WATERVILLE, Maine --- Kate Pistel (Amherst, Mass.) scored the biggest goal of her young collegiate career on a breakaway in overtime to lead the Colby College women's soccer team to a 1-0 non-conference victory over Husson University on Tuesday.

Pistel scored at 93:04 after taking a pass from All-NESCAC defender Su-Lin Del Guercio. Pistel broke in alone on goal and calmly pushed the ball past Husson goalkeeper Jen Plourde (Howland, Maine) as she came out hard to cut off the angle.
