SIOUX CITY, IA | The Musketeers were back at the Tyson Events Center on Saturday night for round two against the Tri-City Storm. The Musketeers won the first game of the weekend in an overtime thriller but couldn't pick of the second victory, losing by a final score of 5-2.

Marcus Kallionkieli made a cross-ice feed Bobby Brink who tipped it home to give Sioux City the lead just 3:45 into the game. The Musketeers managed to kill off two Storm penalties in the period to send them to the locker room with a 1-0 lead.
Sioux City would extend their lead on Josh Boyer's second goal in two nights. Parker Ford hammered a shot and the rebound trickled to Boyer who fired it home to give the Musketeers a 2-0 lead 6:15 into the 2nd period.
Connor McMenamin finally got the Storm on the board with a powerplay goal at the 7:25 mark. Shan Pinto tied things for Tri-City under three minutes later. The Musketeers had their chances in the frame but failed to convert.
In a similar fashion to these teams last meeting in Tri-City the Storm offense came alive in the 3rd period with three unanswered goals to take a 5-2 lead. The Musketeers failed to find any more offensive magic in this one, losing by a final score of 5-2.
Ben Kraws made 17 of 22 saves for the Musketeers while Isaiah Saville made 25 of 27 shots for the Storm.
In some more unfortunate new the Omaha Lancers took down the Green Bay Gamblers, pulling Omaha back within three points of the final playoff spot in the west.
