Axemen cut down Tommies

The Tommies hung tough with Acadia this afternoon but the final 4 to 2 result doesn't help in the standings. Ben MacFarlane got the start in net being both strong and lucky. Case in point, the game was tied at zeros half way through the first period when a bouncing puck found its way past Ben but an alert Ryan Lehr was able to bat it off the goal line just as it was going in the net.

Acadia would end up getting the first goal at 14:36 when Jonathan Laberge was able to skate out into clear territory and rifle a wrister past MacFarlane. The score remained 1 to 0 until early in the second frame when Andrew Estey got an unassisted goal by firing a bad angle shot that fooled the Acadia net minder. Laberge would score again for the Axemen at 5:25 but the nicest play of the night came when Philippe Bertrand made a beautiful rush into the Tommies end, shake and baked past a STU defenceman, before roofing the puck past MacFarlane to make it 3 to 1. Erick Tremblay would make it close at 11:35 on the PP when he fired a laser past the goalie from Bryan Main and Jason Rinzler.

Just like the game before the STU crew were only down a goal heading into the third but couldn't find a way to tie it. Acadia surged 2 goals ahead on a power play at 15:53 to cement the victory. Final shots on goal were 44 to 17 for Acadia. The Tommies now must head out on the road next weekend in search of their first win. They will face Dalhousie on Friday night and Acadia on Saturday. DG Article: Tommies fall short again.

    There is one team left they have not played ,so maybe Dal is the answer.
    Perhaps a road tripis something they need they have not had one yet. Keep the faith
