Cyclone Hockey headed to Fort Wayne, Indiana, Friday to take on the Indiana Tech Warriors, looking to keep their hot streak going after they secured back-to-back sweeps.

The streak would stop Friday as Cyclone Hockey would go on to fall by a final score of 3-2.

Things started off rough on Friday for the Cyclones, as the Warriors opened the scoring about halfway into the first period with a goal from Cole Barney with Bobby Frieson and Alex Arnold picking up the assists.

Just 1:15 into the 2nd period, Fillip Schultz added on to the Warriors’ lead as Alex Potter assisted him in finding the back of the net for a 2-0 lead. Not even a full minute later, Alex Potter scored a goal for the Warriors giving them a 3-0 lead with still 18 minutes to play in the 2nd frame. With six minutes left in the 2nd, Iowa State’s Brooks Mitzel is assisted by Payton McSharry with a score, cutting the Indiana Tech lead down to 3-1.

As time was running out in the 3rd and final frame, Ryan Nelson got his first goal as a Cyclone and brought the score within one point. Unfortunately for the Cyclones, no more goals would be scored and they would go on to fall by a final score of 3-2.

The Warriors and Cyclones get ready for a rematch at 4:30 p.m. Saturday in Fort Wayne.
