Waterloo Black Hawk Tyler Kostelecky celebrates his first period goal at Young Arena against Dubuque earlier this season.

A back-and-forth passing play had produced the only goal of the first period.  On a rush at 8:29, LaStarza gave the puck to Owen Baker in the right circle. Baker returned it to LaStarza in the slot, leaving him with an open side to score.

A controversial Lancer goal tied the score 1:58 before the second intermission.  Wright knocked Williams back into the net while trying to retrieve a pass from Michael Cameron.  The puck crossed the line, and was ruled to be a good goal.
