GORHAM, Maine --- Despite a huge 16-3 advantage in shots and a 7-2 margin in corner kicks, the Colby College women’s soccer team fell 2-1 in overtime to University of Southern Maine in non-conference play Wednesday.

Heidi DeHaan scored her second goal of the game at 97:30 on a shot that went off the goal post and in. DeHaan had given USM (4-7-1) a 1-0 lead at 29:44.

Colby (4-5) tied it at halftime when junior defender Hannah Holbrook scored her first collegiate goal on a shot from outside the box that went under goalkeeper Alison Bradley.

The Mules had a 12-1 shot advantage in the first half, but Bradley stopped six shots and USM made the lone shot count.

Colby will play host to Connecticut College at 11 a.m. Saturday. The New England Small College Athletic Conference game was originally set for a 1:30 p.m. start, but the time was changed after the Mules had to reschedule a game with Williams College for this Sunday.
