Green Bay Gamblers 3 @ Waterloo Black Hawks 5

Jamie Hill recorded a hat trick as the Waterloo Black Hawks won Game Four of the 2012 USHL Clark Cup Final series to force a deciding, winner-take-all Game Five. It was the first USHL career hat trick for Hill.

Green Bay wasted little time in getting on the scoreboard as Nolan LaPorte took a feed from Sam Herr and scored just 32 seconds after the opening puck drop. It was the first of the series for LaPorte. Jamie Hill would answer for the Hawks later in the period as he netted a goal on the power play. It was the first power play goal of the series for Waterloo which had been 0-for-10 on the man-advantage prior to the goal.

Early in the second period, Taylor Cammarata buried a loose puck to score his first goal of the series and is now tied for the League lead with eight goals in the playoffs. Midway through the frame, Sam Herr tied the score at 2-2 when he tallied his eighth postseason goal. Less than two minutes later, defenseman Ian McCoshen put the Hawks up again when he netted his fourth playoff goal.

Heading into the final period, the Hawks rode the momentum and fed off the sellout crowd at Young Arena. Things would get interesting when Andy Welinski, recently named USHL Defenseman of the Year, fired a shot from the right point that slipped past Waterloo goaltender Stephon Williams. With just under four minutes to play, Waterloo would get another power play and Jamie Hill was again the clutch player when he netted his second of the night. Hill would then seal the victory with an empty net goal in the final seconds.

Stephon Williams made 18 saves to record his 10th victory of the 2012 Clark Cup Playoffs while Ryan McKay made 22 saves in the loss.

The offensive outburst by Waterloo came after they had scored just three goals through the first three games of the series. Both teams have now won one game on home ice and one game on the road in the Final.

The fifth and deciding game of the series takes place on Wednesday night at the Resch Center in Green Bay.
