WATERVILLE, Maine --- Colby College and Wesleyan University scored goals just 20 seconds apart in the final three minutes of regulation as the teams battled to a 2-2 overtime tie in New England Small College Athletic Conference women's soccer Saturday.

Emily Moos (Wayzata, Minn.) scored with just 2:30 left in regulation off a pass from first-year midfielder Carly Dee (Wellesley, Mass.) to give the Mules (1-0-2 overall, 0-0-2 NESCAC) a 2-1 margin and the lead for the first time in the game. However, the Cardinals (0-1-2, 0-0-2) took the kickoff and 20 seconds later Dasha Battelle (Brookline, Mass.) tied the game off an assist from Laura Kurash (Voorhees, N.J.).

Wesleyan dominated the overtime periods and nearly scored the game-winning goal with about 30 seconds left, but the shot hit the upper part of the left post and deflected away.

A pair of unassisted goals had the game tied 1-1 at halftime. Kaylin Berger scored just 3:30 into play to put the Cardinals up 1-0, but Alex Yorke (Chicago, Ill.) had her first collegiate goal with about four minutes to play for the Mules.

Jayde Bennett (Lynn, Mass.) stopped 12 shots in net for Colby. Meanwhile, Clare Colton (Montclair, N.J.) had eight saves for Wesleyan.
