Lady Tommies lose in exhibition play

The Lady Tommies came up on the short end of a 2 to 1 score against John Abbott College of Montreal in exhibition play on Saturday night. Scoring for the Tommies was Kelly Matthews. The Lady Tommies next game is Friday night 7 PM in Halifax against Saint Mary’s.

For those of you wondering what the calculation is for computing the Tommies magic number, here it is. Dalhousie and UPEI each have 6 points and 11 games remaining. 11 games x 2 points per game + 6 points = 28 points maximum for both teams. 28 points subtract the Tommies 21 points = 7 points or expressed in games 3.5 (3 wins and a tie/OT loss). Actually the Tommies magic number against DAL would be 4 (29 points max.) and 3.5 for UPEI because the Tommies have already beat them 3 times this season and if the teams ended up tied for points, the first tie breaker is head to head games.
