Three in a row for Tommies

It took a while but the Tommies are finally feeling some wind at their back as opposed to hitting them square in the face. STU got their third win a row tonight defeating the Dalhousie Tigers 6 to 2 in Halifax. With the win the Tommies can not be caught in the standings by Dal. and have clinched 7th spot in the AUS.

It didn't take long for the Tommies to strike tonight. The Tigers took an early penalty at the 22 second mark and 15 seconds later Corey Banfield converted on the nice pass from Devan Praught. Devan would get the Tommies 2nd goal at 11:07 when he showed some nice hands taking the puck and going forehand to backhand beating Josh Disher up high. The Tigers came back just over 3 minutes later with their first goal from James Blumenauer. It stayed that way until 19:53 when Andrew Andricopoulos gained the Tigers line and fired a strong pass to Max Chamberland who scored on the one timer to restore the 2 goal lead heading to the second period.

It took 10 minutes for STU to score in middle frame when Devan Praught got his second from Max Chamberland and Corey Banfield. Just under 2 minutes later, with the team shorthanded, Bryan Main gained control of the puck in his own zone, raced up the boards creating a 2 on 1 rush, and sent a good pass to Max Chamberland for his second goal. Jason Rinzler would get in on the scoring act at 14:12 for the Tommies 6th goal with assists to Welcher and Turgeon.

St. Thomas took their foot off the gas in the third and Tyler Dick scored the only goal of the period at 13:44. At 5:45 the fire works started when Brad Larsh and Brad Gallant got into a good punch up and Randy Corey gave the decision to Gallant, who will probably face a 2 game suspension, if not more. Corey Banfield and Max Chamberland both had 4 points on the night. Ben MacFarlane picked up his 3rd win in a row and STU outshot the Tigers 41 to 32. The Tommies head to Acadia tomorrow afternoon to play the Axemen at 2PM. The game will be live on 95.7 CKTP. Entire AUS sport roundup from HCH
