OMAHA, NE. - The Sioux City Musketeers made the trip to Ralston Arena coming off an electric comeback win over the Sioux Falls Stampede the night before. And they surely brought that same energy to Omaha.
The first period was once again, a slower start for the Lancers, resulting in a quick unassisted goal by Charlie Schoen to put the Musketeers up 1-0 just a minute and a half in.
Just over the halfway point in the period, Garrett Wright pulled through again after scoring last night, and scoring the game winning shootout goal to win, by burying a feed from Jared Wright and Michael Cameron. That goal tied the game 1-1, which was the score at the end of the first period.
The second period started with the first penalty of the game as Cade Ahrenholz caught Nick Pierre high with his stick. The Power-play of the Musketeers was easily shutdown, but it still took two minutes of the game away for Omaha.
The only other thing the second period brought was a go ahead goal for Sioux City as they took the 2-1 lead thanks to a goal from Ben Doran.
The final period started hot once again with the Musketeers taking the 3-1 lead just three minutes in off a shot from Ben Steeves.
It took a little over 11 minutes for Omaha to cut the lead to one as Cam Mitchell dodged a poke-check from Sioux City goaltender, Axel Mangbo and lifted a backhand over his right leg pad, making it a 3-2 game.
The Lancers were unable to net the game tying goal even with their offensive spark, and fell 3-2.
This loss knocks Omaha to 2-3-1-0 on the season, and improves Sioux City to 4-2-0-0.
The Lancers will be back in action on Friday, October 22nd as the Fargo Force come to Ralston Arena for a two game weekend series. Those games can be caught on MixLR and HockeyTV.
