Cyclone Hockey got back on the ice Friday night after Thanksgiving break searching for redemption on the road against Ohio. But the Cyclones couldn’t pull if off, falling 5-3 in Ohio. 

Both teams came out slow, but the Bobcats found the back of the net for the opening goal with 2:43 left in the first period courtesy of a Joe Breslin power-play goal.

The Cyclones remained cold while Ohio stayed hot, scoring the next three goals en route to a 4-0 lead early in the third period.

Zack Johnson tried to spark a Cyclone Hockey comeback with a power-play goal at the 10:47 mark in the final period. Colton Kramer continued to fuel an attempted comeback with the Cyclones’ second goal just 40 seconds later.

The Cyclones trailed, 4-2, with three minutes remaining but Ohio scored the dagger, clinching the game for the Bobcats.

Tony Uglem added a late goal for the Cyclones, but it was ultimately too little too late as the Cyclones fell to the Bobcats, 5-3.

The No. 7 Cyclones will look for their first win over the No. 10 Bobcats in the two team’s final regular season matchup on Saturday night in Athens, Ohio, starting at 6:30 p.m.
