Mounties steal one from Tommies

Tough loss this afternoon for the Lady Tommies in Sackville. They threw everything but the kitchen sink at the Mt. Allison goaltender but lost 1 to 0 in a shootout. Think we're kidding? First period shots favoured STU....slightly...20 to 0.

The power play unit was 0 for 4 and the Tommies rang six pucks off the iron. The Mounties only move defensively was to collapse everyone into the low slot and pray the goalie would see the puck. It worked. The Tommies were 1 for 5 in the shoot out with Kayla Blackmore scoring on an insane "Crosbyesque" move. Mia Leander takes the tough loss in the STU net. Another 3 point weekend for the Tommies.

Thursday night the Tommies take on their arch rival U de M Aigles Bleues at the LBR. Moncton has not lost in regulation during the regular season and St. Thomas is the only team to defeat them in regulation at all, doing it twice in the pre-season. This game could very well be a preview of the AUS finals. There is a lot of pride on line and it all starts 7 PM on Thursday at the LBR.
