BANGOR, Maine --- Three Colby College players scored their first collegiate goals and midfielder Andrew Meisel dished three assists in leading the Mules to a 6-2 non-conference men's soccer victory over Husson University on Tuesday.

The Mules move to 3-1 overall heading into Saturday's noon game at Williams College.

Nate Tolman had a pair of goals and joined newcomers Matias Rodlauer and Chris Roccotagliata in scoring their first collegiate goals.

The Mules made it 1-0 at 14:20 of the first half on an own goal by Husson (1-4). Colby put up a second goal just 1:37 later when Nick Aubin tallied off an assist from Peter Randall. Tolman closed out the first half scoring with just 1:49 to play off the first of three assists from Meisel.

Husson managed to creep back in the game at 64:53 on a goal by Abdijabar Hersi, but the Mules went up again by three goals just 1:03 later when Rodlauer scored from Donny MacMaster. Tolman put the Mules up 5-1 at 78:53 from assists by Meisel and Rodlauer. After a Husson goal at 80:17, Roccotagliata closed out the scoring with 5:31 to play from Meisel.

John Gardner played about 56 minutes in goal for Colby and made two saves without allowing a goal before Ben Joslin went the rest of the way. Gardner has allowed just one goal in four games and has a 0.28 goals against average.
