SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
The Sioux City Musketeers kept their title hopes afloat with a 4-3 overtime win over Waterloo in the Western Conference finals to force Game 4 on Sunday.
Tied 2-2 in the third period, Avery Peterson gave Sioux City a 3-2 lead. But, in the final seconds with an extra attacker, Waterloo took the wind right out of the Musketeers sails, tying the game and forcing overtime with 4.3 seconds in regulation.
In the extra session, after several scoring chances by both sides, Joel LEsperance kept Sioux City's Clark Cup title hopes alive with his first goal of the postseason.
"It's nice to know we can live to play another day," Lesperance said. "Now we've got the momentum on our side and I think this series can swing a little bit."
"I know we've got more than one game left," Adam Johnson said. "We're definitely ready for this, we've been working all season for it. It should be a lot of fun. We plan on playing a lot more games this year."
"Playing in front of these fans, it's exciting especially when they're into it," Trevor Olson added. "We just want to play our best hockey and with momentum on our side, it's what we're going to do."
Game four is on Sunday at 7:05. If Sioux City wins, game 5 in in Waterloo on Tuesday.
