Cyclones End Skid in Jacksonville, 6-4
The Pee Dee Cyclones headed to Jacksonville Saturday night in search of a much-needed win. With the help of Allan Sirois and Edan Welch, the Cyclones were finally able to end their seven-game losing streak. Cyclones' forward Daryl Moore got on the boards first with a goal coming at the 2:16 mark of the first period. Jacksonville was able to quickly get two goals past Pee Dee's backup goalie, Matt Leduc, to make the score 1-2 at the end of the first. The Barracudas came out hitting hard in the second period, scoring two goals within the first ten minutes, putting the score at 1-4. Pee Dee's Edan Welch was finally able to answer with a goal, making the gap a bit smaller. However, after facing only sixteen shots, the Cyclones pulled Leduc and put in starting netminder, Guy St. Vincent. Just before the end of the second period, Pee Dee's Allan Sirois added another goal to make the score 3-4. The Cyclones owned the final period of the night. Eric Frank "lit the lamp" at the 11:49 mark. Welch soon followed with his own powerplay goal at 14:32. The Barracudas pulled their goalie, Matt Meacham, with sixty-three seconds remaining in play, which gave the Cyclones' Chris Rebernik an emptynet goal at 19:16 to put a cap on the night with the final score of 6-4. With four points on the night, Sirois climbs to the top of the leading scorers list in the League with a total of 29 points. Guy St. Vincent was perfect on the night with 12 shots and 12 saves. Cyclones with goals were: Moore, Sirois, Frank, Rebernik, and Welch (2). Cyclones adding assists: Frank, Boike, Sirois (3), Rebernik, Hickman, Welch (2), and Rollins. The Cyclones return home for another battle against the Barracudas on Thursday, December 14th. It's "Mascot Night/ Cy's Birthday" so be sure to bring the entire family to help celebrate!
