DUBUQUE — The Waterloo Warriors rallied from an early deficit to post their fourth win in five games with a 3-1 victory over the Dubuque Devils Wednesday in Midwest High School Hockey League action.
The Warriors improved to 10-6-1-1 and jumped into fourth place, while shaking off a disappointing, 4-2, defeat to Quad City on Sunday.
Dubuque tallied just 4 minutes and 2 seconds into the first on a Luke Millius goal, but Tyler Starbeck knotted the game with a power play goal with 3:42 left in the first on assists from Nick Samuelson and Kole Latusick.
Then, Waterloo wasted little time breaking the tie in the second period as Carter Herbst scored just 3:29 in. Coulter Dupree made it 3-1 with 1:35 left and there was no scoring in the third period.
Samuelson and Kyle Cowell each had two assists for the Warriors, while senior goalie Dawson Sturch turned away 25 shots.
Waterloo is now off until Jan. 19 when it hosts Ames.
