JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (WTAJ) –– The Johnstown Tomahawks’ season ended Saturday night after falling to the Maryland Black Bears in game five of the first-round series of Robertso Cup playoffs 4-3.

Maryland had the opportunity to get on the board first after Johnstown’s Jared Gerger was called for cross-checking at 10:49, but the defense killed off the penalty. Will Margel scored for the Tomahawks with 1:39 left in the first period, putting them up 1-0.

Daniel Colabufo answered back for Maryland by scoring with 7:36 into the second period, tying the game at 1-1. Johnstown’s Ethan Webb was able to pass the puck to Reed Stark toward the end of the second to put the Tomahawks back in the lead at 2-1.

Once again, Colabufo scored for the Black Bears to tie the game back up 7:14 into the final period. John Gelatt was able to score off of a power play for Johnstown in seven seconds. However, Maryland was able to score off of a power play as well less than two minutes later, thanks to a goal by Dylan Finlay, tying it 3-3.

Maryland took the lead for the first time Saturday night with 6:32 remaining in regulation after Jude Kurtas found the back of the net, leading 4-3. The Tomahawks were unable to capitalize after that.
