The Missouri S&T Miners are coming off a big win on Sunday over the University of Missouri at St Louis in Rolla and an 0-2 loss to Lindenwood in St. Charles on Friday.

The Tritons led 2-1 going into halftime. S&T did the inverse in the second half as they ended regulation with a 3-3 tie. The first overtime went scoreless and Missouri S&T scored just one minute into the second overtime on a goal from Paal Benum to get a much needed win.
