WATERVILLE, Maine --- Nikki Pickering (Keene, N.H.) scored just 1:03 into the game to give Colby College an early goal on the way to a 5-0 victory over University of Southern Maine in non-conference women's soccer Wednesday.

The Mules move to 4-5-1 overall heading into Saturday's home game with Amherst College at 11:30 a.m. The Huskies drop to 2-11 overall and play host to Western Connecticut on Saturday at noon.

Pickering scored what proved to be the game-winning goal after Meg Edwards (East Brunswick, N.J.) broke free just a minute into the game. She found Pickering, who hit a low shot into the left corner of the net.

Edwards got a goal of her own about 17 minutes into the contest when she volleyed a cross from Leah Turino (Stoneham, Mass.) into the left corner of the goal.

Kate Pistel (Amherst, Mass.) got her first collegiate goal at 22:29 to give the Mules a 3-0 lead at halftime. She received a pass from Sam Merriweather (Los Altos, Calif.) on the left side, beat a defender, and scored to the left corner of the goal.

The Mules scored two goals in the final 11:14 of play to close out the scoring. Devin Cahill (Quincy, Mass.) scored her first collegiate goal off a cross from Meaghan Mooney (Wellesley, Mass.), who had her first collegiate assist. Kayla Kawalick (Farmington, Conn.) headed in a cross from Lexi Bohonnon (Madison, Conn.) with 6:30 to play for the final goal.
