Stefan Simmons

Thomas College, with two Bermudian freshmen in their line-up, reclaimed the Elm City Cup with a 2-1 win over local rivals Colby College in front of a lively crowd on Tuesday night.

Joshua Joseph

Joshua Joseph, a midfielder, and Stefan Simmons, a defender, played key roles in the win, with Simmons scoring the equalising goal in the 88th minute to send the game into extra time.

The Terriers came into the match not having beaten the Maine rivals since 2015. Jonathan LeClair, the Thomas College goalkeeper, made a couple of outstanding saves in the first half to keep the match scoreless at the interval.

Colby broke the deadlock early in the second half when Ethan Franco scored in the 54th minute. They carried that lead late into the game when a well-taken goal by Simmons levelled the scores with less than two minutes to go to send the match into extra time.

Both teams fought hard for the winner but it was Hayden Elwell who found the winner for Thomas College in the 109th minute with a shot into the top left corner off a set-piece.

The Terriers play their next game on Saturday when they travel to Northern Vermont University.
