Cyclones Stun the Renegades, 6-3
The Pee Dee Cyclones traveled to Richmond, Virginia on Friday night to face the Renegades. With the help of sharp-shooter Daryl Moore, the Cyclones were able to overcome Richmond, 6-3.
Pee Dee got on the board first with Daryl Moore's first goal of the evening, to take an early 1-0 lead, which they would hold on to going into the second period.
Richmond's Phillip Youngclaus fired a shot past Cyclones' netminder Brad Buss to even the score at one 5:36 seconds into the period. However, Pee Dee's Moore would strike again with the help of Marcus Reszka to go up by one. The Renegades did not take long to answer, as they got two more goals before the end of the stanza putting the score at 2-3.
At only 1:36 into the final period, Moore connected again to even the score at three. Twenty-eight seconds later, Anthony Becker added another for the Cyclones to take the lead once again. Cyclones' captain Allan Sirois decided it was his turn at 16:32 and, with the help of Jason Slusher, riffled a shot past Renegades' goalie Doug Groenestege to put Pee Dee up by two. Cyclones' newcomer and former Renegade, Scott Corbett added his own emptynet powerplay goal with less than a minute left in regulation. This goal would put a cap on the night for Richmond, as Pee Dee received the 6-3 victory.
The Cyclones will head up I-95 on Sunday to face the Fayetteville FireAntz.
