The rivalry between eastern Iowa’s United States Hockey League teams builds toward hoisting the Dupaco Community Credit Union Cowbell Cup this spring and begins when the Waterloo Black Hawks host the Dubuque Fighting Saints on Friday, October 28th.
The Hawks, Saints and Cedar Rapids RoughRiders battle for the trophy each winter. All three teams participate in a dozen regularly scheduled games which count toward claiming the prize. During the 2015/16 season, the RoughRiders won the Cup for the first time.
“We would like to thank all of Dupaco’s members and employees for their enthusiastic support of these games,” said Black Hawks Vice President of Sales and Marketing Joe Greene. “This trophy and these rivalries mean a lot to Black Hawks fans, and we will be following the Dupaco Cowbell Cup standings just as closely as the overall USHL standings this season.”
The Black Hawks last won the Dupaco Cowbell Cup during the 2013/14 campaign.
The Fighting Saints and the RoughRiders will play eight regular season games against one another, so the first two matchups on September 24, 2016 and November 18, 2016, will not count towards the Dupaco Cowbell Cup standings.
