WATERVILLE, Maine --- The Colby College women's soccer team kept third-ranked Williams College off the scoreboard for the first half and nearly 66 minutes of the game, but the Ephs scored three times in the final 24:02 to pull out a 3-0 victory on Saturday in New England Small College Athletic Conference play.

Williams, ranked first in New England Division III and the two-time defending NESCAC champs, moved to 7-0 overall and 3-0 in the conference. Colby falls to 1-3-1 overall and 0-2-1 in the league.

Sarah Walmsley (Pelham Manor, N.Y.) scored two goals, including the game-winning goal at 65:58 when she volleyed in a corner kick from Annelise Snyder (Ashby, Mass.). Walmsley then tallied at 70:02 when she touched in a cross from Tyler Rainer (Marlborough, Mass.).

On a play off a free kick, Sachi Siegelman (Piedmont, Calif.) got the final Williams goal off a pass from Chloe Kuh (Newton, Mass.).

Julia Schreiber (Cockeysville, Md.) stopped eight shots in goal for the Ephs, while Loni Pisani (Kanata, Canada) kept Colby in the game with 16 saves.
