Colby made it a 1-1 game at halftime when captain Ryan Boccuzzi (Storrs,Conn.) scored off a direct kick in the 42nd minute.

Kellen Florio (Gilford, N.H.) put the Panthers up 2-1 with a goal about nine minutes into the second half off a pass from Matt Haddad (Longmeadow, Mass.).

Hankin tallied about five minutes later off a pass from Daniel Kiernan (Brookline, Mass.).

Brian Davidson (Needham, Mass.) was credited with seven stops for Colby (2-2-2, 1-2-1 NESCAC), while Craig Hirsh (Verona, N.J.) made six saves for the Panthers.
