Kearney, NE. – The Tri-City Storm complete a three game weekend today at Ralston Arena in a 4:05pm matchup with the Omaha Lancers. Today’s game will be the fourth preseason game for Tri-City, and the final game of the I-80 Cup preseason event hosted by Omaha.

Elias Rosen, Ben Almquist, Colton Kalezic, Ruben Rafkin, Joe Berg, Benji Eckerle, and Asa Kinnear have also scored goals for the Storm through the first three games of the preseason.
