The Waterloo Black Hawks outdistanced the Dubuque Fighting Saints and Cedar Rapids RoughRiders for the Dupaco Cowbell Cup for the second straight year in 2017/18.

“Supporting community organizations and bringing value to our members are both important Dupaco initiatives,” said Joe Hearn, President and CEO, Dupaco Community Credit Union. “We’re excited to ring in the hockey season by partnering with the Dubuque, Cedar Rapids, and Waterloo teams of the USHL as the presenting sponsor of the Cowbell Cup series! This partnership allows us to help provide excellent family-friendly events as well as to share our cooperative message.”

Points for the Dupaco Cowbell Cup are awarded solely from head-to-head games between the Black Hawks, RoughRiders, and Fighting Saints: two for a win and one for an overtime or shootout loss.  Due to an uneven number of games between the teams this season, the following matchups will NOT count toward the standings: October 14th (Dubuque at Waterloo), December 1st (Cedar Rapids at Dubuque), and December 9th (Dubuque at Cedar Rapids).  As a result, each team will participate in 12 games which will determine the winner.

Dupaco has been the presenting sponsor of the Cowbell Cup since 2015/16.  Dupaco Community Credit Union is a full-service, member-owned financial cooperative.  With offices located in Waterloo/Cedar Falls, Dubuque, and Cedar Rapids, Dupaco helps to improve the financial lives of its more than 100,000 member-owners while making a positive difference in the communities it serves.

The Black Hawks have now claimed the Cowbell Cup three times: this season, last season and in 2013/14.  The complete schedule of games which will count toward the series standings is detailed below:
