Independent, MO – Trevin Kozlowski saved 32 shots, Kris Bennett scored the match-winning goal with 6:16 left and the Iowa Heartlanders won 3-2 over Kansas City on Saturday at Cable Dahmer Arena. Joe Widmar registered his first multi-goal game of the season. Heartlanders never followed up.
Bennett scored through power play on the left doorstep, his No 11 lead of the season, assisted by Kaid Oliver and Ben Sokay.
Widmar’s two attacks hit the right circle. He opened the scoring at 4:33 of the second half on Iowa’s fourth shot. Hit the right spot, Widmar aimed low and snuck a shot through hole five to score his fourth goal of the season. Widmar has three points (1g) against the Mavericks this season.
In the second goal, a Kansas City defender fell, leaving Widmar alone in the right circle to get past Daniil Chechelev (lose, 7 saves).
In the first period without a goal, Kozlowski saved eight shots and kept the game goalless for 20 minutes.
