OMAHA, Neb. - 11th-rated Minnesota State scored four unanswered second-period goals in skating to a 4-2 victory over Nebraska Omaha in nonconference action Saturday in Omaha.
Nebraska Omaha owned a 2-0 lead after the first period of action on goals by Jake Randolph and Jake Guentzel.
The Mavericks turned the tide by scoring four unanswered goals in the second period. Junior Bryce Gervais tallied on a wrap around attempt at 4:01 to get things going. Senior defenseman Zach Palmquist scored at 11:40 to tied the game while Minnesota State was on a five-on-three power play. The Mavericks took the lead at 16:27 when freshman forward Brad McClure scored from in close and it became a 4-2 lead at 18:32 when senior forward Chase Grant backhanded a pass from Jordan Nelson past Kirk Thompson.
The two teams then battled through a scoreless third period.
Junior netminder Stephon Williams, who entered the game after UNO's second goal, stopped all ten shots he faced to get the win. The Mavericks owned a 34-14 advantage in shots on goal in the game.
Minnesota State, which stands 1-1-0 overall with tonight's loss, went one-for-four in power play chances. UNO were unsuccessful in six man-advantage opportunities.
The Mavericks continue nonconference action next weekend with a home-and-home series with Minnesota Duluth.
