Tigers sink STU in overtime.

The Tommies came close tonight but couldn't pull out the final goal to gain their first win of 2008. The Tigers scored at 3:06 of O/T to defeat STU 4 to 3. St. Thomas showed heart and rallied from a 3 goal deficit before bowing out in period #4.

It was all Dalhousie in the first period as the Tigers scored early at 11 seconds, half way through at 9:33, and late at 18:33. The final two goals were not on the PP but a penalized Tommie player was not back into the play either time when Dalhousie scored. The shots in the first were 15 to 4.

Coach Eagles must have calmed down the troops as the second period Tommies were much improved. Also his new line of Price, Roy, and Rinzler would pay dividends at the 8:30 mark of the period when Mitch Price got STU rolling. He roofed a Jason Rinzler pass after Rinzler had missed on his own chance but followed the puck behind the net and got it out front to Price. Justin Roy drew the other helper. Rinzler would bring the Tommies to within one at 13:51 from Price and Wynn. STU out shot DAL 12 to 7 in the period.

St. Thomas kept coming in the third but it was Matt Davis at the 10 minute mark of the period that made a huge save and kept the Tommies alive. This allowed Andrew Estey the chance to work his butt off and make a great pass out to Max Chamberland to tie the game at 14:34. The Tigers came close to ending it with seconds on the clock but Matt Davis held the fort.

In the overtime the Tommies buzzed the Tigers net for several seconds and missed several chances. Dalhousie cleared the puck from their zone, skated up ice, and promptly deposited the winner behind Matt after STU was inches from the win. Final shots on goal favoured the Tigers 34 to 25. The Tommies will now head to Acadia still looking for that first win. GO GET THEM TOMMIES!!! DG: Tommies pick up point. and HCH: AUS Roundup


  1. Good luck in Acadia guys. You can do it!!

  2. so who was this penalized player you mentioned but never named ? And yeah for Price... about time he got on the board !

  3. They are only six points out off a playoff spot,but they need help. We need to possibly cheer for the squrriels sometimes and the teams up top. Although none of this matters if we don't start winning.
    Turgeon needs to play more,he makes things happen when out there.

  4. Why would we need to cheer for the squirrels ??????????? Don't get it ! And I agree , Turgeon , and Foster, should play more ....

  5. Think about it. They may be able to beat the Dal and STFX for us if we need them to. We need other teams to do the same.
    Dal and X play tommorrow . That does not helpus.
