Cincinnati Collects Fifth Overtime win of the Season

 

Cincinnati, OH- The Cincinnati Cyclones (28-11-6-0) picked up a come-from-behind, 4-3 overtime win over the Indy Fuel on Friday Night. Forwards Mason Mitchell and Ben Johnson, along with defenseman Justin Baudry scored the goals in regulation, while defenseman Tobie Bisson scored the winner in overtime win for Cincinnati, who earn their fifth win in the last six outings.  

The Fuel jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, getting goals 52 seconds apart from forwards Michael Doherty and Spencer Watson to take a two-goal edge 3:52 into the first.

Cincinnati chipped into the deficit about two and a half minutes later when Mitchell came down the right side on a three-on-one rush and snapped a shot past Fuel goaltender Chase Marchand to trim Indy’s lead to 2-1 after 20 minutes.  

The Cyclones tied the game 9:15 into the second period when Baudry came into the slot and hammered home a loose puck to pull Cincinnati even, 2-2. 

The 2-2 score held up throughout the remainder of the second period, and in the third the Fuel regained the lead 3:22 in when defenseman Jake Ryczek found the back of the net to put Indy back up, 3-2. 

The momentum was short-lived, as roughly seven minutes later, Cincinnati evened the game back up when Baudry took a shot that was tipped in by Johnson on the power play to re-tie the game, 3-3.

The teams battled throughout the remainder of the period, however the 3-3 tie persisted, and the teams headed to overtime. In the extra session, Cincinnati needed just 1:42 to collect their 13thcome-from-behind win of the season, when Bisson came down the left side and snapped in a shot to lift the ‘Clones to a 4-3 overtime win.

The Cyclones outshot Indy, 38-25, with goaltender Michael Houser stopping 22 in the win. Cincinnati closes out their weekend on Saturday night when they welcome in the Kalamazoo Wings. Face-off is set for 7:35pm ET.
