Five unanswered Madison Capitols goals in the third period flummoxed the Waterloo Black Hawks Saturday during a 5-1 result at Young Arena.
The Hawks jumped ahead at 6:51 with the only goal of the first 40 minutes. Michael Ferrandino shot from the right point, and the chance was tipped by Ben Copeland. That created a rebound, which Jackson Cates put into an open side.
Waterloo fired 22 fruitless shots at Dryden McKay in the second period, but Madison tied the score at 1:27 of the third when Ryan O’Reilly’s shot went down and in off the crossbar. Verners Egle slipped in a breakaway backhander at 4:14 to put Madison in front.
Alec Broetzman and Cade Borchardt added tallies originating from behind the net at 7:21 and 14:27 respectively. Broetzman’s goal was during a power play. Mick Messner capped the night at 18:17, scoring into an empty net.
Waterloo goes on the road Sunday to meet the Central Illinois Flying Aces in Peoria. It is the first of five consecutive away matchups.
