Pre-season: Ladies start off with a win.

The Tommies started the 2008-09 season at home versus Les Aigles Bleus this afternoon at the LBR. Final score was 5 to 2 with the re-match going tomorrow afternoon in Moncton.

The line of Duguay/Hammerheim/Blackmore accounted for 3 of the 5 goals and 8 points overall. Jessica Holt chipped in off the point and Lyse Rossignol had her first goal as a Tommie.

UdeM was first on the board when a shot and scramble in front of the Tommies net put the Ladies behind. STU settled down after that and scored their first at 9:37 as Ashley Duguay poked a puck in that squeaked through the UdeM keeper off a shot from Lucrece Nussbaum. Ninety seconds later Lyse Rossignol cashed in by shooting and following up on her own rebound. Three minutes later Jessica Holt jumped in off the point on a UdeM turnover and buried one shorthanded to make it 3-1.

In the second the Ladies showed great control down low and sweet Caroline Hammerheim found the twine from the slot. Caroline had a great game all around including diving out to block a shot in the third. UdeM scored on a weak play by STU but the Tommies were fighting off a 5 on 3 PK. Last goal was scored by Ashley Duguay with 24 seconds to go in the second to make it 5-2.

St. Thomas out shot Moncton 11-5 in the first, 14-10 in the second and 10-7 in the third. Mia Leander got the start in net facing 22 shots.

Men's action: The Tommies were outscored 5 to 2 against Moncton in a chippy affair at the Bouctouche Arena. Rookie forward Jason Rinzler had both Tommies goals. Two of Moncton's goals were scored off of bad bounces from the boards and into empty nets. Guy Miszczak started in net and allowed 3 goals before Ben MacFarlane relieved him. Story
