The Johnstown Tomahawks fell Saturday night in a close battle with the New Jersey Titans. The 4-3 win gave New Jersey the weekend sweep on the road in Johnstown.
After a scoreless first period, David Matousek got Johnstown on the board first Saturday night with his seventh goal of the season 1:41 into the second period. New Jersey took control of the game for the remainder of the period with four straight goals coming from Ethan Wongus, Eric Charpentier (2) and Dominik Bartecko.
The Tomahawks fought back in the third period as goaltender Alec Rajalin-Scharp held the Titans off the scoresheet with eight saves. Ryan Vellucci and Zach Aben were able to get the Tomahawks within one, but the Titans hung on to win 4-3 and get the weekend sweep over the Tomahawks.
