FREEBURG/WATERLOO 4, EDWARDSVILLE 2 (SERIES TIED 1-1): A Scott Nanney goal from Parker McDonald just 19 seconds into the game led to a four-goal explosion for Freeburg/Waterloo in the opening period of Monday night's Mississippi Valley Club Hockey Association's Game 2 of the Class 2A semifinal series between the Raging Bulldogs and Edwardsville at Wilson Park Ice Rink in Granite City.

The outburst led to a 4-2 Freeburg/Waterloo win over the Tigers to force a third game of their series, set for 6:50 p.m. tonight at Wilson Park; the winner plays O'Fallon, who eliminated Columbia Monday night, in the Class 2A Final, which gets under way Thursday night at East Alton Ice Arena; Game 2 is set for Feb. 20 and Game 3 (if needed) would be played Feb. 21.

“They scored four times in the first 6-7 minutes,” said Tiger coach Andrew Tucker. “We couldn't come back from that. Other than that first part of the first period, we played pretty well and outworked them.

“We'll be ready (for tonight's Game 3).”

Collin Salter and Mark Tucker had unassisted goals for the Tigers; Jack Lugge had the other three Raging Bulldog goals.
