A decisive victory on Oct. 2 at GateWay Community College gave MCC some momentum, seeing them finish 6-1.
That momentum was stifled somewhat in the game against Scottsdale, with both sides not conceding anything to the other throughout the 110 minutes on the field.  The standstill indicated by the score did not define the action between the teams, with many attempts on the two team’s goals being made, the constant threat of a deciding point was ever-present.  Both teams were unable to score before double overtime was concluded; the game was called with a score of 0-0.
