Unlucky Friday the 13th? You Bet!

St. Mary’s 3 Tommies 1. In a game where the Tommies out shot and out chanced their opponent, they didn’t out scrore them. The final shots on goal were 30-28 favouring the home team. The only goal came late in the second period and was scored by Jeff Bateman with assists to Kyle McAllister and Miguel Delisle.The Tommies were down 2 at the end of the first but came out firing in the second period. The team must have had 5 or 6 great chances to score but lady luck turned her back. Midway through the period the boys hit the post twice in the span of 10 seconds. Andrew Sim got the start in net and made some great saves in the loss and looked sharp on several occasions.The team gets another chance at lowering their magic number tomorrow night against first place Acadia. The game will be broadcast by The AVR Network, please see the broadcast page for more details. The Tommies magic number is at 3.5 with UPEI’s win tonight against Dalhousie. See you tomorrow night at the LBR. Show up and support your St. Thomas Tommies.

In Ladies action the Lady Tommies were also defeated 6-3 by St. Mary’s in Halifax. The game was close but the Huskies scored 2 goals in the final minute. Scoring for the Lady Tommies was Hannah Muir, Caroline Hammerheim, and Amy MacLennan.
