in goal after taking over the starting job after the Bowdoin contest. He made five stops in earning his second shutout of the season.

Tufts (4-4-1 overall, 2-2-1 NESCAC) also received five stops from Bernstein.
