SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
Cal Petersen made 38 saves and Waterloo found the back of the net five times winning Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals 5-1 over Sioux City to advance to the Clark Cup Finals.
The Black Hawks win the best of five series 3-1.
After a scoreless first period, Waterloo broke through with five minutes to play the second on a redirect from Drew Melanson to make it 1-0 Black Hawks.
Less than a minute later, 44 seconds to be exact, the Black Hawks made it 2-0 as Peter Kreiger beat Colin Olson.
Olson made his second start in the conference finals. He started Game 3 following Kyle Hayton's suspension. Hayton was eligible to return for Game 4.
Still trailing 2-0 in the third, Brandon Hawkins smashed home a rebound to make it a one goal game at the 6:43 mark.
However, Waterloo would do the rest of the scoring from there. Blake Winiecki scored on a power play and Tyler Sheehy and Zach Sanford added goals after that to lock up the Western Conference title.
"2-1 we didn't find the back of the net and then we gave them their strength which was their power play," Head Coach Jay Varady said after the loss. We killed most of that thing off and then the one just slipped through the back there."
"I'm really proud of this team," he continued. "It's a hard moment right now to end the season especially with a group you love to work with. For me it was a fantastic to work with these guys. They made it enjoyable every day."
Waterloo will play Indiana in Game 1 of the Clark Cup Finals on Friday, May 9.
