WATERVILLE — Freshman Carly Dee made her first collegiate goal an important one.

Dee scored with 2:43 left in Tuesday’s nonconference game as the Mules took a 1-0 win over the University of New England in women’s soccer.

Late in the game, Colby’s Kate Pistel sent a cross a few yards in front of the net. Woodworth struggled to pick up the ball but it bounced free to Dee, who sent the ball into the open net.

Colby goalie Jayde Bennett moved her scoreless streak to 200 minutes and has not allowed a goal in her short collegiate career after making five stops.

The win improved Colby to 1-0-1 while UNE dropped to 3-1.
