Wendt’s first goal lifts Mavs to win

Heidi Wendt’s goal 33½ minutes into the game Wednesday was enough to secure Colorado Mesa’s second victory of the season, 1-0 over Angelo State University (Texas).

In the nonconference game played in Gunnison, the Mavericks dominated play, with 13 shots to the Rambelles’ eight.

Amanda Wenzel fed the ball to Wendt for her first goal of the season and the defense did the rest. Janelle Richmond-Buccola made five saves in the shutout. Mesa (2-2-1) begins Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference play at 1 p.m. on Sunday, facing Westminster College at Walker Field.
