Tommies fight back to win

You win some, you lose some. Last night the Tommies lose a heart breaker to Moncton, tonight they win a thriller versus Saint Mary's. And what a game it was with the Tommies scoring 2 late third period goals to tie and then the overtime winner for the 4 to 3 victory.

The Huskies came out gunning in this one and took the lead in the first period on the PP at 14:20. They out shot the Tommies 12 to 8. The second period rolled around and once again SMU was the only goal scorer as their power play clicked again early at 1:06 to see STU down 2 goals.

The third period started off in St Thomas' favour when Sarah Belmore scored at 6:12 on the PP but SMU regained the two goal cushion with just over 3 minutes to play when they scored their third PP goal of the night. Things didn't get any better for the Green and Gold when Kayla Blackmore took an interference call at 17:33. Down 2 goals and one player the seemingly impossible happened next. Michelle Goguen scored short handed at 18:21 to cut the lead to one and then with Julia Sharun on the bench for the extra attacker and with only seconds left on the clock, former Huskie, now Tommie, Lyse Rossignol scores to tie the game!!

With the momentum on their side the Tommies won the game in OT when Nicole Dube took the Caroline Hammerheim feed at 2:20. Huge comeback. Julia Sharun snags the victory from the clutches of defeat facing 23 shots while STU fired 34 at the Huskies. The win keeps St. Thomas in a tie for second with ST FX who beat PEI 10 -2.
