Colby jumped out to a 6-1 lead in the first set, but Hamilton rallied to tie the score at 15. The Mules then scored six of the next seven points and went on to win by seven. In the second set, Colby led 7-3 early and cruised to another seven-point win.

The Continentals rallied in the third set thanks in part to an attack percentage of .296. Hamilton led 13-9, but the Mules came back to tie the score at 18. The Continentals rattled off the next three points and won by five. In the fourth and final set, Colby held a slim 11-9 lead, but scored the next three points to give itself some breathing room. Hamilton never recovered and the Mules won by six points.
The Continentals finish out their season on Saturday, Oct. 31, when they host Bates College for another NESCAC match at 11 a.m.
