SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) - Down 3-2 nearing the end of the third period, Bobo Carpenter, Joe Snively and Joel LEsperance scored within four minutes of each other lifting Sioux City to a 5-3 win over Youngstown Saturday night.

Youngstown answered right back with goals from Tommy Parran and Josh Melnick to put the Phantoms up 2-1 at the first intermission.

After a scoreless second period, Cedric Lacroix tied the game with his eighth goal of the year at the 5:11 mark of the period.

Six minutes later Youngstown fired right back to take a 3-2 lead after Conor Lemirande found the back of the net.
