Waterloo beats Dubuque 4-3 in a tight battle at Young Arena

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A back-and-forth third period went the way of the hometown Waterloo Black Hawks Friday night as they used two third period powerplay goals to outlast the Dubuque Fighting Saints, 4-3, at the Young Arena. J.T. Stenglein scored the game-winning goal at the 13:45 mark of the third period to hand the Fighting Saints their third consecutive loss. Five of the game's seven goals were scored on the powerplay.

Scoring was started at even strength in the first period by Waterloo's Pijus Rulevicius 6:16 into the game's opening frame. Forward Tim Lappin collected the puck behind the Dubuque goal and wrapped it on net. Arthur Brey made the save with his pads, but the puck bounced in the crease and off of Rulevicius for his tenth goal of the season. Lappin and Kloos assisted on the game's opening goal.
The Black Hawks added to the lead in the second period on a powerplay goal. With Dubuque attempting to kill a 5-on-3 powerplay for the Black Hawks, the puck came to the high slot to blueliner Ian McCoshen who fired a slapshot. The puck was deflected off a Dubuque player in the crease and slowed up, trickling past Brey for the goal at 1:45
The Fighting Saints would finally solve Petersen for the first time with a powerplay goal of their own at the 7:25 mark of period two off the stick of Matt Benning. After a great shift on the man-advantage where the Fighting Saints cycled the puck, Mike Downing received a pass at the right point. He directed the puck over to Matt Benning who blasted a one-timer past Petersen's blocker for his seventh goal of the season to make it 2-1. Downing and DiChaira assisted on the goal.
The third period saw the game swing back and forth. Peter Quenneville potted his 21st goal of the season 4:28 into the third period to tie the game at two. Shane Sooth's shot on a two-on-one missed the goal, but Quenneville followed the shot up, and banked in the rebound off the end boards past Petersen to tie the game.
The two teams traded powerplay goals later in the period two minutes apart. First Zach Stepan scored on a five-on-three powerplay for the Hawks from Justin Kloos and Taylor Cammarata at 8:02. Dubuque was down two men for 1:53 and survived the first minute of the kill, but a back door pass allowed Stepan to score past Brey to put Waterloo back up, 3-2.
At 10:50 with Dubuque on the powerplay the Fighting Saints got another goal from a defenseman. Early into the man advantage DiChiara worked the puck to the goal line on the right wing to John Stevens. He fed a pass through the crease to Downing who joined off the left point and rocketed a shot past Petersen for his second goal of the season to tie the game again.
The roller coaster ride continued as Stenglein scored on the powerplay at 13:45 to seal the deal for the Black Hawks. Seamus Malone and Sooth attempted the clear the puck, but Waterloo kept it in at the left point, leaving the Fighting Saints outnumbered down low, and allowing Stenglein to punch in a rebound for the game-winning goal.
Petersen, making only his second start versus Dubuque this season, was great between the pipes stopping 37 shots, including many in spectacular fashion. Dubuque outshot Waterloo 40-34 in the game. The Black Hawks were 3-for-6 on the powerplay and Dubuque was 2-for-8. The Fighting Saints are now 0-2-1 at Young Arena this season.
