Tomahawks lose shutout
The adage – as Johnstown Tomahawks coach Jason Spence affirmed after his squad’s 2-0 loss to the Janesville Jets on Friday at Cambria County War Memorial Arena – is that you can’t win if you don’t score.
While the Tomahawks came up short on the scoreboard, they weren’t short on chances.
Tomahawks return home to face Jets
Johnstown Tomahawks coach Jason Spence knows numbers can be deceiving.
For instance, the Tomahawks’ Matt Meier had two goals and three points on Saturday night. Goaltender Brett Young made 41 saves.
Those statistics are impressive for 60 minutes of work. Both players had solid efforts, especially during a road game. On paper, the numbers looked good enough for a victory.
Warriors hand loss to Tomahawks
The Johnstown Tomahawks got on the board first, but the Michigan Warriors scored three unanswered goals for a 3-1 victory on Friday night.
The Warriors moved two points ahead of the Tomahawks for second place in the NAHL North Division.

Tomahawks live up to community commitments
The Johnstown Tomahawks’ impact might be felt for years to come thanks to the NAHL Tier II Junior A team’s work with youth and high school hockey programs throughout the region.
In their second year at Cambria County War Memorial Arena, the Tomahawks have done a solid job of winning over fans with a hard-working, fast-paced brand of hockey. The team’s ownership group and front office also have lived up to a promise made in the weeks and months leading up to the Tomahawks’ official move to Johnstown.
