Tomahawks Split Weekend with Warriors

Johnstown Tomahawks split the weekend with the Michigan Warriors winning on Friday night, 2-1, and then dropping the second game, 4-1.

Johnstown had a hard time finding the net in both games, but on Friday night they were able to pull out the win with a great effort from Jake Gwillim in-between the pipes.

Johnstown scored both their goals in the first period on Friday night. First Luke Lynch scored a power player goal at 4:02. The assists went to Andrew Romano, and Alex Jaeckle. Then at 14:17 Andrew Romano scored with the assists going to Alex Jaeckle and Steven Quagliata.

Johnstown would then rely on Gwillim the rest of the way as he faced a total of 49 shots, only allowing one puck to get behind him. That lone goal came in the second period at 14:52 by AJ Marcinek. The assists went to Mitch Wedding and Nick Mosher.

Michigan out-shot Johnstown in the game 49-24. Johnstown only had five shots in the second period and then only three in the third.

Gwillim picked up the win and goes to 2-0 on the season. He also has a save percentage of .921 which is best among the three Tomahawks' goalies.

On Saturday night, Johnstown scored the first goal of the game in the second period. It was another power play goal for Johnstown, this time scored by Cam Bleck. The assists went to Trevor Recktenwald and Steve Quagliata.

After the Tomahawks' first goal, Michigan would score the next four straight to win the game.

Goals for Michigan came from Wedding, Sanipass, and two from Groat.

Sanipass's goal was the game winning goal. Sanipass also assisted on two other goals to give him three points on the night. A big game for Garrison against his former team. Ivan Osko also played in the game but didn't have any points. Osko also played on Friday night but didn't have any points either.

On Saturday, the teams tied each other with shots, 29 each.

Shane Bednard was in net and picked up the loss. He now has a record of 1-3 with a save percentage of .838

Note: Dakota Menslage had a fight in Saturday night's game. He dropped the gloves with Michigan's Cam Jorgensen. Jorgensen tried out with the Tomahawks last season but did not make the team.

The Tomahawks are off this weekend, and then head back to Michigan the following weekend to play the Warriors once again.
