Cyclones Storm Over Trenton
In what has become a team of streaks, the Titans ended a two game winning streak and replaced it with what they hope will not be a multi-game losing streak as they dropped a 4-0 decision to the Cincinnati Cyclones.
The Cyclones started the scoring early as Garrett Wilson scored a goal on a rebound in front of Titans goalie Scott Wedgewood while Flyers prospect Tyler Hostetter sat in the box for slashing.
Wilson would score again also on the powerplay in the second period on a very odd deflection off Tyler Hostetter that gave Wedgewood no chance.
Things would get worse just a few minutes later as former Titan Andrew Conboy drilled Titans Captain Andy Bohmbach with a very hard full body check that sent Bohmbach to the dressing room and ended his night.
Coach Vince Williams did not have an update after the game as he has yet to speak to the Titans medical staff.
“I’ll talk to them after I talk to you guys,” the coach said.
Without their Captain, the Titans struggled to generate quality scoring chances. The team had inconsistent puck possession and, while they got through shots, few were of high quality.
The Cyclones added goals in the third by David MacDonald followed by an empty net tally late from Anthony Luciani.
The Titans powerplay went 0-7 while the Cyclones were 2-4 with the man advantage which was the main point in sinking the Titans. Coach Williams was brief in explaining the situation.
“We need to be better,” he said.
Cyclones goalie Michael Houser earned his first career professional shutout in the game.
