Saturday Scores: Tomahawks complete sweep of 1st place Ironmen

November 25, 2012

Tyler Deresky had a three-point night as the Amarillo Bulls completed a weekend road sweep of Odessa with an 8-3 win on Saturday.

Johnstown 3 @ Jamestown 2 - Brandon Reinholz scored his third goal of the weekend, and eighth in seven road games this season, and set up captain Mitch Kontny’s game-winner on the power play early in the third period Saturday night as the Tomahawks pushed their road unbeaten streak to five games with a 3-2 victory over the first-place Ironmen at Jamestown Savings Bank Ice Arena.  Johnstown, which has won a season-high four straight games, converted two of five power-play chances Saturday to complete a weekend sweep.  Goaltender Chris Truehl stopped 35 shots while making his fifth start in seven games. His play was especially critical in the opening period, when he stopped all 17 Jamestown shots on his way to yet another solid performance. Johnstown took a 2-1 lead into the third period and then extended it as Reinholz circled behind the net, then fed Kontny in the slot.  The Ironmen pulled back within 3-2 at 9:42 of the third when a Luc Gerdes shot found its way past Truehl.  Jamestown played a strong opening period, outshooting the Tomahawks, 17-6.  The second period told a different story for Johnstown.  Cody Gylling started the scoring putting a shot past goaltender Tim Shaughnessy.  Johnstown limited Jamestown to just one shot in the first 13 minutes of the second period, and the Tomahawks then built their lead to 2-0 at 15:11 when the rebound of a Jake Fairchild shot bounced to Reinholz at the bottom of the left wing circle and Reinholz fired it past Shaughnessy for his 11th goal of the season.  Jamestown cut the lead in half just 1:45 later at 16:56 when Victor Johansson beat Truehl from the right circle off a two-on-one pass from Ross Pavek. Boxscore

Brookings 0 @ Bismarck 3 – Goaltender Aaron Nelson completed a strong weekend with another solid performance as he stopped all 25 shots in a 3-0 shutout against Brookings on Saturday night.  Bismarck’s Terry Hennen scored twice, which included the game’s first two goals which came late in the 2nd period and early in the 3rd period.  Matt Anders added the third goal to make it 3-0.  Boxscore

Fresno 1 @ Wenatchee 6 – The Wild opened up a big lead early and never looked back, completing a weekend home sweep of the Monsters.  Wenatchee led 2-0 in the 1st period on goals from Blake Roubos and Nicholas Kucera.  The lead increased to 6-0 after the 2nd period as Lance Carney, Chris Kerr, David Powlowski and Blake Butzow scored for the Wild.  Kyle Buffardi scored the lone goal for Fresno in the 3rd period.

Fairbanks 5 @ Wichita Falls 3 – Ryan Hogland had a goal and three assists as the Ice Dogs completed a perfect four game trip in Texas with a 5-3 win on Saturday in Wichita Falls.  Fairbanks led 2-0 early with goals from Duggie Lagrone and Patrick Newell.  The Wildcats answered with two goals from Conor O’Neil and Bryan McFarlane.  Lonnie Clary scored twice in the 2nd period to answer a goal from Ben Kucera and Hogland finished the scoring in the 3rd period.

Boxscore

Texas 1 @ Topeka 2 – Two goals in the final 10 minutes helped Topeka bounce back to get a 2-1 home win over Texas on Saturday.  It wasn’t until the 3rd period that either team got on the board.  The Tornado grabbed the 1-0 lead thanks to a goal from Michael Hoy. However, it would not last as Tyler Andrew scored the game tying goal and then set up the game-winning goal with less than three minutes remaining from Kyle Sharkey. Boxscore

Kenai River 2 @ Corpus Christi 3 (OT) – Rudy Sulmonte was the hero for the second straight night as he scored the overtime winner as the IceRays completed a weekend home sweep of the Brown Bears.  Perry D’Arrisso opened the scoring for Corpus Christi, but that was answered by two straight goals from Dylan Meier and Alex Jackstadt for Kenai River.  Charles Baldwin scored late in the 2nd period to tie the game, where after a scoreless 3rd, Corpus Christi won in OT. Boxscore

Janesville 3 @ Michigan 4 (SO) – Zack Szajner scored the only goal of the shootout as Michigan salvaged a weekend split of their home series with Janesville.  The teams traded goals in all three periods in a very balanced game.  Brock Labelle, Connor Lyons and Martin Gruse scored in regulation for the Warriors, while Nick Albergo scored twice and Ruslan Pedan added the goals for the Jets.

Springfield 1 @ Kalamazoo 2 – Alex Okicki was the difference in the game as he made 49 saves in a 2-1 win for the K-Wings over the Jr. Blues.  Kalamazoo had control of the game early as they led 2-0 on 1st period goals from Robbie Payne and Trevor Boyd.  Brett Skibba scored for the Jr. Blues in the 2nd period to bring the score to within 2-1, but the rest of the game belonged to Okicki, who made 20 saves in the 3rd period alone in the win.
