SIOUX CITY — Garrett Wait’s unassisted goal 59 seconds into overtime lifted Waterloo to a 3-2 United States Hockey League victory at Sioux City Friday, snapping a three-game losing streak for the Black Hawks.

Waterloo, which scored just three total goals during its three-game losing streak, struck quickly Friday when Bobby Trivigno converted assists from Hunter Lellig and Jack Drury for a 1-0 lead just 4 minutes, 16 seconds into the game.

Sioux City tied the game with the only score of the second period, but Wait connected with an assist from Mason Palmer 4:29 into the third to put Waterloo back on top briefly. Just 1:13 later, the Musketeers (2-4-1-1) drew even again at 2-2.

Wait wasted little time ending it, scoring on the only shot on goal in the overtime.

Jared Moe got the win in goal for the Black Hawks, stopping 25 of the 27 shots he faced.
