FARGO, N.D. — Fargo took advantage of two Waterloo penalties in the third period to hand the Black Hawks a 5-3 defeat in United States Hockey League action Saturday night.

The game was tied 3-3 when the Force scored power-play goals just 50 seconds apart. Fargo (7-2-1-1) added an empty net score in the closing seconds to cap its sixth straight victory.

Waterloo (5-5-0-0) led 1-0 after the opening period thanks to Danny DiGrande’s goal with an assist from Matej Blumel, but the Black Hawks were unable to convert any of four first-period power plays.

Fargo then reeled off three unanswered goals in the second period, including one on the power play and one shorthanded, to take a 3-1 lead. Waterloo got within 3-2 when Matt Koopman cashed in a man-advantage situation with help from Blumel and James Marooney just 1:03 before the period ended.

Then, just 1:33 into the third, Garrett Wait tied the game with assists from Jack Drury and Bobby Trivigno before Fargo cashed in on the late Waterloo penalties.
