MUSKEGON, Mich. — Waterloo went just 1-for-7 on the power play Friday, but the one opportunity the Black Hawks converted was the game-winner in a 5-4 United States Hockey League road win at Muskegon.

Anthony Del Gaizo of the Lumberjacks went to the penalty box for a five- minute cross- checking major with 3:29 to play, and Matej Blumel broke a 4-4 tie with assists from Mason Palmer and Kyle Koopman with 2:15 remaining.

Waterloo, 11-6-0-1 overall and 5-0-0-1 in its last six games, built a 3-1 lead midway through the second period on goals by Solag Bakich, a shorthander by Ben Copeland and a tally by Jackson Cates.
