Waterloo Beats the Musketeers in Game One

The Waterloo power play proved to be the difference in game one of the Western Conference Finals as they beat Sioux City, 3-2.
WATERLOO, Iowa (ABC9 Sports)--Waterloo scored two power play goals that proved to be the difference in game one of the Western Conference Finals, beating the Sioux City Musketeers 3-2 Friday night.

The game started well for Sioux City as Avery Peterson was credited with a controversial goal in the first to open up the scoring. But with less than five minutes to go in the opening period, Drew Melanson ripped a shot past Musketeer Goaltender Kyle Hayton to tie things up.

In the second, the Black Hawks got their first power play goal courtesy of Tyler Sheehy to give the hosts the lead, 2-1. That score would hold until midway through the third period.

At the 10:05 mark of the third, Patrick Russell scored on the power play and Waterloo gained a two-goal advantage.

Just forty seconds later the Musketeers responded. Captain Trevor Olson got Sioux City within a goal, but that was all they could muster.

Game two is set for 7:05 on Saturday night.
