Tommies take it to Mounties

The Lady Tommies finished their record setting regular season with a win in Sackville this evening against the Mount Allison Mounties. On the strength of five goals in the first two periods the Tommies coasted to a 5 to 1 victory.

STU opened the scoring at 5:08 of the first period on a goal by Caroline Hammerheim with the assist to Ashley Duguay. Forty one seconds later Lyse Rossignol padded the lead on an unassisted marker, which turned out to be the eventual game winner. The Tommies controled the play with a 9 to 2 shot edge in the first.

Sackville native Jilian Coughlin did most of the damage in the second period scoring her team leading 11th and 12th goals of the season. She scored her first of the night at 7:37 with assists to Rossignol and Bernier. Her second was scored at 11:16 with Dominique Bernier getting her second assist and Micheel Goguen drawing the other helper. The Tommies finished off their scoring at 17:52 as Bernier scored for her third point of the night. Lyse Rossignol picked up the only assist for her third point.

The Mounties broke up Julia Sharun's shut out bid at 10:56 when Heather Morgan scored on the power play. Final shots on goal favoured St. Thomas 36 to 14. With the win Sharun has 14 wins on the season, a team record.

The Tommies enter the play-offs as the third seed and start their run at an AUS Championship next Friday night at 7PM against the host UPEI Panthers.

With her 3 point night Lyse Rossignol finishes the regular season in 10th spot in league scoring. Dominique Bernier finishes 4th in the AUS for defence scoring. Julia Sharun lead the league in saves and minutes played and finished second in shut outs, wins, and save percentage. Daily Gleaner: STU Tommies down Drover's Mounties 5-1
