WATERVILLE, Maine --- Todd Boertzel (Mountain Lakes, N.J.) had one goal and two assists and goalkeeper Dan Marden (Londonderry, N.H.) recorded his first collegiate shutout as the Colby College men's soccer team posted a 4-0 win over Trinity College in New England Small College Athletic Conference play Saturday.

The Mules improve to 2-1-1 overall and 1-1-1 in NESCAC play, while Trinity falls to 2-2 overall and 1-2 in the league.
