Tommies feel Huskies bite

Post game: Tommies 2 - Huskies 10

The third period started out well with Max Chamberland scoring at the 23 second mark to give fans hope of a comeback but the wheels soon came off the wagon. The Huskies would score 2 more goals to push Matt Davis from net around the five minute mark of the period. Ben MacFarlane would come in as relief but SMU buried three more by him. Final shots were 42 to 17 in favour of Saint Mary's. The Tommies will try to regroup and head to Antigonish to play the X-Men tomorrow night. HCH article

We also got word tonight that Justin Bowers has been called up to the AHL's Lake Erie (Cleveland) Monsters. Congrats to JB. DG Story

Thank you to Randy Corey for the blog and we look forward to reading and listening to the game tomorrow night.

Live Blog: STU @ SMU 2nd Intermission

Another tough period for the Tommies. STU played well the first 5 minutes of the 2nd, but another power play goal by Cody Thornton deflated any comeback hopes. Andricopoulos and Wynn got tangled up in their own zone leading to Colby Pridham's goal to make it 5-0, but the Tommies ended the period on a positive note with Jason Cassidy's power play goal.

I appreciate all of you with the fortitude to stick around for the 3rd period. I hope to be back with another live blog tomorrow night at St. F-X.

Live Blog: STU @ SMU 1st Intermission

The Tommies making too many mental mistakes in the 1st period. Jon Howse, Cody Thornton on the power play and Scott Hotham after Keith Wynn put it right on his stick. The Tommies had a couple of chances on the power play, but it was unfortunately short-lived after Davis' delay of game penalty. Though in Matt's defense, he had to scramble after the Tommie defenders allowed Kyle Doucet to sneak by them for a near breakaway. Tommies start the 2nd on PK, 30 seconds remaining in that delay of game call. I'll be back in the 2nd intermission.

Live Blog: STU @ SMU Warmups

Pregame Warmups are underway at the Forum. Cory Chipman (0-0, 5.28, .833) led the Huskies onto the ice so it appears he'll start and be backed up by Brandon Verge. Matt Davis (2-7, 5.46, .854) starts for STU, with Ben MacFarlane on the bench. A couple of notable scratches for Saint Mary's. Andrew White, a first year Huskie, is not in the lineup. If memory serves, I read last week that he has returned to Junior A. If someone out there can confirm that, feel free to email me at randycorey(at) Also, steady defenseman David MacDonald is scratched for SMU. I can only assume he's injured. I'll try to confirm and let you know on the broadcast. 25 minutes 'til game time, back in the 1st intermission.

Live Blog: STU @ SMU

We're in Halifax at the Forum to kick off the 2nd half of the AUS season with the Tommies visiting Saint Mary's Huskies. Tonight's game starts at 7pm, broadcast live on 95.7 FM CKTP and online at The Tommies are in 7th place at 2-9-3 7pts, 10 points behind 6th place Acadia, who have a game in hand and play UNB tonight. I haven't heard for sure but I believe Matt Davis will get the start tonight for STU, backed up by Ben MacFarlane. Guillaume Misczak, Matt Foster and David Crossman are the scratches tonight. Saint Mary's is tied for 1st place with UNB and Moncton, and I would expect them to come out with an extra jump in their step tonight after dropping a 4-3 decision to X on Wednesday night. The Tommies will want to stay out of the penalty box tonight. SMU has registered 6 goals on 19 power plays in the teams' two first half meetings, a 6-5 OT loss at the LBR on Oct. 25th and a 5-2 defeat here at the Forum on Nov. 22nd. Hope you'll tune in tonight. Next update after warmups. Posted by Randy Corey at 6:00 PM

  2. Actually it was the webmasters fault. I dropped the ball, not Randy, as I had hoped my schedule would allow the typical post game update. My apologies to the readers of the site.

  3. no problemo ! Keep up the good work !
