Sunday Wrap-Up: Tomahawks win first road game

October 14, 2012

Conor Lemirande had a goal and assist to help Janesville to a 6-4 win on Sunday over Kalamazoo.

Johnstown 4 @ Michigan 2 - Jesse Kessler and Cody Gylling each had three points as Johnstown beat Michigan, 4-2, Sunday at Perani Arena to earn its first road win of the season and move within four points of first place in the NAHL’s North Division.  Goaltender Collin Brennan, acquired from the Janesville Jets at the end of September, made his debut in a Tomahawks sweater and stood strong between the pipes, stopping 27 of 29 shots. The Tomahawks scored their first goal at 13:51 of the first period when Gylling sent a pass off the right-wing boards to Casey Nelson, who sent a wrist shot from just inside the right point past Michael Pesendorfer.  Kessler, who received the secondary assist on Nelson’s goal, took a shot from the left point and Brandon Reinholz picked up the rebound, scoring at 16:06 to make it 2-0.  The Tomahawks were able to kill four of five penalties and capitalized on two of six power-play chances. Both power-play goals came in the second period with the Tomahawks already leading, 2-0. Kessler received a cross-ice pass from Gylling as he moved in off the left point to score at 9:27, and 5:01 later Gylling set up Jordan Watt, who beat Michigan’s Michael Pesendorfer to make it 4-0.  The Warriors’ Connor Lyons scored Michigan’s first goal at 4:15 of the third, ruining the shutout for Brennan.  Michigan outshot Johnstown, 14-6, in the third and made it 4-2 on a goal from Darren McCormick. Boxscore

Janesville 6 @ Kalamazoo 4 – Two goals in the final three minutes of the game from Eric Cruickshank and Cody Rodgers was the difference as Janesville earned a weekend split in Kalamazoo with a 6-4 win on Sunday.  Kalamazoo started strong as they jumped out a 2-0 lead in the 1st period with goals from Brennan Sanford and Danny Hamburg.  However, Janesville did a good job of answering back with goals from Matt Salituro and Conor Lemirande.  Janesville would take their first lead of the game by scoring the only two goals of the 2nd period from Eric Carlson and Ruslan Pedlan.  Kalamazoo came back in the 3rd period to tie the game at 4-4 on goals from Robbie Payne and Luc Boby before the late game Jets heroics.  Brock Kautz made 30 saves in the win, while Nicholas Stuart made 20 saves in the loss.
