(Lincoln, NE) - The Sioux City Musketeers led wire-to-wire Saturday night and scored a season-high eight goals as part of an 8-2 victory over Lincoln at The Ice Box.
Sioux City opened a 3-0 lead after one period. Brian Carrabes collected a turned-over puck and scored unassisted 3:26 into the game. Ethan Edwards then doubled the Musketeer lead, corralling a Carter Loney pass and slotting it past Lincoln netminder Ryan Ouellette. Less than three minutes later Christian Jimenez found the back of the net assisted by Ben Steeves.
The score held until midway through the second period when Tabor Heaslip received a no-look pass from Justin Hryckowian and slammed the puck past Ouellette. Shortly after that Chase Bradley scored unassisted to put the Musketeers ahead 5-0 before Lincoln got a goal back in the final minutes of the period.
Jimenez scored for a second time in the contest 53 seconds into the third period and Joel Maatta followed that up with a goal of his own to give Sioux City a 7-1 lead. The Stars added a power play goal with less than five minutes left in regulation but Brenden Olson put an exclamation point on the night with a goal in the final 90 seconds.
Eleven different Musketeers recorded a point in the contest, with Jimenez, Loney and Carrabes each finishing with multi-point games. Netminder Alex Tracy stopped 23 shots as Sioux City improves to 16-17-1 overall. Up next the Musketeers travel to Tri City for a 4:05 contest on Sunday.
