What a Difference a Couple of Weeks Make

A couple of posts ago, I commented on the Cyclones hot/cold performance and lamented that they were in second place, firmly, but with odds against gaining first place. Well, times have changed - mostly.

Last weekend was another Friday night loss followed by a Saturday night blowout win. I'd really like to see them tune that up but the fact that they bounce back. It shows character and it shows that they slip but they don't like to lose. They'll have to work on that for playoffs but they are definitely on the right track.

In the last 10 games, they are 6-4-0-0 which is consistent with their over season average of .592. Meanwhile, Johnstown as slid with a last-ten record of 3-6-1-0. Their misfortune puts the Cyclones in the #1 place in the division with Johntown now having played the same number of games instead of having extra games in-hand.

Wheeling is two points behind and has played one more game. The race to keep first place is definitely between the Cyclones and the Chiefs and our boys have the momentum. This is a very good time of year to have the edge in the momentum department.

The teams meet in 5 of the Cyclones' last 12 games. Their destiny is in their hands. Three of those games are the final three home games.

No excuses, Cyclones fans - we all need to be there to raise the roof on USBA for these games!
