Fast start pushes Black Hawks past Saints in Waterloo's season finale

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

 The Waterloo Black Hawks got all the offense they needed in the first 27 seconds. The Black Hawks scored twice in that time period in a 4-1 win over rival Dubuque on Saturday night. It was the season finale for Waterloo as they'll miss the playoffs for the first time in 9 seasons.

John Wiitala opened the scoring just 12 seconds in, knocking in a shot in front of the net that barely made it across the goal line. Just 15 seconds later on a mad scramble near keeper Jacob Nehama, Brock Boeser found the back of the net for a quick 2-0 lead.

Dubuque's Brett Boeing would score late in the first period, firing a shot past Cale Morris in the final second of a Fighting Saints power-play, but it would be the only offense the Fighting Saints could muster. Morris stopped 26 of 27 Dubuque shots on the night.

Waterloo added a second period goal from Bryan Lemos and an empty netter from Max Coatta in the 3rd to round out the scoring.
