Tommies shut down Tigers

Julia Sharun lead her Lady Tommies into battle this afternoon against a hard charging Tigers team and was unbeatable. The game had big implications in the standings as STU had a 2 point lead over Dalhousie for 3rd in the conference. With the 2 to 0 shut out victory the Ladies keep pace with ST FX, who trimmed Moncton in overtime this afternoon.

The Tommies withstood a first period barrage by keeping the game scoreless, as the Tigers out shot STU 14 to 5. Jillan Coughlin opened the scoring at 12:36 of the 2nd period and the Tommies out shot Dal. 8 to 4, taking the one goal lead to the dressing room after 2 periods.

Lyse Rossignol added the insurance marker at 9:23 on the PP with the assists going to Kathleen Boyle and Dominique Bernier. Julia Sharun closed the door the rest of the way facing 23 shots for her first shut out victory of her AUS career. The Tommies fired 25 the other way. Official Site: Clean sweep in Halifax
