Tommies have Blue Eagles crying Wolfe

The rookies were the story at this afternoon's STU/U de M game. Rookie keeper Kristin Wolfe and rookie forward Katie Brewster did all the damage as the Tommies defeated Moncton 2 to 1.

Wolfe was hit with 41 shots and only one goal eluded her at 5:31 of the first period. Late in the second frame Kristin would make at least three glorious saves on odd man rushes.

Katie Brewster scored the game winning goal, her first as a Tommie, at 18:10 of the 2nd frame as she ripped a wrister past the Moncton keeper. Charity Walls got the first STU goal on the PP at 11:24 of the first with assists to Laird and Burns. Wolfe did the rest and made the one goal lead stand up. Shots on goal were 41 - 23, advantage Aigles Bleues.

While the shots on goal do not seem favourable, STU had extended periods of pressure in Moncton's zone in the each period and controlled the play for a long stretch in the third. Lucrece Nussbuam was foiled on a penalty shot midway through the second frame. (see video) This years crew will be heard from.
