The Johnstown Tomahawks defeated the Danbury Jr. Hat Tricks 3-1 Sunday afternoon for their eighth straight win.
After the Tomahawks scored three goals in the opening period of Saturday night’s contest, Sunday afternoon opened with a scoreless first period. This afternoon’s game showed a bit more physicality than last night’s right from the start, setting the pace for the remainder of the game.
Wyatt Stefan opened the scoring for Danbury 2:35 into the second period, getting his team on the board for the first time in the weekend series. Three minutes later, Will Moore scored his seventh of the season to tie the game at one just eight seconds into a Tomahawks power play. James Barbour’s tenth goal of the season, coming at the 13:39 mark of the second period, gave the Tomahawks a 2-1 lead going into the third period.
Will Lawrence secured the 3-1 win for the Tomahawks on Sunday with an empty net goal coming with 48 seconds remaining in the third period.
The Tomahawks are set to welcome the Maryland Black Bears to town next weekend for the final time in the 2022-23 season on Friday, February 17 and Saturday, February 18. Join us on Saturday night for Mental Health Awareness Night. Tickets can be purchased on Ticketmaster.com.
