Tri-City scored a pair of power-play goals to break a tie and and carry the Storm to a 3-2 win over Omaha at Ralston Arena on Friday night.

The Lancers (3-5-1-0) took a 1-0 lead on Alexander Campbell’s fifth goal of the season 35 seconds into the second period.

But Omaha struggled to stay out of the box, matching a season high with seven penalties, including four in the second period. The Storm (3-5-1-1) took advantage and handed the Lancers their fifth loss in their last six games.

Nick Capone scored on a power play with 3:06 left in the second period to put Tri-City ahead 2-1. Felix Carenfelt added another goal on the man advantage just under five minutes into the third.

Kyle McClellan had 29 saves for the Lancers, who were outshot 32-26.

Jackson Decker pulled the Lancers within 3-2 when he scored with 12:44 remaining, but the Lancers were unable to beat Tri-City goalie Daniel Allin the rest of the way. Allin finished with 24 saves.

Omaha will host Tri-City again at 7:05 p.m. Saturday.
