- MISSOURI (2) @ FORT WAYNE (6) - Saturday, October 25th

- The Missouri Mavericks dropped their second game of the season by a four point margin on Saturday night when they faced the offensive onslaught of the Fort Wayne Komets that sent them from the ice with a 6-2 loss.

- After trailing 3-0 for the first forty minutes of the game, the Mavericks broke onto the scoreboard with two quick goals in the third period to come within one of the Komets, but the momentum swung the opposite way just as quickly, with Fort Wayne racking up another 3 goals in the final half of the period to seal their 6-2 win.
