(2.10.2017) Early and regular scoring allowed the Waterloo Black Hawks to stay out in front of the Lincoln Stars throughout Friday’s 5-3 victory at the Ice Box.

A turnover 2:13 into the game provided the Black Hawks’ the chance to take a 1-0 lead. Jackson Cates swiped a pass at the inside edge of the right wing circle and blasted a shot into the net at the short side.  Waterloo made it 2-0 four-and-a-half minutes later.  Grant Gabriele sprang Kevin Charyszyn behind the Lincoln defense; Josef Korenar stopped Charyszyn’s chance but couldn’t control the puck and Bailey Conger followed up to knock it in.

Lincoln responded at 11:33.  Ethen Frank set up Michael Gillespie for a blast from the slot which flew between Robbie Beydoun and the post to his right.

During the opening minutes of the second period, the Hawks stretched the lead to three goals.  On a power play at 3:10, Grant Gabriele sent a rocket to the nylon netting from the deep slot.  Then at 7:13, Garrett Wait flipped the puck across the netmouth to Charyszyn, who tapped it into an open side.

Lincoln drew a goal back at 12:47 as Frank fended off a check in the left circle and dodged a Beydoun poke check to score.

At 10:37 of the third, the Stars clawed back within one.  With a Black Hawk defender forced to the bench after his helmet was knocked off, Christian Evers was able to wind up a fire the puck into the net on a turnover in the high slot.

Following several tense shifts, the win was sealed on Shane Bowers’ empty net goal with 33.1 seconds to go.
