Cyclone Offense Explodes in Victory Over Rosemont

ROSEMONT, Pa. (April 4, 2013) Centenary broke its five-game losing streak in emphatic style this afternoon with a CSAC victory over Rosemont by the final score of 20-5.

The Cyclones wasted little time jumping on the board, as Devin Sutko (Cinnaminson, Cinnaminson High School)connected with Brittlyn Dendy (Waldwick,NJ, Waldwick) just 23 seconds into the game to take the 1-0 lead. Unassisted goals from Alysia Pinkerton (Frenchtown, NJ, Delaware Valley Regional) and Arden Wright (Coatesville,PA, Coatesville) extended the Cyclones lead to 3-0 just five minutes into the opening half.

Trailing 3-0, the Ravens' Brittany Fuller would score two of the next three goals to cut into the Cyclone lead and make it 4-2. However, the two goal differential would be the closest Rosemont would get for not only the duration of the half, but also the duration of the game. With the score 4-2 the Cyclones poured on the offense with goals from Allie Swartz (Marlton, NJ, Cherokee),Nicole Judd (St. Louis, MO, Lafayette), Pinkerton, Dendy and Sutko to take a commanding 10-4 lead into the half.

The second half would see more of the same offensive explosion the Cyclones have been waiting for, as they scored the first nine goals of the half. In the second half the impressive day would continue for both Judd and Wright as both notched goals two, three and four of the game. Also throwing her hat into the scoring rampage was Erica Tripp (Vernon, N.J., Vernon) who scored twice in the second half.

While most of the action was taking place on the opposite end of the field, the Cyclones received arguably her best game of the season thus far from goalie Andrea Senkarik (Mays Landing, NJ, Oakcrest) who made four stops in the cage to preserve the Centenary victory.

However, at the end of the day, the story was about the Cyclones offense who exploded for 20 goals this afternoon, after only mustering five in each of the previous two games. Offensively the Cyclones had four players record hat tricks-with Wright, Judd and Pinkerton each scoring four times. In addition to the goal scoring, Sutko had a breakout game with two goals and four assists for a team-high six points.

With the win, the Cyclones not only improved 3-5 overall and 1-2 in the CSAC, but they also regained the momentum they had earlier this season. The Cyclones will next be in action on Saturday, April 6th as they welcome Wesley College to Cyclone Field. The game will also mark Senior Day for the Cyclones.
