Even though the Johnstown Tomahawks are 938 miles away in Blaine, Minnesota Hawks fans still gathered together to watch their favorite team compete for the Robertson Cup. "For all the watch parties that we have there are countless people that made the trip to Minnesota, that are sitting at home or at a friend's house," said Brennan Miahalick, director of Arena's . "I think the Hawks have a lot of eyes on them tonight in Johnstown. "This is the furthest they have made it in the seven years that they have been here,It has been a really historic season. Johnstown has not seen a championship in our arena is about 40 years so we are really excited, hoping they could go all the way." Most will tell you that Johnstown fans are the best fans. And nights like Friday when they all gather together, is truly what earns Johnstown the nickname Hockeyville. "Johnstown fans are great," second to none. There is a reason we won. Hockeyville people are very passionate and love hockey. This team has been a part of the community they have become friends, community leaders and everyone around here really respects that and comes out and returns the support to them." The Tomahawks will play game two at 5:30 p.m. Saturday and if they win, the Hawks advance to the finals. "We already have our watch party ready for tomorrow; if there is a game three, we will have one then," Miahalick said. "I believe the Tomahawks are going to work on something really big for the championship game but if needed, we are happy to open our doors and let people in if needed like tonight." But no matter the outcome, fans here at home are always rooting: Let's Go Hawks
