WATERVILLE, Maine --- Laura Williamson (Manchester, Conn.) had two goals and Katie McCabe (Watertown, Conn.) finished with three assists as the Colby College women's soccer team took a 4-0 non-conference win over University of Maine at Farmington on Wednesday in the Mules' home opener.

Colby (1-0-1) has not allowed a goal in its first two games heading into Saturday's 1:30 p.m. game against rival Bowdoin College in a big early New England Small College Athletic Conference contest.

Williamson scored her 35th collegiate goal at 20:46 of the first half off a crossing pass from McCabe. The same pair hooked up again with 13:09 left to halftime for a 2-0 lead for the Mules at the break.

Meggie Herlihy (Simsbury, Conn.) gave Colby a quick insurance goal just 3:15 into the second half off a pass from Liz Morbeck (Seattle, Wash.). The Mules closed out the scoring when Lauren Goethals (Needham, Mass.) tallied off McCabe's third assist.

Liza Benson (Orchid, Fla.), the ECAC Defensive Player of the Week and NESCAC Player of the Week after shutting out third-ranked Tufts University on Saturday, played 82 minutes in goal and made two saves.

Maine-Farmington (1-1) takes on a strong Wheaton College squad at 1 p.m. Saturday.
