WATERVILLE, Maine -- Amherst College's Matt Rogers (Excelsior, MN) found the back of the net with just 49 seconds remaining in overtime to lift the Lord Jeffs past the Colby Mules in ECAC men's ice hockey action. The two teams battled fruitlessly through regulation until Rogers was able to convert a pass from teammates Paul Gozzo (Avon, CT) and Darce Swaggert (Wayzata, MN) and rip the puck past Colby's Jason Cherella (Onset, MA), sealing the 1-0 victory.
Colby next hosts the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts on Saturday, January 31 at 4:00 while Amherst will face off against the Bowdoin College Polar Bears at 3:00.
