CMU Mavericks Suffer Homecoming Loss to Colorado Mines

(Zane Mathews)

The CMU Mavericks lost to Colorado School of  Mines 27-10 on Saturday – but the final score is very misleading. The Mavericks were leading 3-0 going into the fourth quarter, but over 4300 fans at Stocker Stadium watched the Orediggers spoil the Mavs’ homecoming.

The Mavericks defense was outstanding. Really! Four times in the first half they stopped Mines on fourth down and forced four turnovers in the game. But, they gave two long pass plays that set up short touchdown runs for Mines. That was essentially the game.

The Mavericks offense had opportunities in the first half, but suffered a blocked field goal, a missed field goal, and an interception inside the Mines’ five yard line. In the second half, the offense didn’t threaten to score until the final seconds when Nate Neville caught a short touchdown pass from Aric Kaiser.

The Mavericks have their four-game winning streak snapped and drop to 5-3 overall, and 4-2 in conference play. They’ll travel to Pueblo on Saturday to face conference leader and nationally ranked CSU Pueblo.
