BANGOR, Maine --- Colby College's 33rd shot of the game by Maddie Tight was the difference as the Mules dominated play only to be thwarted time after time by Husson University goalkeeper Jessica Poulin in a 1-0 overtime win on Wednesday night.
Colby, now 4-0 in road games this season, had a 33-0 shot advantage and a 7-0 margin in corner kicks. Poulin, though, made 17 saves in the game and stopped nearly half of those with eight saves in the opening 45 minutes of play.
Tight scored her third goal of the season at 107:14 off a pass from Emma Marjollet, who notched her second assist.
The Mules moved to 5-1 overall heading into Saturday's 11 a.m. home game with Trinity College. The Mules have an 11-3 scoring advantage over the opponent in the second half and overtime. The Mules also have taken 40 corner kicks this season and allowed the opponent to boot just nine.
Jayde Bennett earned her easiest shutout as a Mule by making no saves. She has allowed just one goal in 242 minutes of play this year. Colby's defense has given up just six goals in six games.
