WATERLOO, Iowa - Four unanswered goals over a 12 minute span during the second and third periods doomed the Phantoms (1-4-1) as they fell to the Waterloo Black Hawks on Saturday night 6-3. Patrick Russell and Brandon Montour each had two goals for Waterloo and Cal Petersen made 27 saves for the Black Hawks.

Waterloo (2-1-0) took the lead for good at 15:21 of the second period. Montour took a pass from Hayden Shaw, walked into the slot, and wristed it past Phantoms' goalie Jake Moore, who was screened by two Black Hawks on the play, for Waterloo's first power play goal of the season. They had been 0-9 coming in.

Drew Melanson picked up the game winning goal 40 seconds later. Mark Friedman took a slap shot trailing the play and the rebound trickled behind the net. Jake Horton tipped a pass out in front to Melanson who put it past Moore's left leg to get his first goal of the season and first as Black Hawk after being acquired from the Omaha Lancers on Wednesday.

The lead stretched to 5-2 when Russell got his second goal of the game 51 seconds into the third period during a 5-on-3 advantage for Waterloo. Russell was able to put the rebound of Jake Horton's shot just inside the far post.

The final Waterloo goal of the night came off the rush at 6:58 of the third as Peter Krieger led Liam Pecararo and Friedman in a 3-on-2 rush. Pecararo was able to make a cross ice pass to Friedman who skated in and put a wrister past the lunging Moore. It was the first goal of the season for Friedman, and it made the Black Hawks' lead 6-2.

Waterloo took an early 1-0 lead just 1:08 into the first period. Russell was able to find the puck in a scramble around the crease and put it past Moore for his first goal of the season.

The Phantoms tied it at the 15:43 mark. Kyle Connor flew down the middle of the ice and set up shop behind the net. Black Hawks' goalie Cal Petersen abandoned his left post expecting the wrap around, and Connor sent a pass to JJ Piccinich who tapped it in for his sixth goal of the season. Piccinich and Connor both have at least a point in five of the Phantoms' six games this year, Connor has scored in five straight.

Waterloo would retake the lead with just 1:40 left to play in the first period. Krieger won a faceoff back to Montour, who fired a shot in from the left point for his first goal of the season.

The Phantoms tied the game at two goals each 8:42 into the second period as Ryan Schwalbe took a pass from Fredric Larsson and went streaking down the right wing. When goalie Petersen went down to his knees, Schwalbe elevated his wrist shot into the top corner for his second goal of the year.

The final marker of the night came with 8:52 left when Piccinich threw a pass to Connor in the slot, who fired a one-timer. Petersen was able to stop the University of Michigan commit's shot, but wasn't able to stop Maxim Letunov who was right on the doorstep to fire home the rebound for his third goal of the season. The Phantoms had a couple of late power plays, including a 5-on-3 for 30 seconds, but were unable to solve Petersen.
