WATERVILLE, Maine --- The Colby College men's soccer team, in a tough four-game stretch over eight days, fell 4-0 to Bowdoin College on a drizzly night at Harold Alfond Stadium on Monday night.

Tim Prior (Georgetown, Mass.) scored 12:10 into the game off a long blast and later added an assist for the Polar Bears.

Bowdoin improves to 2-1-2 overall and 1-1-2 in the New England Small College Athletic Conference, while Colby is 3-3 overall and 1-3 in the league.

Prior ripped a shot from about 20 yards out that skidded on the wet surface and got past Colby keeper John Gardner (Winter Haven, Fla.).

The Polar Bears made it 2-0 when Macgill Eldredge (Cumberland, Maine) headed in a corner kick from Sean Bishop (Danvers, Mass.) at 28:34. Less than six minutes later, Nick Powell (Enfield, N.H.) one-timed a low centering pass from Prior for a 3-0 margin.

Ben Denton-Schneider (San Rafael, Calif.) scored Bowdoin's final goal. Daniel Chaffetz (New York, N.Y.) had a throw-in from the left side that was headed by Call Nichols (Mill Valley, Calif.) to Denton-Schneider for the goal.

Dan Hicks (New York, N.Y.) played about 82 minutes and made two stops in goal for Bowdoin. Gardner had five saves and Ben Joslin (Chicago, Ill.) stopped one shot.
