USHL hockey: Black Hawks sink Bucs

{{featured_button_text}}

DES MOINES — Waterloo cashed in on three power-play opportunities asnd held off Des Moines 5-3 in a chippy United States Hockey League game Friday night.

Ryder Rolston’s man-advantage tally gave the Western Conference-leading Black Hawks (19-5-1-0) a 1-0 first-period lead and the first of Joey Cassetti’s two goals — also on a power play — made it 2-0 after two periods.

Cassetti started the year at Merrimack College but returned at the semester break for his third season in Waterloo and was making his first USHL appearance of the season.

Connor Caponi extended the Waterloo lead to 3-0 with a shorthanded score before the Buccaneers (12-11-1-2) came alive with the next two goals. Cassetti made it 4-2 and after Des Moines drew within one again in the final minute, Xander Lamppa sealed it with an empty-netter for the Black Hawks.

The game featured 24 total penalties and six special teams goals.
