Associated Press

FRESNO, Calif. — It wasn’t as easy as Friday night’s win, but the end result was the same as the Johnstown Tomahawks completed a weekend sweep of Fresno Saturday night with a 4-3 victory.

The Tomahawks (14-7-6, 34 points) are 7-1-1 in their last nine road games and have won seven of their last eight.

This one wasn’t decided until Jeff Bergh scored on an Andrew McDonald assist at the 6:24 mark of the third period.

Bergh scored twice for Johnstown and took 10 of the Tomahawks’ 24 shots.

Brandon Reinholz finished with one goal and one assist. Casey Nelson also tallied a goal, while McDonald finished with two helpers.

Six-win Fresno, the last-place team in the West Division, took 35 shots, well above the Monsters’ average of 18.5 shots per game. Dan Sherer led Fresno with one goal and two assists.

Collin Brennan made 32 saves for the Tomahawks.
