  • The Mustangs made one last push with just under two minutes left in the third as the home squad was able to control the puck allowing for Morrisville to pull goal tender, Jared Young (Pueblo West, Colo.) for the extra skater.
  • Unfortunately, the final push was not enough as Morrisville fell 3-2. 


The Mustangs will wrap up their season tomorrow afternoon at 4 PM against Fredonia.  Following the contest, Morrisville will honor their four seniors in a special ceremony.
