On Friday night, the Bucs scored early in the 1st, but Omaha scores three unanswered including an empty netter with five seconds left to seal the win.

The Musketeers dropped both games against the Roughriders in a home-and-home series. On Friday night, Walker scored Sioux City’s fourth goal late in the 3rd period, but it was too little too late for the Musketeers, who allowed six goals. After Cedar Rapids scored first, the Musketeers scored twice to take a 2-1 lead early in the 2nd. But Graham Slaggert (Notre Dame commit) led a Roughrider rally, scoring twice to re-establish a Cedar Rapids lead, and the Roughriders would score thrice more in the 3rd period to runaway with the game. On Saturday night, Slaggert scored again and added an assist and Jiri Patera (VGK, 2017 6th round pick) backstopped a 32-shot shutout of the Musketeers.

Walker was held pointless in Tuesday night’s road game in Waterloo, as the Black Hawks rallied from a 3-1 deficit in the last half of the match with three unanswered goals. Micah Miller, future teammate of Nick Perbix at St. Cloud State, scored twice for the Musketeers to help build that 3-1 lead, but Czech 17 year old Matej Blumel (Connecticut commit) paced Waterloo with a goal and two assists, including the primary on Waterloo local boy Hunter Lellig’s (uncommitted) game-winner midway through the 3rd period.

Sammy Walker notched his first career USHL goal as that line with Dylan Mills (Niagara commit) and Cole Koepke (Minnesota-Duluth commit) continues to produce for the Musketeers. Finnish University of Wisconsin commit Sampo Ranta (2018 draft eligible) scored twice and added an assist to pace Sioux City and former Wisconsin goalie Matt Jurusik (undrafted) stopped 30 shots. Walker’s goal earned him Third Star honors.
