WATERVILLE, Maine --- Meggie Herlihy (Simsbury, Conn.) scored two goals for Colby College and Brianna Wolfson (Brookline, N.Y.) tallied twice for Williams College as the two teams battled to a 2-2 overtime tie in New England Small College Athletic Conference women's soccer play Sunday.

Williams, ranked 20th in Division III, moved to 7-1-2 overall and 4-1-1 in the league. Colby is 6-1-3 overall and 2-1-3 in the conference.

Wolfson scored just 6:45 into the game off an assist from Ana Sani (Scarsdale, N.Y.), but the Mules fought back for a 2-1 halftime lead on two goals by Herlihy. She got the first at 27:31 of the first half and then put the Mules up with another goal about six minutes later off an assist from Katie McCabe (Watertown, Conn.). McCabe moved out of a tie with Meghan Fitzpatrick '94 for Colby's all-time assist record with her 19th career assist and her seventh this season.

Wolfson put the game into overtime with an unassisted goal with just 3:16 left in regulation.
