Between the pipes, Noah West saved 33 out of 34 shots faced, good for a save percentage of more than 97 percent.



For the Tomahawks, Tristan Poissant scored their only goal of the game.

Spencer DenBeste and Max Kouznetsov assisted Poissant’s goal.

Reed Stark accumulated 17 penalty minutes in the first period for Johnstown by way of a two minute penalty for cross checking, a five minute major for fighting Morich as well as a 10 minute game misconduct.
