Western Conference leading Omaha downed Sioux City 2-1 Tuesday night, snapping the Musketeers seven game winning streak.

Hayton allowed two first period goals, while Burns just one.

Leading 1-0 the Lancers made it a 2-0 game when Jimmy Schuldt dove head first after a rebound and sent the puck off both posts and in.

Still down two with less than four minutes to play, Sam Saliba found the back of the net for the second time this season to make it a one goal game.

Neither goalie allowed a goal the rest of the night.

Sioux City returns to the ice Jan. 3, to face Muskegon.
