KEARNEY, Neb. — Goals have been hard to come by against Tri-City this season.

Waterloo needed just one Friday night.

Jackson Cates connected on a power-play 13 minutes, 23 seconds into the opening period, and the Black Hawks made it stand up for a 1-0 United States Hockey League road win.

It was the first defeat in the last seven games and just the second of the season for the Storm (8-2-0-0), who have allowed just 16 goals in 10 contests.

Waterloo (6-5-0-0) got shutout goaltending from Jared Moe, who turned away 25 shots on net, and fought off a furious Tri-City attack in the third period when the Storm out-shot the Black Hawks 17-3.

The two teams meet again Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
