WATERVILLE — While heavy rain wiped out most of the action on fields and courses Wednesday, the Colby College women’s soccer team managed to get in a nonconference game with the University of Southern Maine at Harold Alfond Stadium.

The dismal weather had little to no effect on the Mules.

Laura Arnold scored two goals — both in the second half — and assisted on another as Colby blanked USM 3-0.

The Mules (3-3-1) owned a 19-1 edge in shots but led just 1-0 at the half on a goal Ally Ingraham.

Arnold scored her first goal of the game on a shot to the lower right corner of the goal with 50:58 left in regulation.

She scored her second of the game — and fourth of the season — about five minutes later

Ashley Conley needed to make just one save for Colby. Marissa Temple had seven saves for the Huskies.

Colby, which has allowed just one goal in its last three games, next plays at Middlebury on Saturday. Southern Maine heads to Plymouth State on Saturday.
