Sioux City and Tri City are in an intense battle for the fourth spot in the West Division. Waterloo has already locked up their playoff spot in the East, but I think that this will still be a great game.
Waterloo's leading scorer is J.T. Brown, who is supported by Brock Montpetit and Tyler Barnes. Defensively, the Black Hawks have two offensive playmakers, Dan Sova and Zach Palmquist. Waterloo also has Nick Ebert, who I wrote about, a 15 year old defenseman who may be going on to play in the OHL. At goaltender, Waterloo has two goalies that are capable of keeping their teams in the game. Willie Yanakeff is coming off of a very successful weekend and I expect him to get the start on Friday. If Yanakeff doesn't get the start, C.J. Motte is a very capable goalie.
Saturday April 3rd- Tri City v. Sioux Falls
As mentioned before, Tri City and Sioux City are in a battle for that coveted last spot in the West. If the situation works out, this matchup could be the first round matchup in the playoffs.
