SIOUX CITY — Waterloo found the will and a way to overcome a three-goal deficit Saturday night as the Black Hawks charged past Sioux City 4-3 in United States Hockey League action.

The Musketeers (20-19-4-2) struck for two early goals just 11 seconds apart in the first period for a 2-0 lead and made it 3-0 at the 9:16 mark. Waterloo got on the board with 2:31 left in the period when Jack Drury converted an assist from Ben Copeland.

The Black Hawks started the second on a power play, and Garrett Wait cashed in to make it 3-2 just :51 into period. Waterloo then erased the 3-0 deficit completely when Sam Huff cashed in another man-advantage situation at the 5:10 mark.

Jackson Cates delivered the game-winner 7:19 into the third with an unassisted, shorthanded tally.

Matej Tomek gave the Black Hawks an outstanding goaltending effort in relief of starter Jared Moe. Tomek stopped 23 of the 24 shots he faced to help Waterloo improve to 28-14-4-1 and retain its hold on second place in the USHL’s Western Conference.
