The Tomahawks endured a tough weekend, pickup up three out of a possible six points against Aston and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.


Johnstown is currently in second place and only one point behind the Titans for the Division lead.


Alex Alger and Kelly O'Brien are tied for the Tomahawks lead in points with 10. Alger, a Miami (OH) University commit was one of Johnstown's leading scorer's last season.


Also on Johnstown's roster is reigning East Division star of the week Adam Pilewicz who has five points in eight games.


New Jersey


New Jersey split the weekend series last week with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Aston and are still sitting atop the division with 15 points.


In WBS, the Titans and Knights had tough 60 minutes of hockey but it would be the Titans who would use goals from Jesse Farabee and Adam Hascic to earn the 2-1 victory.


The next night in Aston, New Jersey and the Rebels had a physical contest that would see two lead changes. Eventually, both teams went into the shootout round where the Rebels captured the extra point and the victory 4-3.


Anthony Cusanelli leads the Titans with 12 points (seven goals and five assists). He also has the team lead in shots with 30.


The next time the Titans are at home is against the Knights on Oct. 23 at 7:30 p.m.
