Akira Schmid finished with 25 saves Friday to help his Omaha Lancers end a three-game losing streak with a 2-1 win over the Lincoln Stars. His performance proved necessary once again in Saturday’s 5-3 defeat of the Lincoln Stars. The Lancers pulled starting-goaltender Jon Mor, before Schmid came into the game in relief and held the Stars scoreless (against 13 shots) for the final 21 minutes of play.
