Sioux City Musketeers beat Des Moines in shootout

SIOUX CITY — Ryan Conmy scored twice, Ben Doran scored the only goal in a penalty shootout and Axel Mangbo saved all three of the Des Moines Buccaneers’ tries as the Sioux City Musketeers won 3-2 on Sunday.

The Musketeers opened the scoring with the 5:03 mark of the first period as Conmy scored his first of two goals to give the Muskies a 1-0 lead.

That goal was answered by Des Moines’ Braden Rourke, who hit the back of the net to level things 1-1.

A power play that spilled over into the second period gave the Musketeers a chance to take the lead. Conmy brought his team 10th place of the season after a no-look pass from Ben Doran to lead Sioux City 2-1 into the third period.

In this third period, however, the Bucs found the net again. Braedon Ford hit a fluttering puck to level the game at 2-2 and send it into overtime.
