Tommies get it done versus Panthers

Wow, what a huge weight lifted from the shoulders of the Tommies. Mitch Price with a three point effort and Ryan Lehr with 2 first period goals helped to end the winless drought at 9 games. Final score was 7 to 5.

STU fell behind early in this one being down 2 goals by the 6 minute mark of the first but would score the next 4 goals to bring hope back. Ryan Lehr, Mitch Price, Ryan Lehr, and Corey Banfield on a pretty passing play made it 4 to 2 by the 17:01 mark of the first. The Tommies out shot the Panthers 15 to 7.

UPEI would score the only goal of the second period at 3:44 to shrink the Tommies lead to one. The third period lead ended up being very short as the Panthers would tie the game 21 seconds into the third but St. Thomas found something down deep and could not be stopped on this night. Island native Devan Praught replied at 5:44 and Mitch Price with his second of the game scored less than 2 minutes later for another 2 goal cushion. PEI slipped one more past Matt Davis in the Tommies net but Erick Tremblay got the back breaker at 16:19. Davis closed the door the rest of the way for the win facing 29 shots. Ryan Lehr, Mitch Price, and Devan Praught all had multi point nights while the Tommies fired 33 shots at UPEI goalie Wayne Savage.

Next game for the Green and Gold is in Antigonish next Friday night, 7 Pm versus X. DG:Tommies secure initial win (Including men's and women's recaps) and Box Score also AUS Roundup from Halifax Herald.
