STANDISH, Maine --- Laura Williamson (Manchester, Conn.) earned sole possession of Colby College's all-time scoring list with one goal as the Mules took a 2-1 non-conference win over St. Joseph's College on Wednesday.

Williamson now has 42 goals and 13 assists for 97 career points with the Mules. She was tied at 95 points with Christine O'Donnell '03, who had 43 goals and nine assists in her career at Colby for 95 points. Williamson is now one goal away from tying O'Donnell's record for most goals in a career.

Williamson got her goal 10:06 into the first half when she knocked in a corner kick by Libba Cox (Guilford, Conn.). The Mules made it 2-0 when Katie McCabe (Watertown, Conn.), the New England Small College Athletic Conference leader in assists with six, scored her first goal of the season off another assist by Cox at 53:45.

St. Joseph's (6-4) made it interesting when Michelle Crisp tallied at 78:00 off a pass from Megan Willette.

Colby goalkeeper Liza Benson stopped four shots to keep the Mules unbeaten at 6-0-2 overall.

The Mules put that record on the line against Wesleyan University in a league game Saturday at 1:30 p.m.
