No luck in Acadia for STU

The Tommies started off the scoring tonight but Acadia finished it on their way to a 4 to 1 win. The first period saw Acadia out shoot the Tommies by a wide margin of 20 to 4 but no damage was done as the game remained tied at zeros heading to the second frame.

STU started the scoring at 7:01 of the 2nd when Jason Cassidy kept on side at the blue line before finding Devan Praught who promptly fed Justin Roy for a pretty goal. With the wind in their sails the Tommies were playing well but penalty trouble would be their undoing again as Acadia scored 2 power play markers at 9:53 and 13:16. The two quick goals seemed to deflate the team and the Tommies wouldn't get any closer. Acadia out shot the Tommies 15 to 13 in the period.

David Lomas would score the sure fire back breaker at 14:32 of the 3rd as he beat three Tommie defenders and fired a wrister past a startled Ben MacFarlane. Lomas would get his third goal of the night with 3 minutes left in the game to finish off STU. Ben MacFarlane faced 48 shots and the Tommies fired 23 the other way. Next game for St. Thomas will be on Wednesday night versus Moncton. 7 PM at the LBR. Expect a big effort from the Green and Gold.
