Notable Night for the Waterloo Black Hawks

Waterloo Black Hawks


By Aaron Hepker

WATERLOO, Iowa - Two Waterloo Black Hawks scored their first USHL goals and a rookie net-minder earned his first win during a 6-1 decision against the Chicago Steel Saturday at Young Arena.

The first score for Dan McNamara as a Black Hawk made the game 1-0 at 9:11 of the first period, when the first-year forward bounced in a chance off of goalie Connor Wilson to cap a breakaway. After Jacob MacDonald’s wrist shot under the crossbar made it 2-0 at 13:03 of the second, Trevor Owens scored for the first time on a backhander at 16:55.

The lone Chicago goal went to Michael Gunn with 1:46 remaining before the second intermission. Eamon McAdam stopped 20 other Chicago Steel shots for his first USHL victory.

In the third period, Waterloo killed off a pair of Chicago power plays, then added three goals to their lead, two by Luke Hannon and one for Aaron Pearce. Hannon scored at even strength and on the power play, while Pearce’s goal was shorthanded.

Waterloo continues a three-game stretch within the USHL Eastern Conference next weekend with visits to Indiana and Youngstown.
