Big win for Tommies versus X

The Lady Tommies needed a big effort this afternoon against reigning AUS champion St FX and that is exactly what they got. STU improved their home record to 6 and 1 with a 3 to 2 win versus the X-Women. The win jumps the Tommies into a second place tie with X.

The Green and Gold didn't start off very well as X scored the first goal and out shot the Tommies 15 to 1 in the first period. Coach Murphy must have filled their ears with a heart felt motivational speech because a different team showed up to play the second.

Lyse Rossignol from Kayla Blackmore scored at 11:17 for the only goal of the second frame. The X-Women out shot STU 14 to 12. The Tommies kept pressing into the third and were rewarded at 5:25 on the PP as Dominique Bernier from Jessica Holt and Lyse Rossignol gave them the lead for good. While X was still trying to figure out what had just hit them Catherine Boudreau scored 26 seconds later unassisted to widen the margin to two. The X-Women would score one more at 13:16 on the PP to make it interesting but Julia Sharun held the fort as she faced 11 shots in the third. Overall the shots favoured X 40-21 but only 25 to 20 in the final two periods. The Tommies are at home tomorrow afternoon to 3rd place Dalhousie who sit 1 point behind STU. Game time at the LBR is 2 PM. Good luck Ladies. HCH AUS Men's & Women's Roundup
