Aubin, Beauregard, Wilson Deliver Cyclones To First Place
CINCINNATI - The Cincinnati Cyclones got a pair of goals each from Mathieu Aubin, Thomas Beauregard and Avery Wilson, while Dov Grumet-Morris knocked away 18 shots in helping the club to a 8-1 win over Augusta Thursday night. The victory improves the Cyclones to a 6-3 record and a share of first place in the North Division.
The Cyclones took the lead when forward Avery Wilson netted his first goal of the season in the slot at 3:04, with an assist from Jean-Michel Daoust. Cincinnati's lead extended to 2-0, when Wilson picked up his second goal of the night at 18:00, with another tally from the slot. Rookie Thomas Beauregard gathered the assist on that score.
The goals were the first for Wilson in 21 games, dating back to Valentine's Day against Reading. It was also his first two-goal game as a professional. Last night was Wilson's 100th game as a professional.
Cincinnati opened the lead to 3-0, when forward Mathieu Aubin picked up his third goal of the season at 7:27, as Billy Irish-Baker and Bryan Schmidt added the assists. Thirty-four seconds later, Augusta got its first goal when Ken Scuderi netted his second goal of the year. The period would end with another set of Cyclones goals, as Beauregard picked up his fifth of the season from Andrew Martin and Scott Reynolds at 10:07 and with time running out in the second frame, when Aubin scored with 26 seconds to play, as Barret Ehgoetz and Gerard Miller tallied the helpers.
The Cyclones closed out the scoring with three goals in the third period. The first came from Scott Reynolds, his third of the season at 2:14, as Tyler Howells and Andrew Martin added the helpers. Just 17 seconds later, Daoust picked up his second of the season with David Desharnais added the assist. Beauregard closed the scoring at 11:23, as Aubin and Matt Macdonald added the assists.
The eight goals are the most scored by a Cyclones club since handing Reading a 13-2 defeat on Dec. 27, 2002.
