Posted 222 days ago ago by Kendall Grayson

Kearney, NE. – The Tri-City Storm will host the Fargo Force for the second consecutive night tonight at the Viaero Center in Kearney. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:05pm. Last night, Fargo defeated Tri-City 4-2 to end a six-game winning streak for the Storm. Despite the loss, Tri-City remains the 1st place team in the Western Conference standings entering tonight’s game against the Force. Tonight’s game will be the 2nd game in a four game regular season series between Fargo and Tri-City, and it will be the last time Fargo visits the Viaero Center in the regular season. Tickets for the game can be purchased online at www.stormhockey.com, by calling 308-338-8144, or by visiting the Viaero Center Box Office prior to tonight’s game.

 

Tri-City (16-5-1-0) lost only its 5th game in regulation in last night’s home loss to Fargo. The loss was also only the 2nd regulation home loss of the year. Khristian Acosta and Joe Molenaar each scored goals for the Storm in the loss. Acosta’s goal was his 3rd of the season, and Molenaar’s goal was his 4th of the year. Tri-City was outshot 26-17 in the game, marking the 6th time this year that the Storm have been outshot in a game. The Storm has given up the least amount of goals of any team in the USHL to this point in the season, allowing just 47 in 22 games played. Last night marked the first time in over a month that Tri-City has given up four or more goals in a single game. The offense was limited to two goals in last night’s game. The Storm has not lost a game this season when scoring three or more goals.

 

Fargo (12-7-1-2) remains in 5th place in the Western Conference standings following last night’s 4-2 road win over Tri-City. Fargo’s Ben Meyers scored two goals in last night’s win and increased his team scoring lead by six goals over teammate Ryan O’Reilly. Tyler Gratton netted his 8th goal of the season in the Fargo win, and Dan Russell scored his 1st career goal. Ryan Bischel picked up his 10th win of the season in net, stopping 15 of the Storm’s 17 shots. The Force will host the Storm for the final two games of the regular season series next weekend at Scheels Arena in Fargo, ND.
