This is Colby’s third straight win in the Elm City Bowl. The winner of the game between the two Waterville colleges keeps the bowl for the year until the next game.
After the two teams battled to a 1-1 tie in the first half, Tolman took a feed from junior midfielder Keith Chernin and scored at the 67:08 mark of the second half.
Colby took a 1-0 lead on an own goal by Thomas when a long throw in was headed by Tim Stanton toward the Thomas goal, where one of the Terriers tried to clear it and put it into the net at 43:00. Thomas struck back quickly, scoring just 16 seconds later when Paul Rechichi tapped in a shot that came off the left goal post. Joshua Phelps was credited with an assist.
