Mavs Lose ‘Stampede’ Title for First Time Since 2006

Colgate scored two crucial late period goals and defeated UNO 4-3, claiming the Mutual of Omaha Stampede Championship.  The first line combination of Terry Broadhurst, Brock Montpetit and Matt White produced multiple points for the second night in a row, but it wasn't enough for the Mavs who fell to 1-1, after beating Mercyhurst Friday night.


Hockey Regular Season Begins Friday

Last season UNO was picked to finish eighth and ninth in two preseason conference polls, partly because of their youth and inexperience.

The Mavs had never skated in the ultra-competitive WCHA, and 10 of the teams' 25 members were freshmen, new to the college game.  Experience in the WCHA won't be an issue this season.


Second half struggles

The UNO women's soccer team suffered big second halves by their opponents and dropped two matches in their weekend trip to Colorado.  After a scoreless first half on Friday and a 2-1 halftime lead on Sunday, the Mavs allowed seven total goals in the second halves of both games.


Volleyball Doubles Win Total at Lady Blues Classic

The UNO women's volleyball team came back from two Friday losses with a pair of wins Saturday, doubling their win total to four on the season.  The Mavs bounced back from two four-set losses with a five-set win and a sweep in their final match.


Hockey Opens with 4-1 Exhibition Win

It may not have been 6-1, but the chances were definitely there.  UNO hockey opened a second straight season with an exhibition against the University of British Columbia, this year winning 4-1.


Mavs disappoint in home finale

The UNO volleyball team played its final competitive home match of the season Tuesday night, losing in straight sets to South Dakota.  Before the match, the Mavs honored the personal and athletic achievements of their three seniors- Brittany Hanssen, Emily Myers and Angie Reicks.

That's where the good feelings ended.


National accepts St. Cloud, Western Michigan

Last Thursday, St. Cloud State University and Western Michigan University officially accepted invitations to join the National Collegiate Hockey Conference when the conference begins play in 2013-14.  St. Cloud State is the sixth member of the WCHA to make the move, while Western Michigan becomes the second team from the CCHA.


Women’s Soccer Falls to Future Conference Foe

The Mavs  only managed one late goal and fell 2-1 in a Saturday night matchup with future Summit League foe UMKC.  Taylor Bare had both goals for the Kangaroos, who won their first home game of the season and just their second game of the year.
