CSU-Pueblo vs. Colorado School of Mines final score: ThunderWolves emerge with 35-21 comeback victory

Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The CSU-Pueblo ThunderWolves improved to 7-0 with a 35-21 victory over the Colorado School of Mines Orediggers on Saturday afternoon.

The Div. II No. 2 CSU-Pueblo ThunderWolves (7-0) escaped Golden, Colo., with a 35-21 victory over the Colorado School of Mines Orediggers (4-3) on Saturday afternoon. The two-score margin of victory is a bit misleading at first glance, as the Wolves scored 25 points in the third quarter after starting the second half in a 21-10 hole.

CSU-Pueblo quarterback Ross Dausin threw two of his three touchdowns in the third quarter, the first coming with 5:02 left on the clock and the other at the very end of the quarter. Tight end Roger Pfannenschmid and receiver Marcial Williamson wound up with receptions of 34 and 45 yards on those touchdowns. Dausin finished the game 17-of-24 for 257 yards.

However, it was 5'6 freshman running back Cameron McDondle who tore up the Orediggers defense -- to the tune of a CSU-Pueblo freshman-record 183 yards and one touchdown.

Colorado School of Mines opened up a 14-0 lead in the first quarter, but quarterback Matt Brown wasn't his usual explosive self, completing 25-of-49 passes for just 239 yards and three touchdowns. Receiver Cody Renken finished the game with seven catches for 128 yards.

CSU-Pueblo continues its season on Oct. 20 when it hosts Black Hills State (S.D.). Mines hosts Colorado Mesa next Saturday.
