Cyclones Collect Six Points Over Weekend
The Cyclones finished out the weekend with a game in Columbus on Saturday night. Powered by their recent winning streak, Twin City battled the Cottonmouths, and with a third period offensive onslaught, the Cyclones received their fourth win in a row, 7-4.
The first period saw two goals, one from Columbus and one from Michael Richard. Heading into the middle stanza, the teams were knotted at 1-1.
Donald Melnyk gave the Cyclones the lead on a powerplay goal in the second period, but the Cottonmouths added three more to their total to put the score at 4-2. Before the end of the period, Marc Lefebvre got a chance at a penalty shot and capitalized on it to put the Cyclones within one going into the final period.
The third period belonged to the Cyclones. Phil Sbrocchi tied the game with a powerplay goal at 9:57. Ben Manny added another powerplay goal at 11:19 to give Twin City their second lead of the game. Shane Wagner took advantage of an empty net and lit the lamp again for the Cyclones at 19:18. With only a few seconds remaining in the match, Chad Swartzentruber added another for Twin City to put the final score at 7-4.
The Cyclones collected all six possible points with the wins against Richmond, Fayetteville, and Columbus.
