Blue Eagles fly past Tommies

The tale of the tape tonight was simple. Moncton made the most of their opportunities and STU did not. The Tommies were by no means out classed but couldn't find the back of the net when they really had to. PHOTO CREDIT: James West, Daily Gleaner.

Moncton was first on the board when Valerie Bosclair scored on the power play at 5:22 of the first. St. Thomas was able to respond just over 6 minutes later at 11:40 when Kelly Matthews set up Kayla Blackmore who sent the puck upstairs past the Moncton goalie Kathy Desjardins. Johannie Thibault scored the eventual game winner at 16:04 when she held on to the puck in the slot long enough to go around Julia Sharun and deposit the puck into the empty net.

Les Aigles Bleues would score one more in the second period to finish off the scoring on this night. The Tommies pressed hard in the third and out played Moncton but could not solve Desjardins in the U de M net. STU out shot Moncton 30 to 23.

The Tommies head to Sackville on Sunday to end their regular season against the Mounties. The following weekend the playoffs begin at UPEI and it seems likely that the host team will be playing STU in round one.

  1. I have not attended a ladies game this year, but it sounds like they are back to where they have always been.....namely a team that wins simply because of a goaltender. If she wins the team wins.

  2. You state you have not attended a game , but you make such an ignorant comment.. An uneducated assumption. Doesn't really make sense to me. Come watch and then make a comment and I'll respect it.

  3. ouch! You sound like you are emotionally involved? Why would I go to a STU female game when there are good re-runs of Little House on the Prarrie on TV. Both feature too much drama, poor acting and poor ratings.
