With no love lost between them, New Mexico Highlands University and archrival Mesa State don’t need much reason to battle, but this time they did it with the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference tournament title on the line.

The Mavericks put the game out of reach with a five-run fifth inning, pinning the loss on Dylan Wisneski.
