Un-X-pected bounces do in Tommies

The Tommies couldn’t follow the bouncing puck and it kept finding it’s way behind Aaron Molnar. St. FX scored a late first period goal on the power play that was deflected. Then scored it’s second goal in the exact same fashion, on the PP and deflected. The Tommies scored first to take the lead on a goal by Mike Couch with assists going to Brent Varty and Alex Gilbert. The lead was short lived because the puck seemed to favour the X-men all night.

X scored their 3rd goal with 2 seconds left in the 2nd period to take a 3 to 1 lead and again the puck took a bad bounce into the Tommies net. The icing on the cake was a third period shorthanded goal to end the scoring.

With the win tonight and a UPEI loss to Acadia (3 - 4) the X-men secure a playoff berth and move to within 2 points of STU for 5th place. The Tommies out shot the X-Men 37-31. The next men’s game is tomorrow night against Dalhousie. Game time is 7 PM at the LBR. Tomorrow afternoon the Lady Tommies play Mt Allison, 2 PM at the LBR. Come out and support your St. Thomas Tommies.
