Game #2

Here is the second last game in the Video Guy Sportscentre Top 10 of greatest Tommies game in the past 4 years!

#2- STU Lady Tommies vs. St. FX X-Women, AUS Semi-Finals (STU Wins 3-1)

Like I said in my intro, I also covered the Lady Tommies for half a season after their original video person could not make some of the games and Coach Peter Murphy asked me to do it for the rest of the season. I made a lot more money doing their games and actually had fun watching women's hockey. There were some very good players that year with Emily Hobbs, Malin Storas, Karlee Sheilds, Caroline Hammerheim and Amy McLennan as examples. The girls had played pretty decent throughout the year and ended up finishing 4th in the regular season. But this was one of those games where the team is outshot very badly but with a hot goalie, ended up pulling it out in the end. The X-Women were the top team in the league and played really well all season, with a good top line of Jessica Shanahan, Amanda Church and Rebecca Davies. Hobbs stifled them all game with a lot of HUGE saves. The best part of the game is when Storas took the puck, walked in 2 feet from the blue line, and HAMMERED it past the X-Women's goalie Katie Harveaux. Storas jumped about 10 feet in the air with her celebration and Hammerheim added the insurance goal. If Rick Jenerette was doing play by play, he would have said "Malin Storas, Malin Storas with the shot heard round the world!!!!" Hobbs made a big save with 3 seconds left on Kelly Boudreau and STU knocked off the top team in the AUS. The ladies lost the AUS final to Marieve Provost and the Aigles Bleues the next afternoon. This was the upset of all upsets.

Now, my games that did not make the cut...but good games none the less!!
