CHICAGO — Waterloo fought off a Chicago rally in the third period and defeated the Steel 4-2 in a United States Hockey League matchup Friday.

The Black Hawks got off to a strong start with Connor Caponi and Emil Ohrvall connecting for first-period goals. Vladislav Firstov made it 3-0 with the only goal of the middle period.

Chicago (4-7-1-0) broke up the shutout 2:32 into the third period and added a power-play goal 2:09 later to make it 3-2, but Waterloo’s defense and goaltender Logan Stein didn’t let the Steel score again.
