USHL Fall Classic, Day 2

The USHL's Fall Classic began its second day with Des Moines facing Waterloo. The Black Hawks jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the 1st period, scoring on 4 powerplay opportunities. The Buccaneers came back in the 2nd period behind Locke Jillson's 2 powerplay goals, cutting Waterloo's lead to 6-4. The Bucs picked up another goal in the 3rd to make it a 6-5 game, which was the final score.

Keir Ross picked up an assist to help Omaha defeat Chicago, 5-0 in an early afternoon game. The Lancers' Drew Palmisano (Michigan State) picked up the shutout.

Vince Mihalek, did not play for Cedar Rapids this afternoon, though he had a nice mention in USHR based upon his play on Friday. Vince's RoughRider mates needed 3 goals in the 3rd period to subdue Lincoln, 6-4. David Boehm (UMass) had a hand in all 3 goals for Cedar Rapids in the decisive 3rd period, scoring twice and assisting once.

The pre-season tournament concludes Saturday with Des Moines taking on Green Bay, Omaha going against Ohio, and Cedar Rapids battling Sioux Falls.
