Panthers no match for Tommies

On the strength of 2 first period goals the Lady Tommies defeated the visiting UPEI Panthers 5 to 1. The Tommies enter the Christmas break firmly in fourth place and within striking distance of a first round bye in the play-offs.

In today's contest St. Thomas struck first at 10:37 when Catherine Boudreau scored her first goal of the year from Nussbaum and Matthews. Just over two minutes later the Tommies scored goal number two off the stick of Jillian Coughlin from Rossignol and Blackmore. The Ladies dominated and out shot UPEI 15 to 4.

PEI got their only goal of the game 3/4 of the way through the second frame on the PP. The rest was all STU. Sarah Belmore connected with her first of the night from Boyle and Duguay to restore the 2 goal cushion.

The third period saw Belmore and Coughlin score their second goal each while Kayla Blackmore, Lyse Rossignol, and Ashley Duguay all got their second assists of the evening. Julia Sharun got the win in the Tommies net facing 17 shots. The Tommies shot 43 pucks at Kate Read in the PEI net for their second consecutive win over PEI in the past week. The Tommies next action will be Saturday January 10th when second place ST FX is in town. DG: Tommies finish strong
