Tyler Weiss scores in final second of OT in UNO hockey's win over Colorado College

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.
