Black Hawks Start 2016 With Win
Drew Hotte made 26 stops on an almost perfect night during a 3-1 Waterloo Black Hawks road win against the Fargo Force at Scheels Arena on Saturday, January 2, 2016.
Just 20 seconds into the game, Ronnie Hein stepped into the offensive zone, curled, and dropped a pass to the late-coming Niko Hildenbrand. The veteran forward snapped a shot over the glove of Ryan Wischow. A dozen minutes later, Garrett Wait wasn’t looking for Marshall Moise, but that’s who his pass found, and Moise lifted the puck into the net with a transition chance from the right circle.
Shane McMahan tightened the screws early in the third after a scoreless second period. McMahan buried the rebound of a Cole Gallant initial shot at 1:29. However, Moise scored his second of the night at 13:23, sending a low shot past Wischow from the left circle.
With the win, Waterloo clinched the 2015/16 season series against Fargo.
