WATERVILLE, Maine --- Despite taking a 1-0 lead on a goal by Colby College's Carly Dee (Wellesley, Mass.), Katelyn Driscoll (Peabody, Mass.) scored 8:48 into the second half for what proved to be the game-winning goal as Connecticut College held on for an important 2-1 win over the Mules in NESCAC women's soccer Saturday.

The Camels move to 5-4-3 overall and 1-4-3 in league play while staying alive for a NESCAC playoff spot. Colby drops to 4-6-3 overall and 0-5-3 in the conference and is eliminated for a chance at a league playoff spot. Ironically, the Mules could help Connecticut College's chances for a playoff spot by taking a home win over Bates College next Friday at 3 p.m. in the regular season finale.

First-year midfielder Dee scored unassisted with 6:14 left to play in the first half. However, the Camels tied the game at 1-1 with 4:19 to play to intermission on a 25-yard shot by Kate Wegener (Brockton, Mass.).

Camel goalie Kirsten Manville (Fairfax, Va.) and Colby keeper Loni Pisani (Kanata, Canada) each made five saves.
