Postgame Recap: Jeannette, Hawks Find a Way

By WBH, 03/11/22, 10:30PM CST


Win Despite Being Outshot at a 3-to-1 Rate

Jacob Jeannette went from depths to heights as the Waterloo Black Hawks scratched out a 3-2 overtime road win against the Sioux City Musketeers at Tyson Events Center Friday.

Jeannette was whistled for hooking with 41 seconds left in regulation.  He watched from the penalty box as the clock creeped to the end of regulation with Sioux City on a power play.  Waterloo then survived the Musketeers carryover advantage time as the teams opened the extra period four-on-three.  

The Hawks gained control in the defensive zone as Jeannette’s penalty was ending, and the puck was hoisted down the length of the ice on net.  Goalie Alex Tracy did not control the disc, pushing it to the wall at his right.  With all of the other skaters at the other end of the rink, Jeannette swooped in, picked up the puck, and cut to the top of the crease.  With Tracy unable to poke the puck away, Jeannette lifted it over him and under the crossbar.

Waterloo’s last road win had been on January 15th, with seven losses in between that night and Friday.

In the first period, the Hawks were turned away on two early power plays but still came away with the only goal before intermission.  At 13:47, Jake Rozzi prevented a clearing attempt from escaping and initiated a back-and-forth passing sequence with Connor Brown.  From the right circle, Brown found a target over Tracy’s left shoulder and hit the net for his 10th goal of the season.

Sioux City outshot the Hawks 17-4 in the second period, but Waterloo had the only shot that mattered.  On a power play and in transition at 17:41, the play the Hawks wanted didn’t materialize, but Ray Fust found the puck in the left circle, and his low shot eluded Tracy.

The 2-0 lead did not hold up.  Ben Steeves tapped in a chance at 1:02 of the third, following Damien Carfagna’s rush up right wing.  Then Owen McLaughlin tied the game with a power play score from the left circle at 17:22.

Waterloo was limited to just one shot on goal in the third period and only 13 for the night, getting the win despite being outshot 40-13.  Emmett Croteau made 38 saves in the victory.

Friday’s game was Waterloo’s fourth straight away from Young Arena.  The Black Hawks are back at home Saturday at 6:05 p.m. against the Omaha Lancers.  Fans age 21 and over can enjoy 2-for-1 Bud Light through the end of the first period.  To order seats, call the Domino’s Black Hawks Box Office at (319) 291-7680 or visit
