CYCLONES WRAP UP WEEKEND SERIES WITH WIN AGAINST MAVS

Cincinnati Take Second of Three Straight Against Kansas City

 

Independence, MO- The Cincinnati Cyclones (24-18-2-0) picked up a 4-1 win over the Kansas City Mavericks on Saturday night. Forwards Daniel Muzito-Bagenda, Justin Vaive, Winston Day Chief, and defenseman Anthony Florentino netted the goals for the Cyclones, who have won two in a row against the Mavericks.

Cincinnati struck first while on the power play at the 1:25 mark of the opening period, when defenseman Eric Knodel sent a pass to Muzito-Bagenda and he rifled a shot in past Mavericks netminder Mason McDonald to give the Cyclones a 1-0 lead.

The ‘Clones took their 1-0 lead into the locker room after the first period, and in the second Cincinnati struck just 50 seconds in when Florentino launched a shot from the right point that beat McDonald top shelf to extend the Cyclones lead to 2-0.

Just prior to the midway point of the frame Cincinnati added another while on the power play, when forward Justin Danforth sent a pass to Vaive in left circle and he wristed in his 16th of the season to put the ‘Clones ahead, 3-0.

Kansas City responded moments later with a power play tally of their own when forward Shawn Pauly cut the Mavericks deficit to 3-1 after two periods.

Cincinnati put the final nail in the coffin 2:11 into the third when Muzito-Bagenda took a shot that was turned aside by McDonald, but Day Chief was right in front to bury the rebound to complete Cincinnati’s 4-1 win.

Cincinnati outshot the Mavericks, 38-28, on the evening, with goaltender Jason Kasdorf stopping 27 in the win. The Cyclones return home on Thursday night to take on Kansas City in the finale of the four-game season series. Face-off is slated for 7:35pm ET.
