Tommies slip past Mounties in shoot out.

The Ladies secured 2 points today but it was probably much closer than they would have liked. Out shooting Mt. Allison by a wide margin,44 to 14, the STU crew would need the shoot out to secure the win. With the 3 points secured this weekend the Tommies have secured a play-off birth and have pulled 7 points ahead of Dalhousie for 3rd spot in the conference.

All of the regulation time scoring came in the second frame. Mount A. would score first on the PP at 12:24 when Laura Lighthall got one by Julia Sharun. STU came right back just under 3 minutes later on a goal by Lyse Rossignol and assists to Charity Walls and Dominique Bernier. That would be it for regulation scoring as the third period and overtime solved nothing. In the shoot out Lyse Rossignol would score what proved to be the winner to secure the win for STU.

Julia Sharun got the W facing 3, 4, and 7 shots, 14 total, in regulation while the STU defence didn't allow a shot in overtime for the second straight night. The Tommies peppered the Mounties goalie, Meagan Corley-Bynre, with shot totals of 13,15,10, and 6 for a total of 44.

The Tommies turn around and play the same teams two weekends from now on the road before their HUGE match-up against Moncton on Thursday Feburary 19th at the LBR. St. Thomas is the only team to defeat Moncton in regulation this year, in fact, twice. Both times in exhibition play in the preseason, mind you, but nevertheless the Blue Eagles and Tommies don't like each other and this game will be worth the price of admission. DG: Tommies salvage a weekend split
