Sharun huge in Tommies shoot out win

Julia Sharun was expected to be good. No one expected her to be great but that is exactly the goaltending that St. Thomas has been getting from their rookie net minder. Today in Antigonish the Lady Tommies were out shot 46 to 15 by ST-FX but pulled out the 3 to 2 win in a shoot out.

The X-Women pounded Sharun with 16 shots in the first but it was the Tommies doing the only scoring. Lyse Rossignol scored from a scramble in front of ST-FX's net at 16:17 with assists to Couglin and Bernier.

The second period saw another X flurry of shots with the home team registering 17 and the visitors one. But the Tommies made their only one count, as Kayla Blackmore scored unassisted at 4:10.

X was able to break the goose egg early in the third when Anna Barrett scored her first goal of the season at 1:40. Just over four minutes later the X-Women tied the game as Christina Davis got her team leading 17th goal on the power play. The teams would remain tied at 2 until the shoot out.

Dominique Bernier would score the winner, as the Tommies handed the X-Women their second loss on home ice this season. Julia Sharun picked up her 13th win of the season as St. Thomas continues their record setting season. To date STU has 13 wins and 31 points, both team records.

Shootout win provides Tommies with record point total for season

  2. I don't think she was there two years ago, but yea they have to have a goalie on that team to win. oh well, luck of the draw says they have to win something sometime. Perhaps the coach of the womens team should take over for eagles. Has anyone approached her I wonder?

  3. she wasnt there 2 years ago....i said it sounds like the same kinda game from 2 years ago. And the womens coach is a guy and i doubt he would want to coach the mens team. Pete has always coached womens hockey at STU and FHS and he knows the girls game in and out.
