Black Hawks whip Tri-City 4-1

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Three second period goals within a ten-minute span vaulted the Waterloo
Black Hawks past the Tri-City Storm to a 4-1 win Thursday evening at Young
Arena.

Following a scoreless - and very evenly played - opening period, the Black
Hawks seized control of the contest in the second.  Waterloo outshot the
Storm 19-7 in the middle frame, breaking the 0-0 deadlock on a Zach
Sanford redirection from the top of the crease at 8:47.  Just 1:08 later,
the Hawks built the lead when Mark Friedman stepped into the zone and
snapped a shot from the left circle over the glove of Jacob Johansson.
The final marker of the second pushed Waterloo's lead to three goals at
18:15, when Brandon Montour blasted a puck from the deep slot past the
stick side of Johansson.

Scoring was halted again for most of the final period, until each team
broke through for a power play goal in the final five minutes of
regulation.  With 4:10 to play, Joel L'Esperance knocked in a rebound to
blemish Mathias Israelsson's shutout bid.  However, the Storm substituted
an extra attacker for Johansson while they went shorthanded in the final
minute, and Blake Winiecki capitalized with an empty net goal as 29.8
seconds showed on the clock.

Israelsson made 24 saves, including ten in a relatively busy third.
Waterloo outshot Tri-City 41-25 during the affair.  The decision was P.K.
O'Handley's 519th regular season victory, moving him past former Sioux
City Musketeers and Des Moines Buccaneers Head Coach Bob Ferguson for
third place in USHL history.

After a night off Friday, the Black Hawks return to action on Saturday for
a Prairie Farms Cowbell Cup clash against the Dubuque Fighting Saints on
the road at Mystique Ice Center.  The final home game prior to Christmas
at Young Arena will be on December 14th versus the National Team
Development Program Under-17's.
