WATERVILLE, Maine ­-- Logan King (Braintree, Mass.) and Scott Brown (Trumbull, Conn.) scored two goals less than one minute apart to help the Colby College men’s soccer team battle back from a 2-0 halftime deficit to earn a 2-2 tie with Tufts University in a season-opening New England Small College Athletic Conference game.

Greg O’Connell (Cohasset, Mass.) scored two goals in the first half for the Jumbos (0-0-1, 0-0-1 NESCAC). He had an unassisted goal at 19:26 of the first half and then scored at 40:15 off a pass from Dan Schoening (Kenmore, Wash.).

The Mules would not quit and cut the deficit in half when King tallied off a cross from Todd Boertzel (Mountain Lakes, N.J.) at 51:15. Brown then tied the game just 49 seconds later with an unassisted goal for Colby (0-0-1, 0-0-1).

Colby goalie Dan Marden (Londonderry, N.H.) and Tufts keeper David McKeon (Loudonville, N.Y.) were each credited with five saves.
