Big start gives Ice 6-4 win

The Ice won their second straight Fall Classic game today, beating Waterloo 6-4 in a wild finish Sioux City, Iowa.

The Ice jumped ahead 3-0 after two periods, but had to hold on in the third after Waterloo scored four goals in the stanza to tie the game.

The Black Hawks' Jamie Hill tied the game at 4-4 on a power play goal with 1:43 left, but the Ice's Robert Polosello scored with 58 seconds left on a feed from Cody Bradley to put the Ice on top. Ryan Obuchowski added an empty-netter to set the final margin.

Jacob Fallon, Cody Bradley, Obuchowski and Polosello each had a goal and an assist for the Ice.

Fallon scored on Joe Fiala's assist at the 7:05 mark in the first period, and then assisted on Dan Sherer's goal later in the frame. Obuchowski fed Sean Kuraly for a second-period goal that made it 3-0. It was Kuraly's second goal of the Fall Classic.

Waterloo cut it to 3-2 with two goals in the first 5:26 of the third, but just 1:16 later, Bradley cashed in an assist from Polosello to give the Ice a two-goal cushion -- one that evaporated on power play goals by Taylor Cammarata with 11:47 left, and then Hill's game-tying goal in the final two minutes.

The Ice were 0-5 on the power play. Waterloo was 2-7.

Jon Gillies went the distance for the Ice, making 40 saves in net. Obuchowski was a +4.

The Ice close out the preseason at 11 a.m. Saturday.
