Cincinnati pushes Idaho to brink.

The Cincinnati Cyclones came one step closer to capturing their second Kelly Cup championship in three seasons Thursday, pushing the Idaho Steelheads to the brink of elimination with a 3-2 win at U.S. Bank Arena. The Cyclones lead the series three games to one, and can close it out with a victory at home Friday.

Cincinnati knows a little about being on the brink, having trailed the American Conference final series three games to none against the Reading Royals before staging a miracle comeback. Idaho would host Games 6 and 7 in Boise with a win Friday.

    Cincy won the Kelly Cup tonight, and what a finish after having been down 3-0 to Reading in the previous series. Idaho looked outclassed physically, with the Cyclones rarely missing an opportunity to hit one of the opposition. Even more impressive, though, was the fact that their defense held Mark Derlago, the Steelheads’ regular-season goal scoring & points leader, to no goals and just two assists in five games. So, congrats to Cincy. Perhaps one day Reign fans will get the opportunity to celebrate a Kelly Cup championship at CBBA.
