Colorado Mesa University was looking to get back on the right track on Friday night against CSU-Pueblo. However, the Thunderwolves had other ideas. CSU-Pueblo came into Walker Field and stunned the Mavericks in overtime 1-0.

Throughout the game, the two teams played it almost evenly. The Mavericks collected 11 shots to the Thunderwolves 10, on the night. CMU finished with seven of those shots coming on goal while CSU-Pueblo finished with six. However, neither team could find the back of the net during regulation.
