For their second game of the season, the UTA Mavericks ice hockey team was hosted in Farmers Branch by the Dallas Baptist Patriots. Going into this week, DBU came in on fire with a 7 and 2 overall record, while UTA had dropped its only contest of the season so far to UNT. UTA came out strong with three goals, coming as a surprise to the Patriots. With multiple UTA players absent to either suspension or injury, the lack of depth on the bench was felt in the third period. Although the weekend might not have went as planned for the Mavs, they will have a week off to regroup before testing their luck against SMU on November 7th.
