LEWISTON, Maine—The Bates College women's soccer team held off Colby College through regulation, but the Mules scored 6:25 into the first overtime period to secure a 1-0 victory in a NESCAC match played on Russell Street Field Tuesday afternoon.
Colby (7-6-1, 3-6-1 NESCAC) was awarded a penalty kick in the 97th minute after a Bates foul in the box. Sarah Lofstrom sent her shot into the back of the net to clinch the win for the Mules.
Bates finishes its season with a 5-10 overall record and a 0-10 mark in NESCAC play. Bobcat seniors Olivia Amdur (Chicago, Ill.), Sarah Gutch (Gaithersburg, Md.), Anastasia Leff (Louisville, Ky.) and Cassidy McCarns (Brandford, Conn.) were playing the final match of their Bates soccer careers.
In the 89th minute, junior Riley Turcotte (Middletown, R.I.) drilled two shots towards the goal for Bates, but both attempts were blocked. Earlier in the second half, the Bobcats had one of their best scoring chances, when Amdur fired a shot on goal that was saved by the Colby keeper. The rebound bounced to sophomore So Kim (Thornhill, Ontario) whose shot sailed just wide. Kim also came inches away from scoring in the first half, when her header went off the post in the 28th minute.
