Storm focused on now nearing midway point of season

Members of the Tri-City Storm celebrate after scoring a goal in a game at the Viaero Center in Kearney, Neb. (KHGI)

Even after suffering back–to–back losses to Green Bay, the Tri–City Storm are still firmly entrenched in the top half of the Western Conference with 35 points.

At 17–7, the Storm are two points behind the Fargo Force for the top spot in the West.

"We need to get better, we need to tackle the next game," said head coach Anthony Noreen. "Whatever the result is we need to continue to do that and I think our guys are doing a good job of that."

The timing, perhaps, couldn't have worked out better for the Storm, as they get ready to host four straight at the Viaero Center - a place where the purple and black have won 75-percent of their games this season. But to no surprise, they're showing little interest in records and rankings throughout the league as we near the midway point of the season.

"It's a waste of energy to look at what anybody else is doing. You know we've got enough to worry about here and enough on our plate without looking at the scoreboard and see what other teams are doing and where we're at in the standings. You don't hear guys in our locker room talking about what place we're in, or what the scores were in any other games and that tells me our coaches are doing their jobs," Noreen says.

Tri–City is home to Sioux City, Friday at 7:35 p.m. and Omaha the same time on Saturday.
