The Freeburg-Waterloo Raging Bulldogs earned their first varsity win as a hockey club on Tuesday night, and it came in thrilling fashion against rival Columbia.

Down 3-0, the ‘Dogs scored four goals in the third period — including the tying goal with one minute left and winning goal in the final second — to pull out an improbable 4-3 win.

Columbia’s Blake Bulger scored two goals in the first period, and Cody Early added a second period goal for the Eagles (1-5-1). Adam Gauch started and ended the third period comeback for the Raging Bulldogs, scoring his team’s first goal as well as the last-second game winner. Also scoring goals for the ‘Dogs (1-4-1) were Scott Nanney and Austin Patton.

The ‘Dogs will play Collinsville Thursday night in Granite City.
