WATERVILLE, Maine --- After posting seven shutouts a year ago, the Colby College women's soccer team is up to five so far this season after taking a 4-0 win over University of Maine at Farmington in a steady rain on Wednesday.

Marissa Simmons (Chestnut Hill, Mass.) scored two goals and added one assist, while first-year forward Emily Anderson (Grafton, Mass.) scored her first collegiate goal.

The Mules move to 3-2-3 overall and will play host to Tufts University on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. Meanwhile, the Beavers fall to 4-5-1 and host Husson University on Saturday at 3:15 p.m.

Simmons scored her first goal at 19:36 in a play that started off a corner kick. The ball was knocked out to defender Kat McCarrick (Wellesley, Mass), who quickly pushed the ball through the middle to Simmons on the left side of the goal. Simmons made it 2-0 at intermission when she scored with 7:19 to play off an assist from Annie Papadellis (Hopkinton, Mass.).

Simmons picked up an easy assist when she found Kate Pistel (Amherst, Mass.) about 30 yards away from the goal. Pistel unloaded on a shot for her first goal of the season. The Mules closed out the scoring when Emily Anderson (Grafton, Mass.) had her first collegiate goal with 17:50 left in the game.

Senior goalkeeper Loni Pisani (Kanata, Canada), making her first appearance of the season after coming into the year with an injury, made four saves for the Colby shutout. Crystal Johnson (Cornville, Maine) also stopped four shots for UMF.
