Top 10 Games Continued

Hey guys, hopefully everyone enjoyed my first foray into blogging on this site, so I am going to continue the countdown with top 10 games with number 8 and 7.

#8. St Thomas Tommies vs. Acadia Axemen (October 21st, 2005) (STU wins 5-1)

Acadia was the best team that season, defeating UNB in 3 games to win the AUS championship in March. STU played Acadia tough all season with a 2-1-1 record against their high potent offense with Brandon Benedict and Kevin Baker. In STU's home opener, STU beat them by a wide margin with the help of Andrew Sim in net. Sim made amazing saves all game, 31 saves in total and was the best penalty killer, as Acadia went 1 for 9 all game. "Saint" Nick Theriault scored a goal on the powerplay and recorded 2 assists while playing a rough and tumble defensive style we used to love.

#7. St. Thomas Tommies vs. Saint FX X-Men (January 24th, 2009) (STU wins 5-4)

This is the first time this season the Tommies have made the cut. With our playoff hopes fading, this game was the perverbial game 7 atmosphere to try and make it a good playoff run. After losing 10-0 on January 10th in Antigonish and losing the 2 points to Saint Mary's 24 hours before, the confidence may have been at an all time low. But with the help of Rigby and Vanier house cheering the Tommies, like the houses would for the annual "Washburn Cup" between the Forest Hill and Harrington residences, the fans made it a rabid crowd and kept the Tommies in the game. Ben MacFarlane kept the team in the game and Max Chamberland had an amazing performance with 4 points, including the game winner with 6 minutes to go, the boys celebrated as they won thier first game of 2009, ending their 7 games losing streak and go into the Mark Jeffery Memorial game with confidence and keeping their playoff hopes alive.

Thanks for reading, games 6 and 5 will be soon.
