Cyclones rookie Vinny Saponari collected his first professional goal at 16:32 of the middle stanza, as he beat Allen York (L, 22 saves, 0-1-0-0) with a backhanded wrist shot that extended the already extensive lead to 5-0. And thanks to 12 more saves from Cincinnati goalie Rob Madore (W, 26 saves, 4-0-0-0) in the frame, the Cyclones held the five-goal lead at the second intermission.

Megan would again light the lamp as he redirected another point shot from Wysopal through York's legs at 2:01 of the third period. Then, at 9:19, Paul Crowder capped off the scoring with this third goal of the season to make it 7-0.
