Muskies top Storm, win Anderson Cup for first time since 1986
SIOUX CITY, IA —
The Muskies topped Tri-City 4-1 Sunday afternoon and were presented the Anderson Cup, given to the USHL team with the best regular season record. After the game, head coach Jay Varady and his players refused to touch the cup, as is tradition and superstition for teams because they're hoping to win the Clark Cup. But that didn't stop them from reflecting on the accomplishment.
"For the group it's special," said Varady. "Because now we get to live in Sioux City forever. One thing about winning a banner is whenever you come back years from now, you'll remember that team. You'll remember that group. You'll have good memories and this group has had a lot of good memories. It's not the end of the road for us. We're looking for the other cup. It's a really good accomplishment for our group in the regular season."
"It's pretty special," said Musketeers defenseman Jacob Wilson. "It's even more special to go through it with this group of guys. We're just one step closer to our goal for the year. So, it's a milestone but we just have to keep moving forward."
