Tommies get first win in Sackville

The Lady Tommies got their first win of the season on Saturday evening in Sackville to the relief of everyone. STU came out hard and pushed for a 4 to 2 victory versus Mt Allison.

The first period was scoreless with the Tommies holding the advantage on the shot clock 17-11. In the second period Caroline Hammerheim would shove the puck, and the goalie into the net for the first goal of the night. Exactly one minute later Charity Walls got the puck behind the Mounties' net and scored on the wrap around with helpers to Lyse Rossignol and Amanda Burns. Mt A. scored one to make things close but the Tommies would not be denied on this night as new recruit Andrea Fischer got it back 40 seconds later with a blast from just below the dot as Kelly Matthews screened the goalie. STU dominated the period outshooting them 23-6.

In the third, the Mounties would not lie down as they scored at 3:02 to make it 3-2. That is as close as it got, as the Tommies responded well with a tighter fore check and better back check to shut things down. With Mt. A's goalie pulled Amy Kelbaugh from Jessica Holt would ice the victory with the empty netter. Final shots in the period were 14-7 and 49-24 overall for STU.

The stars of the game were the Matthews, Hammerhiem, Fischer line who controlled the play physically. Kristin Wolfe got the win in nets for a Tommies team that was shorthanded with only 5 D and 9 forwards dressed for the game. St. Thomas stays on the road and plays UPEI tomorrow afternoon at 3 PM. We hope to have a game update later in the evening. AUS roundup from the Halifax Chronicle Herald
