Tigers trim Tommies in OT

It was another close game this afternoon at the LBR and the Lady Tommies came within 3 seconds of pushing the game to a shoot out. It wasn't to be and Dalhousie came away with a hard fought 4 to 3 win.

STU started off strong when Kyla Blackmore scored her first of 2 goals at 8:11 of the opening frame with assists to Bernier and Rossignol. A few minutes later they went up by 2 goals when Sarah Belmore converted on the pass from Duguay and Hammerhiem. The Tigers replied shortly after on the PP and cut the lead in half. The Ladies out shot Dal. 14 to 4.

There was no scoring in the second period and the shots favoured STU 13 to 10. Kayla Blackmore would get her 2nd goal of the game from Lucrece Nussbaum in the third but penalty trouble would be STU's ultimate undoing on this day. The Tommies had players in the box for both of the Tigers goals in the fianl period and the game winner with 3 seconds left in OT. Final shots on goal were 38 to 30 in favour of the Tommies. Julia Sharun takes the tough loss in net.

With the 3 points given out today from this game and ST FX ending Moncton's unbeaten season in the other, the Tommies sit tied with Dalhousie for 3rd with 16 points, one back of ST FX. All and all a good weekend taking 3 of a possible 4 points from tough opponents. Game Story from Official site
