Acadia's powerplay spanks Tommies

The winning streak is over for the Tommies. This afternoons game in Wolfville started off well but the PK unit couldn't hold the fort against the strong charging Axemen power play and the final result was an 8 to 2 loss. The Axemen scored an impressive 7 of 8 goals on the PP and their only regular strength goal was scored 4 on 4.

The game seemed to have things happen in pairs. The Tommies scored early at 1:14 and 7:32 for a two goal advantage. Corey Banfield and Andrew Estey each had one. Then Acadia's Paul McFarland scored two in the final half of the first as the game was deadlocked going to the 2nd.

In the second frame, Acadia's Chris Bruton scored two consecutive goals, then Phillip Bertrand scored two goals to push the Axemen up by 4. After Acadia's fifth goal Ben MacFarlane was graciously pulled and Guillaume Miszczak came in to replace him. The Axemen would score 2 more in the third, including Bertrand's hat trick goal. The Tommies went 0 for 3 on the PP.

STU returns to action on Wednesday night at 7 PM versus U de M. This game will represent our graduating players final home game and their St. Thomas jersey will be presented to them. Come out and say "Thank-you" to Matt Davis and Justin Roy. DG: Tommies weekend in review
