Posted 23 days ago ago by Kendall Grayson

Kearney, NE. – The Tri-City Storm host the Omaha Lancers tonight at the Viaero Center in the final game of “Rivalry Weekend”. Last night, Tri-City defeated the Lincoln Stars for the 6th time this season in a fast-paced game that ended in a 3-1 Storm win. Joe Berg, Brendan Furry, and Ronnie Attard scored Tri-City’s goals, and Isaiah Saville made 22 saves on 23 shots to record the win in goal. Tickets are still available for tonight’s game and can be purchased online at www.StormHockey.com, or by calling 308-338-8144. Puck drop is set for 7:05pm.

 

Tri-City (20-6-1-0) enters tonight’s home games against the Lancers as the 1st place team in the Western Conference standings with 41 points. Tri-City is 4-1-1-0 in 6 games against Omaha this season and will seek its third straight win in the season series and its third straight win overall in tonight’s game. The Storm’s 86 goals scored on the season are the 3rd most scored by a Western Conference team, and Tri-City’s 59 goals allowed is the lowest of any team in the USHL this season. Last night, the Storm won its 10th game at the Viaero Center this season and now has a home record of 11-2-1-0 with one “home” win coming at the 2018 USHL Fall Classic earlier this season. Tri-City has won 8 of its last 10 games overall. Tonight’s game is the final home game for the Storm until the team hosts the Waterloo Black Hawks for a weekend series on January 11th & 12th.

 

Omaha (8-15-0-2) is the only team to defeat the Storm multiple times at the Viaero Center this season, with wins on October 21st and November 6th.

Omaha is 2-7-0-1 in its last 10 games and lost a home game to the Des Moines Buccaneers by a final score of 5-2 on Thursday night. Tonight’s game is the first of a six-game road stretch for the Lancers, who will return home on January 13th to face off against Tri-City.
