CR Roughriders edge Black Hawks 2-1

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

After combining for 53 goals in their first six matchups, the Cedar Rapids
RoughRiders edged the Waterloo Black Hawks in a low-scoring, 2-1 contest
at Young Arena Friday.

Jack Rowe recorded the only marker of the opening period, taking a pass
from across the slot which originated from Davey Middleton during a
two-on-two rush at 1:55.  Cedar Rapids appeared to make it 2-0 at 13:44
when Mark Auk flipped a shot into an open goal, but the gaping net was
only available because of a goaltender interference infraction by Andrew
Poturalski.

Waterloo and Cedar Rapids exchanged goals in the second, beginning with a
score by Justin Kloos at 2:20.  With the play created behind the
RoughRider net, Kloos fired a shot from the left wing circle high to the
short side.  However, Cedar Rapids went back ahead on a power play at
10:38, on a score from a similar angle by Dylan Gareau.

That tally proved to be the winner.  It was the second decisive score by
Gareau against the Hawks in less than a week; last Saturday he notched the
third goal in the RoughRiders 6-2 win at Cedar Rapids Ice Arena.

The Prairie Farms Cowbell Cup schedule continues Saturday as the Black
Hawks meet the Dubuque Fighting Saints, the other team vying for the title
of "best team in eastern Iowa," on the road at Mystique Ice Center.
Waterloo's next home game at Young Arena is Friday, March 15th versus the
Lincoln Stars.
