Cyclones Fall Following Third Period Push
Kalamazoo, MI - The Cincinnati Cyclones (35-24-2-0) fell to the Kalamazoo Wings, 4-1, on Saturday night. Forward Daniel Muzito-Bagenda netted to lone goal for the Cyclones, who see their two-game winning streak snapped.
Cincinnati drew first blood just 5:48 into the opening period when Muzito-Bagenda rifled a shot from the right circle that trickled through the legs of Wings goaltender Joel Martin to put the Cyclones ahead, 1-0. Kalamazoo managed to tie the game roughly 10 minutes later when forward Scott Henegar capitalized on a scramble in front of the Cyclones' net to pull his side even, 1-1, through 20 minutes.
The Wings pushed their lead to 2-1 after the second following a goal from forward Lane Scheidl early in the frame. Cincinnati applied the offensive pressure in the third, receiving multiple Grade-A scoring chances, however two goals just :30 apart from Kalamazoo's Aaron Irving and Jimmy Mullin sent the Cyclones to a 4-1 loss.
Kalamazoo outshot the Cyclones, 39-24, with goaltender Jason Kasdorf stopping 35 in the loss. The Cyclones return home on Sunday afternoon to host the Toledo Walleye. Faceoff is scheduled for 3:05pm ET.
