Cyclones Win 5th Straight

Barret Ehgoetz and Scott Reynolds each scored for the Cincinnati Cyclones (6-5-2-1) as they pick up their consecutive win by besting the Toledo Walleye (4-6-1-1) by a 2-1 score in front of 4,518 at Huntington Center on Sunday afternoon.

The Cyclones once again jumped out to a lead on their opposition, when Barret Ehgoetz deflected home a Benn Olson point shot for his third goal of the season and a 1-0 Cincinnati lead at the 18:06 mark of the opening frame.

Cincinnati extended their advantage midway through the second period as Scott Reynolds took a beautiful pass from Ehgoetz and wristed home his third of the season past Toledo netminder Joe Palmer (L, 18 saves, 0-2-0), making it 2-0 Cyclones.  Toledo was able to answer with a goal of its own just a few minutes later, at 14:04, as Kyle Rogers swatted home a loose puck underneath Cyclones goalie Chet Pickard (W, 31 saves, 1-3-0) for his third tally of the season, pulling the Walleye within one.

In the third period, the Walleye frantically tried to score the equalizer – sending in 17 shots onto Pickard in the final frame.  However, the Cyclones netminder stood tall, including a tremendous save through a screen in the final seconds to help give his team a 2-1 victory.   It was Pickard's first "W" of the season.
