WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass —For 29 years, Mike Russo’s Williams College men's soccer team and Jon Anderson’s Babson team have clashed in an annual cross-state battle.   On Sunday, Anderson and his side prevailed one last time. In an upset, the unranked Beavers (6-1) got a 1-0 win against the No. 3 Ephs (3-1).
