It was a tale of two nights on Saturday, as it was all Wausau in their home opener at Marathon Park. The Power couldn’t get anything going offensively and the Power defense struggled to contain the balanced Cyclone scoring effort in the 7-0 final. Wausau scored three goals in each of the first two periods and sealed the deal with the 7th goal of the night in the third.
