Tommies win home opener 3 to 1

The Lady Tommies got the best of St. FX getting their second win of the season 3 to 1. X controlled the play in the first but Amy Kelbaugh went five hole on a nifty pass from Charity Walls to get STU on the board first. Shots on goal were 15-9 for the X-Women.

The 2nd period saw St. Thomas come out better than the first but penalty trouble limited their time in the offensive zone. Time for the penalty killers to step up and they were able to keep X off the board. Caroline Hammerheim would get the eventual game winner when she jumped on a rebound off a shot by Kelly Matthews with the 2nd assist to Jssica Holt. X lead had the advantage in shots at 17 - 7 but STU had the advantage where it mattered 2 to 0 at the end of the 2nd frame.

In the third period Coach Murphy tinkered with the lines and put Rossignol, Kelbaugh, and Coughlin together. First shift for the new combination worked out immediately with Coughlin scoring on a pretty feed from Kelbaugh. Second assist to Lyse Rossignol. X would score shortly after but that was it.

Julia Sharun got the win making a few highlight reel type saves on 40 shots while STU countered the other way with 21. A good crowd made it out to see this game and loved every minute of it.

According to the AUS site tomorrows game against Dalhousie has been cancelled. We will confirm this as soon as possible.
