Warriors Cooled by Mavs

Sophomore Mark Nebus notched a goal
and assist at UNO on Friday night

The Wayne State Warriors (12-12-2, 5-5-2 CHA) slide continued over the weekend as they were swept by the CCHA’s Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks.

The pair of losses at the Omaha Civic Auditorium gives the Green and Gold a season-high three game losing streak and four defeats in their last five games.

Wayne State put out a strong effort in Friday’s opener and out shot the Mavs by a 34-29 margin, but still fell short by a fianl score of 3-2.

Mark Nebus had a hand in both Warrior goals; assisting on John May’s opener and scoring his own on the power-play with less than two minutes to go in the contest. Will Hooper earned the start in net and stopped 26 of 29 shots.

The Mavericks continued their momentum on Saturday as they stampeded past the Warriors, 4-2. The pair of wins gives the Mavs a solid 6-1-1 mark since the start of the New Year.

Nate Higgins and Adam Krug both scored and Matt Kelly made 35 saves, but it wasn’t enough as the Warriors dropped their third road game in a row.

As victims of the road sweep in Omaha, the Warriors finish the season with a 7-7-0 record in non-conference games.

Next up for the Warriors is a trip to Minnesota for a pair of games against the conference leading Bemidji State Beavers on Friday and Saturday night.
