LATE RALLY FALLS SHORT IN NEW HAMPSHIRE

Boudreau and De Fulviis Each Net First Pro Goals

 

Manchester, NH- The Cincinnati Cyclones (2-5-0-0) fell to the Manchester Monarchs, 4-2, in the series finale of a three-game weekend. Forwards Gabryel Boudreau and Rob De Fulviis netted their first career goals for the Cyclones, who dropped two of the three games on the weekend.

The Cyclones found the back of the net first in this one, as 12:48 into the opening frame Boudreau took a feed from defenseman Eric Knodel and blew by a Monarch defender coming over the left wing blue line, cut in towards the net and tossed a backhander past Manchester goaltender Sam Brittain to put the Cyclones ahead, 1-0.

Cincinnati’s lead was short lived, as just 41 seconds later, Monarchs defenseman Justin Agosta launched a shot from just inside the blue line that beat Cincinnati goaltender Michael Houser to tie the game, 1-1.

That 1-1 score held up throughout the remainder of the first and in the second Manchester kicked up their offense, receiving goals from forward Corey Ward and Joey Diamond to take a 3-1 lead over Cincinnati after 40 minutes.

Cincinnati made things interesting in the third, as with less than seven minutes remaining in the frame De Fulviis took the puck in the slot and rifled a shot that deflected off of the crossbar and into the net to pull Cincinnati to within a goal, 3-2.

In the final minutes of the period, Cincinnati received a pair of power play opportunities, but with 50 seconds to go and Houser pulled, Manchester forward Gasper Kopitar threw a backhand from the center redline into the open net to seal Manchester’s 4-2 win.

The Cyclones were outshot, 29-25 on the night, with Houser stopping 25 in the loss, Cincinnati returns home for a pair of games this week, beginning on Wednesday against the Ft. Wayne Komets. Face-off is scheduled for 7:35pm ET.
