COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Tyler Weiss scored with one second left in overtime Tuesday night as UNO defeated Colorado College 3-2.
The Mavericks had taken a 1-0 lead early in the second period when Weiss scored his first of the game. The Tigers tied it less than three minutes later when Ben Copeland put a shot past Mavs’ goalie Austin Roden.
Team captain Kevin Conley put UNO back on top with 12 minutes left in the game but Colorado College once again tied it on a goal by former Omaha Lancer Logan Will.
The Mavs had time for one final rush up the ice before the end of the five-minute overtime and Weiss scored on the backhand. The goal survived an official review that showed it came just before the final buzzer.
The Tigers outshot the Mavs 36-19 as Roden made 34 saves in the UNO net.
UNO returns to action Saturday, starting a two-game series at home against Denver.
