Road Warriors Down Cyclones, 5-3

GREENVILLE, South Carolina (WKRC) -- The Greenville Road Warriors (28-20-2-3) scored three times in the third period to defeat the Cincinnati Cyclones (30-20-1-1) by a 5-3 final score in front of 1,832 at Bon Secours Wellness Arena on Monday night

The Road Warriors took a 1-0 lead just 52 seconds into the opening stanza when Marc-Olivier Vallerand's wrist shot from just across the blue line beat Rob Madore (L, 17 saves, 12-10-0) past his glove side pad. The Cyclones answered back at 9:44 when Josh Shalla batted in a loose puck out of mid-air for his 8th goal of the season, evening things at one during a delayed penalty. Unfortunately, Greenville's power play unit lit the lamp with less than a minute to play in the period, as Andrew Rowe fired a bouncing puck off the right goal post and into the net. The marker gave the home team a 2-1 edge through 20 minutes.

Cincinnati knotted things up again on another delayed penalty midway through the middle frame. At 8:21, with Madore pulled for the extra attacker, Mike Dalhuisen blasted a point shot past Jason Missiaen (W, 32 saves, 7-4-0-1) to make it a 2-2 game. The Cyclones held the Road Warriors to just four shots in the second period and remained deadlocked after two.

Rowe was able to put the home team back ahead at 4:01 of the final period when he caught a long lead pass and backhanded home his second of the game, making it 3-2. Then, at 7:44, Emerson Clark curled from behind the net to the right circle and fired in an insurance marker - extending the Road Warriors cushion to 4-2. Greenville made it 5-2 at 16:44 when Vallerand led a long pass to Josh Nicholls which resulted in a breakaway goal. Cincinnati's Dan Eves lit the lamp at 17:16 for his fifth goal of the season, but it wasn't enough as the Road Warriors hung on to win by a 5-3 score.
