The Sioux City Musketeers went 0-for-4 on power play chances, while Waterloo went 2-for-4, and the Black Hawks won game one of the Western Conference, 3-2, on Friday night at Young Arena.

Sioux City scored in the first five minutes of the game. Avery Peterson gave the Musketeers a 1-0 lead when he knocked in a rebound. Trevor Olson and Jared Thomas got the assists.

Waterloo tied the game at the 15:23 mark when Drew Melanson beat Kyle Hayton. The Black Hawks outshot Sioux City 18-14 in the first period.

Waterloo took their first lead with under five minutes left in the second period. Tyler Sheehy scored a power play goal and Waterloo was ahead 2-1.

Waterloo upped their lead to 3-1 midway through the third period on another power play goal by Patrick Russell. Sioux City answered :40 seconds later as Trevor Olson lit the lamp to cut the lead to 3-2, with Peterson and Jared Thomas getting the assists, but that's as close as it would get.

"We gave up a penalty kill goal and I though our veteran players had an answer," said Musketeer head coach Jay Varady. "You've got to have a push back at that time of the game and those guys provided that answer right away with the push back. After that it's time to continue to push and continue to go after it. We didn't have enough time. We ran out of clock."

"We need to get back to what we're doing," said goalie Kyle Hayton. "We had a good first period and a good second half of the third. We just need to play a full sixty minutes."

"We were going pretty good. We were throwing the body, making the plays, especially in that first period," said forward Trevor Olson. "We got off to a good start. Unfortunately that second period didn't go the way we wanted and we ended up down one at the end."

Game two of the best-of-five series is Saturday night at 7:05 in Waterloo.
