OMAHA, Neb. — The Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks extended its winning streak to four games with a 5-3 come-from-behind win over No. 19 Ferris State Sunday at the Qwest Center.
The Mavericks were behind 3-2 entering the final frame before Bill Thomas lit the lamp 20 seconds into the period for his second goal of the afternoon. Thomas also added a helper on Scott Parse’s game-winning goal at the 11:48 mark of the third stanza.
UNO’s Tomas Klempa added an insurance goal with 4:11 left to play to seal the victory.
Ferris State jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period on markers by Matt Verdone and Matt Stefanishion. Bill Thomas cut the lead in half right before the end of the period when he scored on a pretty pass in front of the net from Parse.
UNO’s Brandon Scero scored just 52 seconds into the middle period to tie the game at 2-2 before FSU’s Greg Rallo gave his team a 3-2 lead at the 15:58 mark of the second stanza.

The Mavericks hit the road for a pair of games at Michigan on Dec. 9-10 while the Bulldogs return home to play host to the Northern Michigan Wildcats on the same dates.
