FLINT, Mich. - The Jamestown Ironmen had a successful weekend on the road in Flint, Mich., grabbing a pair of wins from the Warriors in North American Hockey League play.
Jamestown received an outstanding performance from goaltender Reid Mimmack on Friday night as the Ironmen shutout Michigan, 3-0.
It was the first shutout victory for the Ironmen since moving to Jamestown at the beginning of last season.
Mimmack saved all 29 shots that came his way and the Ironmen received goals from Luc Gerdes, Tyler Dunagan and Daniel Cesarz. Assists were credited to Matt Lanzillotti, Dunagan and Dylan Zink.
Jamestown fell behind early in Saturday night's game as the Warriors (2-9) took a 2-0 lead late in the first period. Matt Lanzillotti answered for the Ironmen with an unassisted goal with 1:35 left in the first to head into the intermission trailing 2-1.
After a scoreless second period, Jamestown's Luc Gerdes lit it up in the third, scoring a pair of goals within four minutes to give the Ironmen the lead. Gerdes scored once on a power play and received assists from Michael Mozzotta, Victor Johansson and Dunagan as he upped his season total to nine goals.
Cesarz capitalized on an empty net as time wound down in the third period to record his fourth goal of the season and give the Ironmen a 4-2 victory.
Jamestown did excellent on the penalty kill, allowing no goals after racking up three penalties and six minutes of shorthanded play.
Reid Mimmack stopped 33 of 35 shots on goal in his second night of service in between the pipes.
"We got some great games out of Reid Mimmack," said Ironmen head coach and general manager Dan Daikawa. "Michigan played well this weekend, but Reid made some great plays to keep us in the game, and we scored goals when we had to."
Jamestown left Michigan, earning four points and now sits atop the North Division standings, tied with Port Huron at 18 points apiece.
Jamestown has won four straight games and experienced some success on the road which has been hard to come by.
The Ironmen (8-2-2) will play Kalamazoo at the Jamestown Savings Bank Arena on Friday at 7 p.m. and on Saturday at 5 p.m.
