Prior Leads Polar Bears to Wet Win at Colby

WATERVILLE, Maine - The Bowdoin College men's soccer team scored three times in the first half and cruised to a convincing 4-0 win under the lights at Colby on Monday. Bowdoin improves to 2-1-2 overall and 1-1-2 in the New England Small College Athletic Conference, while Colby is 3-3 overall and 1-3 in the league.

Just over 12 minutes into Monday's game, Tim Prior ripped a shot from about 20 yards out that skidded on the wet surface and got past Colby keeper John Gardner. The Polar Bears made it 2-0 when Prior headed in a corner kick from Sean Bishop (Danvers, Mass.) at 28:34. Less than six minutes later, Nick Powell one-timed a low centering pass from Prior for a 3-0 margin.

Ben Denton-Schneider scored Bowdoin's final goal. Daniel Chaffetz had a throw-in from the left side that was headed by Call Nichols to Denton-Schneider for the goal. Dan Hicks made two saves before giving way to Will Wise in the closing minutes.

Bowdoin will return to action this Saturday when they begin a three-game homestand with a match against Connecticut College.
