Squirrels continue to frustrate Tommies

Tommies 1 UNB Squirrels 3.In a close game tonight, the Tommies came up on the wrong end of a 3 to 1 score. UNB’s goalie stole several sure goals and certainly deserved the first star in this game. Miguel Delisle scored on a break away in the second half of the first period to tie the game at one. Assists to Chris Cook and Mike Couch.The Tommies certainly deserved better tonight but couldn’t capitalize on their chances. Jeff Bateman and Kyle McAllister had glorious chances to score but got robbed by the Squirrel net minder. UNB’s final goal was scored on the empty net to seal the deal. Final shots on goal 34 for UNB and 27 for the Tommies. The Tommies next game is Friday night against UPEI. Note the time, it is a 6 PM start. The Panthers lost tonight 2 to 0 against Moncton. This means the Tommies magic number is 1.5. With a win on Friday night the Tommies clinch a playoff spot. The game will be broadcast over the internet by UPEI radio, please see the broadcast page for more details. In other AUS action tonight, Acadia pounded St FX 8-3 and St. Mary’s handled Dalhousie 5 -2. UNB, Moncton and Acadia have all clinched a playoff berth.As soon as time permits the “What’s a Tommie?” page will be updated with information about the Tommies mascot “Tommy the Tom Cat”. Thanks to the St. Thomas Student Union for lending a photo of our beloved mascot.
