JOHNSTOWN — HOCKEY

Tomahawks get another victory

BLAINE, Minn. – The Johnstown Tomahawks used a 29-save effort from goaltender Colin DeAusgustine along with goals by Joe Drabin, Matt Meier and Shane Cuckovich to top Bismarck 3-1 on Saturday at the NAHL Showcase.

Johnstown finished the four-day event 2-1-1 mark, winning its last two games.

Drabin extended his point streak to four games with a backhanded goal in the first period with help from Meier, who set up the play from the top of the left face-off circle, feeding Drabin in the slot.

Drabin returned the favor midway through the second period, assisting on Meier’s goal that put Johnstown up 2-0.

A goal by Bismarck’s Huba Sekesi cut the deficit in half.

Cuckovich added to Johnstown’s lead 6:10 into the third period when he cleared the puck on the penalty kill and deflected it off Bismarck goalie Aaron Nelson.
